Physical Strength: A New Frontier in Human Performance

Scheduled for: September 13th, 2022, 10:00 am PT / Category: Interviews

If you ask someone how strong they are, it's almost a certainty that they reference a squat or bench press. Why, who cares, and what's missing from that answer? Multi billion dollar industries have been created around every pillar of human performance, except for physical strength. Why is that and how Proteus is becoming the MRI for physical strength.

Sam Miller is the Founder and CEO of Proteus Motion based in Brooklyn, NY. Sam founded Proteus after drawing inspiration from his own childhood sports rehab experiences and a mechanical prototype developed at MIT by his father, Larry, in the early 1990’s.

Sam’s interest in the emerging trends of health data led him to focus on the incredible opportunity to measure physical strength beyond the same basic bench press and squat movements that have existed for decades. Sam started by building software around a core hardware concept from his father’s original hardware prototype. Today Proteus® Motion’s patented technology is the only way to measure strength and power for 100% of human movements for the first time ever. Proteus® software guides users through 4-minute physical assessments which deliver unprecedented performance insights, while also providing a resistance training experience that is 2X more effective than free weights and cables. Proteus is an entirely new standard for personalized fitness and physical rehabilitation.

Proteus Motion’s products are a centerpiece of sports performance, physical therapy, and commercial gym settings and have been adopted by some of the most renowned athletes, trainers, and institutions in the world.
