Singapore-based startup Smartmissimo has just launched an Indiegogo campaign for its product SmartMio, a sports muscle stimulator designed to help enhance sports performance.

SmartMio uses electronic muscle stimulation or EMS, and mimics what the brain does during a workout – that is, send nerve impulses to engage the muscles.

The device consist of two sticky electrode pads that users can attach to the part of the body they want to target during their workout. Users can initiate and control their workout via an accompanying app available for Android and iOS devices. SmartMio comes with pre-set programs for various workouts designed for athletes or enthusiasts of any level.

The device is designed for those who don’t have enough time to exercise or those who want to complement their existing workouts. Smartmissimo founders Alex Pisarev and Filip Almakov created SmartMio to help enthusiasts and athletes enhance their workout with a muscle stimulator that they can use wherever and whenever.

Pisarve told TechCrunch that they are working with various athletes and coaches from different sports to understand their objectives during their on and off seasons, and they are creating a database of various sports and the muscle groups important to each sport, so they can create programs suited for these sports.

Indiegogo backers can pre-order their own SmartMio for $69 and expect them to ship around November this year.
