We JYMMiN'ize music.
Making it interactive.
For everyone.

JYMMiN is a new technology and a new training concept that merges musically expressive perfor-mance with physical exercise.

JYMMiN – where music meets motion.

JYMMiN through scientific validation maximizes effects of music during physical effort:
  • decreases pain and subjective effort during training
  • increases motivation, mood and fun
  • increases physiological muscle efficiency and performance (endurance, speed)
  • increases attentional and creative cognitive capacities
Establishing musical fitness culture through technology and scientific guidance.
JYMMiN” takes us back to our origins when music making and physical work were often intertwined. Music and physical exertion traditionally was strongly linked, both in traditional and in Western societies, in so-called work songs.
We have recreated this experience in an exercise system, which can be performed individually or in groups.
A novel form of musical performance, enabled by innovative music-making technology allows for the embodiment of musical creativity through exercise.
The benefits of musical-feedback-training in comparison to conventional motor learning are likely to be a consequence of musical expression drawing partly on motor processes that we also use for communication, which are not exclusively under deliberate control, but to substantial degree involve emotional motor control.
There is also scientific evidence that JYMMiN very effectively engages endorphin, a cognitive feel-good neuro-transmitter system strongly related to endurance.

The JYMMiN Plattform

Accessing the potential of music euphoria.

At JYMMiN, we aim to rediscover socio-culturally forgotten positive interaction effects between music and exertion to the benefit of modern society. Through the scientifically validated creative musical immersion technology we can show that JYMMiN training contributes to:
“Runner’s high” during any type of exercise & reduction in perceived exertion
Decrease in pain and anxiety. Increased self confidence.
Aesthetical positivity bias - enhanced musical enjoyment via JYMMiN.
We have built significant traction by JYMMiN'ize rehabilitation therapy devices. From there we will scale into Fitness, Music & Lifestyle consumer markets
The foundation to support different market applications is rooted in the solid scientifically validated technology platform, which allows flexible business model adaptation and B2B, B2C user customization.
Taking the diverse application and market adaptation into account, we are developing technology and business opportunities which enables our partners and customers to offer novel forms of therapy, training and music.
