Steppa - knows how to keep you moving.

Sitting for long periods increases the risk of a host of problems including obesity, heart disease, diabetes, metabolic disorder and even some cancers. Yet we are sitting more often than ever.

Steppa creates small sprints of activity throughout your day, providing you with the benefits of changing posture frequently. The insole and desktop device connected through your phone re-imagines how activity tracking can be engaging, social and fun by recognising your movements, not simply an alarm that shames you when you don’t reach your goals of 10,000 steps a day.

The insole identifies a broad range of movements from bad sitting posture, to standing, to certain forms of exercise. The desktop device acts as a constant interactive visual reminder, which mirrors your activity state, providing positive feedback and recognition of improvement for all to see.
