Rise & Recharge

26 February 2016

Baker IDI — with support from Vodafone Foundation Australia — has developed the free Rise & Recharge smartphone app aimed at getting Australians to spend less time sitting and encourage them to move regularly.

The app is based on scientific research that shows that regular movement can reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some forms of cancer.

Office workers, in particular, are encouraged to become 'chair-aware' and a 'Chair Boss' by downloading the free app which will track the time they spend sitting and set reminders to get up every 30 minutes. Every time a person gets up and moves more than 15 steps they earn credits and are on their way to becoming a 'Chair Boss'.

Download the free Rise & Recharge app for iPhone or Android today.
