Pearson R-Value: 0.560
The results for the comparison between the Spree temperature and the gold standard temperature show that there is no significant difference in these temperatures as the T-Test value is less than 0.1. The reason for this is because the Spree headband does not show the exact temperature, only colors that represent on single temperature, and there are only four colors. This lack of accurate, numerical temperature is a limitation of the Spree headband and could be improved by improving the thermometer aspect.

Target Population and Need
Our target population is the "average Joe." The average American spends ten hours per day working and caring for children or others. Only 29% of American adults get the CDC recommended amount of muscle strengthening exercise per week. FEMS technology would help strengthen the muscles of average adults who do not have the time or energy to exercise as much as recommended.
This device has the shell of a morphsuit with "smart skin" technology wired throughout the suit. It delivers precision amounts of electric stimulation to muscle groups throughout the body to contract muscles and stimulate muscle growth.
Our statistics our taken from theoretical measurements of 50 participants doing the CDC suggested cardiovascular and muscular exercise for 6 months and 50 participants doing the recommended cardiovascular exercise and wearing the FEMS suit for 30 minutes, 3 times per week for 6 months. Participant lean body mass composition is measured every week and progress is recorded. T-test:7.49585E-06 Pearson's R value:0.984846026
The FEMS technology results in slightly higher lean muscle gain than regular exercise.
