Over 50 million Americans suffer from chronic joint pain. One of the best combatants is exercise, but the market currently does not offer solutions without handles and bars, which are especially difficult to use by those with severe hand and wrist pain. Novo is an exercise solution that utilizes magnetic fields to create resistance between wearable magnetic cuffs. The wrist cuffs are powered by solenoids which can be turned up and down or off completely. The other cuffs use permanent magnets, and the combination allows for customizability depending on the user’s ability. This technology has the potential to be expanded to other areas of the body, as well as to incorporate external magnetic sources to provide resistance against the body.
