Recreational athletes strive to stay limber and active but struggle with serious lactic acid buildup and soreness. PDT got to work with Moji to create a truly unique solution to ease their pain.
Moji 360 Dynamic Massager
Heat and Massage
Heat and massage are the prescription for muscle pain, but we found it was difficult to deliver these in tandem to one’s own body.
By implementing carefully positioned omni-directional spheres (with heat!) we could provide a wide range of flexibilities to target major muscle groups and troublesome trigger point knots.
The PDT electrical engineering team tested different battery powered heating concepts to determine which would maximize the heating performance and minimize cost. Very early prototypes were used to test the heating performance.
We developed a printed circuit board assembly to control heating and charge batteries from an external power source. We also developed firmware which monitors and controls heating temperature, battery charging, and provides heating/charging status to the user through a single bi-color LED.
We stayed with Moji to support their first molded product manufacture overseas, ensuring a smooth transition to completion.
