If you’re trying to get back in shape and want to use every opportunity to do so, then we might have found a gadget to help with that, the Getupp Assist movement reminder.
Sitting for too long every day can lead to health issues such as obesity, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Now it’s time to break this inactive behaviour with the Getupp.
This kwaai gadget encourages you to get up from your chair more often.
All you have to do is clip Getupp Assist onto your desk and it will send regular reminders to get up and move and create new, healthy habits.
Also, Getupp Assist sends stand-up reminders in intervals you have predefined.
The integrated LED indicators work as guidance for when to stand and how long to stand for.
The device can even detect when you’re in your correct, ergonomic standing and sitting position. Once the 4 LED indicators are blue, you’ve reached your standing goal.
Best of all, the Getupp Assist transfers this data to your phone, so you can track your daily standing and sitting time.
