Renfrew Group has recently been tasked with taking the WallJAM design on to the next stage. RGi are focusing on design for production, improving ergonomics (target acquisition) assembly and style. The single panel was displayed at the Youth Sports Trust (YST) Exhibition in Telford and was well received by Schools and Sports Colleges.
Interestingly the app and sensor based technology encompassed within WallJAM is directly aligned to the recommendations stemming from YST’s new study, the “Class of 2035”. This predicts what changes have to take place over the next 20 years if children are to actively engage and participate in school sport. Design and final prototyping of the new system is underway.
WallJAM is an interactive rebound wall that is designed to deliver data based on the power and accuracy of a ball strike against an array of sensor based targets. It offers users a new way of training and offers the perfect platform for improving performance and technique. The wall, connects with an app on the user’s phone which allows players to book and play games, upload and compare results and review historic performance data. Such is the excitement surrounding WallJAM it has already attracted a great deal of attention. After successfully testing the pilot at the The Harefield Academy, the company has been shortlisted in the Daily Telegraph Sports Technology Awards in the Most Promising Concept category.
To aid buyers on the choice and size of unit right for them and to help articulate the possible payback, WallJAM have developed the cost and income calculator which can be seen on their Website.
