This project is to study the relationship between blood circulation and muscle movement and to understand the metabolic function between cells. To help the middle-age and elderly improve blood circulation, prevent Vascular lesion and promote blood sugar control. This study uses resistance movements to help middle-aged and elderly people to increase their muscle fibers, improve blood circulation and metabolism, and assist in the blood sugar control. Then it can improve body function, reduce the cause of chronic disease formation, and prevent chronic diseases.

The ultimate goal of this project is to design an interaction sport advice aids in lower limbs sport. Mainly to train muscles to achieve the effect of converting blood sugar into muscles become energy, thereby achieving glycemic control. In addition, muscle movement promotes blood circulation throughout the body, burns excess calories, and prevents atherosclerosis caused by endothelial cell dysfunction.
