HUR's Smart Card system represents the most advanced technology in its field. HUR's Smart Card equipment allows for an easy and individualised workout for all kinds of users. The heart of the machine is the Smart Card, whose data is used by the system to automate the entire training session. Just insert the card into the machine and the system will set the resistance automatically, provide guidance where necessary and record the performance from each session. The user also obtains feedback on the success of the workout, which further enhances the efficiency of training.
HUR┤s Managing Director Mr. Mats Manderbacka received the Diploma from the Employment and Economic Development Centre and a Plate from the National Board of Patents and Registration of Finland on Saturday the 15th of November. The national Prizes will be presented at the main Innofinland awards ceremony on 16th of December.
This was not the first time when HUR wins the regional prize. The last time was 2004, when HUR got an honourable mention because of the Wheelchair Easy Access Line machines.
