BionicGym Overview


Key Points


BionicGym an Irish company, was established in 2015 following almost two decades of research carried out by Dr. Louis Crowe.


Bionic Gym has been subject to numerous scientific studies supported by European Space Agency, Enterprise Ireland, Bio-Medical Research Ltd, Hull University (UK), and University College Dublin (Ireland).


An Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign opened on November 2016, surpassed its $20,000 fundraising goal within the first 24 hours. To date, the invention has been backed on Indiegogo by 7,147 people from over 95 countries, raising more than U.S. $3 million.


Beta Testing is underway! 40 people in Europe including Dr. Louis and his team of 2 based in Dublin, Ireland are now using BionicGym. Besta Testers are documenting their journeys and providing feedback on a private Facebook group for Indiegogo backers and also on the public Facebook Group - BionicGym Community.

Press Release CES 2019


Due to the huge success of the crowdfunding campaign, Indiegogo has invited BionicGym to join them at CES January 2019 in Las Vegas, to showcase BionicGym in action.


BionicGym is a wearable neuro-stimulator for intense aerobic workouts and easy calorie-burning, that works by reproducing the calorie burning effects of shivering within the muscles, and simulates the benefits and effects of running a marathon, or engaging in strenuous aerobic exercise. So a user can actually get a work-out while watching TV at night, or while sitting at their desk during the day. The device has been tested and scientifically proven to be effective. Dr. Louis Crowe states, “I've even trained for a marathon - with no running, and no pounding the joints."
