aimsteady: fast facts
PRACTICE WITH PURPOSE

AimSteady is an automated shooting coach that uses a mobile-connected, ring-based platform. Our advanced sensors package is miniaturized to be worn directly on the learner’s finger, wirelessly providing comprehensive data.

It is designed to pick up on the subtle movement errors that even a great handgun instructor cannot see. The ring monitors the users movements, analyzing movement errors, grip stability and recovery time, giving the user live audible feedback without them having to look away from their sights.

Users can resize the ring with our provided ring inserts (utility patent pending on this) and we also want to emphasize that our hardware is not locked to this one application, and can scale into any field.

the deliberate practice problem
PRACTICE WITH PURPOSE

There’s a common aphorism that if you do something for 10,000 hours, you can master it. In handgun marksmanship they say you need to fire 10,000 rounds to become a master marksman. So why do we send new pistol users out on their own after only 1 to 3 hours of in-person training? We tell them to shoot every day, and expect them to just start improving.

People, of course, are fallible. An afternoon’s gun safety and marksmanship training will be washed from memory by the end of the week if lessons aren’t reinforced on as frequent a schedule as possible. People who handle guns need to make regular training a priority.

Human instruction is expensive, however, as are practice rounds, and so most of the pistol-carrying populace lets training take a back seat. People often buy a gun and then don’t train because shooting solo at the range is boring, repetitive, and not engaging.

This approach does not benefit the average person. Especially not new pistol users being exposed to these powerful weapons for the first time. Experts train consistently, regularly, over a period of many years, to properly maintain proficiency.

the aimsteady solution
PRACTICE WITH PURPOSE

AimSteady was designed by Special Forces and competitive shooters specifically to improve the time to train a proficient handgun marksman. It replaces a barking drill sergeant with a ring-worn sensors package and data analytics to tailor training to the specific user needs.

By playing the “second man” during your solo practice sessions, our App monitors various aspects of your training routine, and derives important, actionable insights that you can apply in real time, to see immediate results.

With AimSteady, every round you fire, and every minute you spend training, will be improving your skills to make your shooting better when it really counts. Practice shouldn’t be plinking. Practice is about perfecting precision.

OOur unique sensors matrix and algorithms is the only solution on the market capable of measuring that precision, seeing where you personally fall away from it, and pointing you in the correct direction back along the path to perfection with implementation-ready improvement tips.

how it works
PRACTICE WITH PURPOSE

AimSteady captures 3D-motion in space before, during, and after each shot, and collects movement errors, shot statistics, grip stability, and recovery time on your phone.

Immediate audio feedback is generated for each shot in real-time, technique is broken down for post-practice review, and shot statistics are stored to allow trend analysis over time.

AimSteady operates in 3 Main Modes:
