HIIT

THE TRAINING

The Exercube is a barrier-free, three-dimensional training surface that allows digital and analogue training approaches to be combined. The opening shape promotes social interaction and encourages new forms of collaboration between trainer/therapist and client.

With a strong team of movement and cognition scientists as well as personal trainers and external research and industry partners Sphery constantly tries to push the boundaries in the area of digital therapy and training. 

UNIQUE SALES PROPOSITION: Sphery uses an interactive design approach to gather knowledge from primary, secondary and tertiary users out of the related field. 

The expected results of the training concept get validated and the outcome gets published by our international University partners. It gives credibility to our training concepts and useful insights to further improve it before launching. 

THE GOAL: The development of highly efficient motor-cognitive training concepts providing additional benefits in the area of prevention, sports and rehabilitation.

Cognition

Application Areas

As a former professional mountain biker and current SCOTT-SRAM team director, I follow modern training methodology. In our sport, besides strength & endurance, coordination with cognitive training exercises are at the top priority. The ExerCube really convinced me because it combines all these elements in a motivating, playful way. A really ingenious product also for the use in the professional area!

Skicross is a contact sport where you are often involved in position battles. The ExerCube helps me to focus completely on the race track without losing my orientation. The environment with the walls creates the feeling of a real racing situation, which optimally prepares me for competitions.

With the ExerCube, I bring variety into the training routine of my clients and at the same time increase the effectiveness of the training. I use the ExerCube for both, as a warm-up for my clients and as a 12-minute functional HIIT. As a passionate sports shooter, the training has personally helped me to expand my field of vision.

The games in the ExerCube are understandable and motivating for older people who have grown up with less technology.

In the advanced phase of my rehabilitation process, I can use the ExerCube to reach the last few percentages of maximum performance so that I can start with the handball training again. The immersive environment simulates real game situations in which you are distracted by external influences and thus do not focus entirely on your knee.

Training goals:

  • Return-to-sports for handball

Sabrina

Job: Physiotherapist & research assistant

Field of research: Health and rehabilitation sciences

Training goal:

  • Rapid rehabilitation of patients’ physical abilities

The ExerCube is really great and brings new motivation in an often very monotonous daily rehabilitation routine. I can adjust the training exercises and the range of motion individually and in a matter of seconds and thus, use the device very flexibly. Depending on the severity of the injury or restriction, 100% supervision is not necessary. This is extremely efficient because it gives me more time for other tasks or patients!

Sabrina

The ExerCube combines both of my interests, sport and gaming. The training also helps me for endurance and the footwork in football. The fact that you can compete with other people all over the world motivates me even more to get better and better.
