Fun and intuitive tools for encouraging physical activity in children by linking the time spent in passive activity to amount of exercise.
Over 1/3 of children and youth in the US are obese or overweight. A major cause is the average 7.5 hours/day spent with passive entertainment devices. Obesity puts children at risk for chronic disease. ArtaTech's patent-pending tools encourage exercise and physical activity in children. A wristband measures physical activity and awards credits which are communicated to smart plugs and apps that control the time spent with passive entertainment.
