Squid is a sensitized, wearable compression shirt that integrates with a smart-phone and web database to monitor resistance exercises (e.g. weightlifting). Created by an Northeastern University interdisciplinary team of mechanical engineering, graphic design, and computer science students under the guidance of Professor Dinos Mavroidis (Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE)) and Dr. Mark Sivak (jointly appointed MIE and Creative Industries), the project won the overall RISE:2012 Entrepreneurial Award.
