Running Mate / Healthcare Device

Running Mate
Running Mate

Running Mate is a device that solves the obesity problem at the individual level. This went beyond simply exercising with data such as distance, calories, etc., by adopting methodologies such as racing video games. It selects and guides courses made by neighbors or user-made courses, and allows them to challenge exercise at their target pace. Through this, Running Mate will be a fun first step in solving individual health problems, slowly recognizing the pleasure of users exercising as if they were playing games.
