Music bell / Exercise equipment for elders

Music bell
Music bell

Most fitness equipments are too heavy and huge for the elderly to self-training. Sometimes They’re so boring that cause the elderly to break off the training schedule.
Musicbell takes the same principle of barbell’s weights. Users can change the weights which are on the outer portions of the bar to adjust the total weight. Second, by using the Maracas principle, the seeds or beans in the weight will give different sounds when using different weight. Finally, Musicbell can use Bluetooth to connect with player system of smart phone.It's a stereo that not only can let users follow rhythm in training, but also motivate users’ to keep doing that.
