Aim

Are you a female over the age of 50 who regularly takes part in sports or physical activities?

MISFIT (Maximising Inclusiveness in Sports through Female-centric Innovation and Technology) is a joint collaboration project between KYMIRAIda Sports and VOICE aimed at empowering women to participate in sports and remain active as they age, without fear of pain or injuries. 

The project will build on KYMIRA's award-winning sports apparel solutions, which will be adapted for older females. Alongside this, it will provide population-level insights into injury types and optimum exercise regimes as women get older. MISFIT will translate these learnings to provide a sports advisory service to users. In addition to these innovations, award-winning sports footwear developer Ida Sports will use the service to inform the design of a new range of sports footwear to support women to continue in sport participation as they age.


MISFIT is innovative in making biomechanics monitoring affordable and accessible to a critically underserviced and overlooked market, narrowing the gap in accessibility between the richest and poorest and providing a step change over existing activity monitors which focus on simple physiological health parameters (heart rate and step count).

If you are interested in joining further conversations and activities related to this project, you can join the VOICE MISFIT group to keep up to date.
