Sitting is killing us. This can help.

Steppa creates small sprints of activity throughout your day, providing the benefits of changing posture frequently. The combination insole and desktop device is designed to transform activity tracking into an engaging, social experience. The insole identifies a broad range of movements from sitting posture to standing and motion. The desktop device acts as a constant interactive reminder that mirrors your activity state, providing positive feedback and recognition of improvement.
