More about us

It’s the era of inactivity. Our lives have been designed in a way that movement is no longer a necessity. Technological solutions may seem nice, but they are mostly unhealthy. Why can’t technology be convenient and healthy at the same time? We want to counteract the trend of inactivity by creating healthier technological solutions for the 21st century society.
