Driven by advanced AI skeletal and putt analysis, it captures players’ postures, stances, and swings, delivering a comprehensive simulation, analysis, and educational experience. Immersive golf course simulation and real-time remote competitions further elevate the training.

iSwimWeaR, another highlight, introduces a smart device monitoring physiological vitals underwater. Its low-power microwave sensing technology, integrated with diving masks and swimming goggles, offers real-time tracking of vital signs with 95% accuracy.

Likewise, it provides safety alerts in real-time, enhancing the safety of divers and swimmers. The device also incorporates swimming posture analysis technology, making it valuable for professional training applications.

Mountain Watch, an outdoor safety system, utilises mesh network devices and a smartphone app to prevent hikers from getting lost. This innovative system, functional even in areas with weak mobile signals, allows real-time location sharing, route planning, and emergency signalling, ensuring hikers’ safety and connectivity.

DeeGoo Digital Test & Training for Cognition Health targets seniors, offering cognitive assessments to detect dementia risk and stimulate cognitive functions. With a user-friendly interface, it simplifies assessments, providing doctors with comprehensive data for evaluation. Powered by AI analysis and algorithms, DeeGoo offers personalised cognitive exercises, showcasing significant impacts on delaying cognitive decline.

BeatSync, an AI-powered interactive music training device, takes centre stage in mental health innovation. Through button-press musical instruments with built-in pressure sensors, it captures data on user performance, serving as a health assessment reference. BeatSync aids in improving mental health, relieving stress, enhancing cognition, and refining brain-to-hand coordination.

ITRI’s CES 2024 display exemplifies its commitment to pioneering technologies that not only advance sports training but also revolutionise healthcare. These innovations, seamlessly blending AI, smart devices, and healthcare solutions, underscore ITRI’s role as a global leader in high-tech applied research.

Smart sports and digital health technologies offer numerous advantages, primarily centred around personalised health monitoring and preventive healthcare. These innovations enable individuals to monitor vital health indicators in real-time, fostering accurate assessments and personalised interventions.

The proactive nature of continuous health monitoring facilitates early detection of potential health issues, contributing to improved preventive healthcare by enabling timely interventions and reducing complications.

Moreover, these technologies play a pivotal role in enhancing fitness and training. Smart sports devices provide advanced analytics on athletic performance, allowing athletes and fitness enthusiasts to optimise their training routines based on real-time data.

This not only leads to better results but also minimises the risk of injuries. Additionally, outdoor safety is improved through technologies like Mountain Watch, preventing individuals from getting lost and enhancing emergency response measures, particularly in challenging terrains.

These innovations promote physical and mental well-being across age groups, making them versatile and inclusive solutions for individuals of all ages. Smart sports and digital health technologies represent an innovative, holistic, and inclusive approach to wellness, empowering individuals to proactively manage their health with accessible solutions.

The initiatives not only demonstrate Taiwan’s leadership in the field but also underscore the nation’s commitment to staying at the forefront of cutting-edge technological developments. These pioneering solutions signify Taiwan’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of innovation and contributing valuable insights to the global technological landscape.
