4Mvideo is a video-based exercise system where you can go on 'virtual' bike tours with family and friends. The system is designed for seniors who want to complement other activities with indoor bicycle exercise. 4Mvideo is easy to use. It consists of a motion sensor, a library of cycling videos and an app for tablet computers. The video library contains videos from country side and urban areas in Denmark that all 4Mvideo users can exercise to. Cycling videos can also be filmed by friends and family and mixed with, for example, video greetings from children and grandchildren. 4Mvideo can make exercise fun, more social and extra motivating for seniors who wants to exercise indoors.
4Mvideo app works with a wireless cadence sensor. The sensor, which is mounted on the bicycle pedal, sends bicycle’s activity information to the 4Mvideo app. The video starts, stops and plays according to the pedal’s motion. The system does not require much space when used with a sofa bike or standard exercise bike. It can be used in your own home and it can also be brought to gym.

4Mvideo continuously makes new cycling videos available for download from the video library. And videos can even be filmed by friends and family. 4Mvideo will publish the cycling videos for personal or public user after having processed video material, correcting for shake and other quality issues.
Cycling videos are downloaded from the video library and added directly to the 4Mvideo app. Internet connection is only required during download and ride videos can be enjoyed without an internet connection.
