RocketBody AI Wearable Fitness Trainer and Nutritionist



What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Anyone can get in better shape with RocketBody. It’s a smart, AI-powered wearable that works out your periods of super-compensation, meaning you workout more efficiently.

 RocketBody analyses your personal metabolic rate, working out your supercompensation periods. It then builds a daily workout plan with nutritional recommendations, tailored to you. Because RocketBody is in tune with your body, your metabolism and supercompensation levels, you end up training at times which are most comfortable for you. This helps you reach peak performance levels in every training session.

 RocketBody is AI-powered to react to your body in real time. If your recovery doesn’t start on time, or you’re not in the best of shape, your AI personal trainer will give you an immediate recommendation on how to improve the situation. Maybe you need to take a supplement, increase or decrease your workout load, take a rest or boost your rhythm? Whatever it is, RocketBody ensures your workout won’t go astray, even for a minute.

 RocketBody gives you an accurate and balanced plan for every day. Set your favorite foods on the RocketBody app, and it will count the necessary calories and macros for you. Using AI technology, RocketBody builds a unique nutrition plan that fits your life.

 Do you want to burn fat, build muscle or just stay in good shape? Whatever your goals are, RocketBody’s AI-powered personal fitness trainer helps you achieve them, fast. Understand your energy levels better, make the right decisions on food, sleep, workout load and volume. RocketBody turbo charges your fitness regime.

RocketBody analyses your heart rate (HR), heart rate variability (HRV), motions when sleeping and your energy level before and after sleep. RocketBody uses this data to define the quality of your sleep and make recommendations on how to improve it. HRV and EKG forecasts coming stress and shows you its strength - this will help you take the action needed to prevent getting into a negative situation.

RocketBody’s algorithms then define the dependence of your metabolism on the input data (i.e. calories spent during workout and calories gained with food). 

 Knowing these dependencies, RocketBody can evaluate how all of the input data influences your super-compensation.


 This way, the RocketBody A.I. technology lets you keep the training schedule you are comfortable with while also achieving the highest possible results.


The RocketBody product is brought to you by a team of experienced fitness professionals, sports medicine physicians, Ph.D. biophysics scientists, and top-level software and hardware engineers. Meet the team on LinkedIn.

We would also like to thank the numerous professional athletes and sports enthusiasts who have spent the past year helping us test our technology in real life.  

RocketBody’s origin story begins in Minsk, Belarus. Ten years ago the founder, Tim Lipsky, was a professional athlete who was sidelined by a spinal and knee injury. Suddenly his goals shifted from intense training to just getting himself out of bed. Fast forward to today and Tim is training as hard as he did before — you would never know he had been injured. His success is due to spending the past decade investigating and testing how the human body can be as effective as possible. 

In early 2016, Tim was working on a hypothesis with the help of his network of medicine and sports specialists. When Paul Bulai—a biophysicist, neuroscientiest, and associate professor at Belarusian State University—joined the project, they made a breakthrough. They achieved positive results in researching EKG signal processing and clearing up, and proved that metabolic rate and supercompensation evaluation could be achieved through EKG taken from Lead 1. 

(Just to clarify: For medical purposes such as heart disease diagnostics, all 12 leads are needed. But for the purpose of RocketBody--tracking metabolism, HR, and HRV--Lead 1 provides all the data needed for complete accuracy).

 In early 2017 Eugene Zolotariov joined the project as a COO and Partner. The team grew to 12 people, engaging sports medicine physicians and senior hardware and software engineers. This is when real prototype development kicked-off. 

Over the next several months, we perfected our EKG signal, two patent applications were submitted, we uploaded the first version of the RocketBody app to the App Store, and we began partnering with professional speed skating athletes and the biathlon federation. 

Late 2017 – we raised our pre-seed investment round with company valuation at $1 million USD. 

January 2018 – the fully functioning RocketBody prototype was released and we started collecting data from people for our Artificial Intelligence engine.

 Next we incorporated our US entity and participated in numerous industry events, like Wolves Summit in Warsaw, Poland. 

 The rest you can see for yourself. 

 After we finish taking pre-orders on Kickstarter, we will make the final preparations for serial production. This only concerns final industrial design and some of the latest and most advanced components for the wearable, and will bring it to production in September. 

Some of our team members are in US already, and Tim, Eugene and a few others are also moving to the Bay area in June. We’re looking forward to arranging a meeting with backers living in US who would like to come meet us in person and talk more about the future of our product!

Risks and challenges

From day one we’ve worked extremely hard to make sure our designs are created from first principles, ready for mass production.

Building physical products has certain risks and challenges associated with manufacturing and the supply chain logistics. We’ve made sure to minimize the risk of unexpected issues that may arise in these areas by making it a strict criterion to only work with tier-one manufacturers. Despite all our strategic contingencies, there’s always a chance of issues affecting timelines.

We foresee that delays may arise from the following:

Testing & Certifications: we’ve selected the world’s leading testing, quality assurance and certification company to help us bring to you a high-quality product. We’re committed to our philosophy of design, make and test. Delays may arise if our testing partners believe we can go the extra mile and set a gold standard.

Component shortages: Shortages in supply or unexpected issues in delivery to our manufacturers may result in delays. That’s why our component selection strategy has always factored in the ability to source mechanical and electronic components from reputable suppliers at a mass quantity from multiple sources.
