Traq3D Announces Next Generation Full Body Interactive Fitness Experience with 3D Image Sensor

BAY VILLAGE, Ohio, Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Traq3D, a leader in computer simulation for the enhancement of health, physical performance and fitness, announced a successful launch of the next generation TRAZER® system. Panasonic Electric Works' 3D Image Sensing Camera, D-IMager, was chosen as the preferred 3D motion detection device for this state-of-the-art product.

TRAZER is a groundbreaking interactive exercise technology that was featured on Oprah®, ESPN® and displayed at Disney's® Epcot. Twelve U.S. patents have been issued to date protecting TRAZER's unique capabilities to deliver unprecedented results for those seeking improvements in their health, fitness and performance.

"Conventional fitness machines, such as treadmills, bikes and ellipticals, only exercise the muscle groups that propel us forward. By contrast, TRAZER also exercises the muscle groups that propel us backward, side-to-side, up and down, and that allow us to twist and turn and stop and start. All while engaging the mind as well as the body," states TRAZER's inventor Barry J. French.

"TRAZER measures the previously immeasurable fundamental components of movement. It provides the power to detect movement asymmetries and weaknesses to guide rehabilitation, performance enhancement and injury prevention programs.

"Without TRAZER's patented ability to measure real-world capabilities, the clinician could not effectively manage their rehab program or deliver timely, motivating and uniquely relevant feedback to the patient," French adds.

Panasonic's D-IMager is a time-of-flight sensor that accurately captures image depth information in real time. Depth values for each pixel are delivered without the need for complex calculation algorithms. Patented CCD technology is used in conjunction with eye-safe infrared emitted light resulting in measurements that are not dependent on external reference points. D-IMager is a compact and lightweight solution featuring an aluminum housing that eliminates the need for cooling fans.

Preceding the inclusion of D-IMager, the user had to wear a sensor on their body to control the onscreen action. Panasonic's technology eliminates the body-worn marker affording the user unrestricted movement. TRAZER captures all movements including turning, bending and twisting -- and the D-IMager allows the user's entire body to interact in the activity.

"Physical rehabilitation, sports training and fitness are ideal applications for the D-IMager. Accurate pixel-by-pixel image information enables full body motion tracking for precise feedback on the user's progress. Reliability is ensured with strong ambient lighting resistance and a 10 year continuous usage life expectancy," said Tom Monczka, Product Manager for Panasonic Electric Works USA.

"By eliciting interactive, weight-bearing, 3-dimensional movement from the user, TRAZER exercises far more muscle groups than conventional exercise equipment. Consequently it improves our ability to perform, burns more calories, and sculpts a more symmetrical, athletic body," adds Dr. Alan Davis, M.D.

"TRAZER offers entertaining and effective programs for Fitness and Weight Management, Senior Health and Fall Prevention, Sports Performance Enhancement and Injury Prevention. For the healthcare provider, TRAZER's role will be to enhance preventative, rehabilitative and performance building programs and services that maximize each patient's functionality and promote the well-being of every family member," said MaryEllen French, Traq3D's co-founder. 

TRAZER's new capabilities further increase its utility for fitness and performance enhancement professionals such as coaches, athletes and trainers.
