Smart leggings by Wearable X vibrate to rectify imperfect yoga poses

These sensitive leg pads by the Wearable X technology brand use soft impulses to give an instant return to the wearer on their yoga postures.

Nadi X leggings have five sensors integrated into the fabric. These connect via Bluetooth to a smartphone application that accompanies it to determine in which position the yoga character is located.

The application displays the pose and uses vibration to provide feedback on where the body needs to be adjusted to improve the position. The pulses are powered by a battery that is cut behind the knee. Vibrations vary depending on how the body should be aligned.

"Touch, which has always been the focus of our brand, is a key factor in how instructors teach yoga," said White Decker, co-founder of Wearable X. According to Whitehouse, the brand has collaborated with more than 50 yogis to develop the application and understand the alignments needed for each yoga pose.

"Touch is a universal language that is natural to try to understand the essence of attention to yoga. Nadi X offers the soft touch of your yoga instructor."

X portables plans to explore the possibilities of using a similar system in other clothes next year, in order to tackle different sports.

The company launched in 2013 with vibrating underwear, intended for couples in long distance relationships and created in partnership with the brand of Durex condom.

Usable X often integrates technology into clothing and has partnered with several companies to create products - including a sports jersey that vibrates with the strengths of football games.

Startup OMSignal has also designed sportswear designed to give an instant return to the wearer, with a bra that can follow the fitness steps and offer workout tips.

Other intelligent training equipment includes a hoodie designed to help athletes relax and trainers that can be personalized with moving images.
