The ActivBody Activ5 is a small device that accurately measures pressure, allowing people to break up their sedentary days with short and fun exercises. The cellphone-sized gadget connects to a smartphone app and coaches users through five-minute workouts five times a day, helping people to improve their strength and precision without having to spend hours in the gym.

Most people spend the majority of their days sitting, and this excessive sitting can lead to health problems over time. The ActivBody Activ5 is designed to be discreet and easy to use -- even while sitting. The device and app have over 100 low-impact workouts, and the system is specifically designed to make those workouts as fun and engaging as possible for the short time that users do them. It shows data about improvements and sets goals for future workouts, gamifying the workout process.
