Founded in 2015 by Yaniv Shneiderman, BlazePod is an Israeli technology company that has developed an innovative platform for physical-cognitive training (Body & Mind). The platform is based on custom BLE technology and combines light, technology, and movement measured through a mobile app. The company began marketing the product in Israel and around the world in 2018.
The BlazePod kit comes with four or six pods that include touch sensors in eight colors and is activated through an app where the trainer or exerciser selects the type of interactive training and defines the type of action you want as soon as the selected color appears on the pod. This is how the trainers work on reaction speed, movement, physical strength, improving reflexes and performance, spatial orientation, and making quick decisions.
