A Place to Play and Exercise Together

Building a future where play and exercise are inclusive and fun for people of all abilities

iGYM is an augmented reality system for inclusive play and exercise.

It is designed for school and community-based sport or recreation facilities seeking to provide novel and accessible ways for people with motor disabilities and their non-disabled peers to play and exercise together.


We are an interdisciplinary team of designers, engineers, and human-computer interaction researchers at the University of Michigan.
