Pottery Fitness is not a medical application, but helps to train the hands and wrists, and to maintain physical activity for those who lead a sedentary life, work a lot at the computer and may suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome.
While working on the Pottery Fitness virtual potter’s wheel, you don’t need to touch the screen and interact directly with your mobile device. Just move your hands, and the signal is transmitted through the sensor. It feels just like working on a real potter’s wheel.
Pottery Fitness is the world’s first smartphone and tablet application that allows you to fully simulate working on a potter’s wheel, thanks to the sensor.
Step 1. Attach the sensor to your hand any way you like with a glove, bracelet or wristband. You can simply hold the sensor in your hand or play without one.
Step 2. Start the game on your device and select a level.
Step 3. Put your hands in the starting position. A square piece of "clay" will appear on the screen and a cursor will indicate the position of your hands in space.
Step 4. Rotate your hands to use the cursor to remove the "clay" from the workpiece. Try to make sure that the result is a piece similar to the example given in the assignment.
Pottery Fitness requires no special conditions
You can play while sitting at your desk, between work, on the subway/train, etc, at home.
Pottery Fitness is just one of a series of therapeutic games from the Games For Healthy Life project that use the Movesense sensor. The applications and games, developed by Physilect, allow people with sedentary lifestyles and intellectual work to move more and stay physically active.
