Pain relief doesn't have to come in the form of a pill.

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.

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.

Prototypes of Moji 360

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.

Great ideas are useless unless they can be effectively implemented, so we made creative solutions come to life with a strong mechanical and electrical foundation.

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.

Maximized Performance

Circuit board

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.
