Abstract: We present here a novel application for wireless EMG sensors. To combat the physical inactivity which has tended toward cardiovascular disease in individuals who use wheelchairs, we have developed a monitoring system to encourage these individuals to exercise. Wireless sensors are used to monitor kinematic or physiological metrics, which inform the user of their activity levels during exercise and to track progress of their fitness levels over time. In particular, a new completely wireless, wearable EMG sensor (Dynofit, Inc., TX) is integrated with accelerometer and heart rate sensor data to monitor energy expenditure. The sensors communicate with a custom designed mobile app which facilitates exercise at home, with the aim of helping individuals who use a wheelchair to overcome what are commonly hindrances to exercising.
