Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc announced they have made significant advances in the development of several sports related products featuring the Company's patented Bend Sensor technology. Advanced prototypes have been delivered to our client and successful demonstrations of the products have recently been completed. Currently our client is involved in ongoing discussions and negotiations with several major equipment manufacturers and distributors. The Company anticipates that development on one or more of the products could be completed and the product brought to market before the end of the year.

The sports shoes will measure distribution of weight, and weight transfer during the monitored event and will give real time information about the movement of the person, weight transfer and timing. This can be used in training and may also be used to help people who have little or no feeling in their feet with walking since it can be configured to give some other sensory feedback when the foot hits the ground.

The sensor and technology have also been used for running and bowling shoes and is adaptable to bowling gloves and golf club shafts. The products will be used to help measure and improve an individual's performance. Several prototypes of the shoes, gloves and golf club shafts have been completed and demonstrated to major equipment manufacturers.

“I believe that the golf shoe will be the first of the products to market. Demand for golf training devices is ever increasing. There are over 26 million golfers in the US with approximately 5 million golfers who play over 25 rounds a year. We are excited to be able to deliver multiple sports related products to the market. Bowling and golf have millions of enthusiasts looking for improvements to their individual performance and we believe that these new products will offer inexpensive technology for that purpose. The products have generated enthusiastic response every time they have been discussed with individuals within the selected industries. With millions of potential customers and the feedback we are receiving from the marketplace, this product could easily achieve millions of dollars in annual sales,” stated Clark Mower, President of Flexpoint Sensor Systems.
