Froach the frog is the testimonial of a new Sedus’s plea for the break and against sedentary. The goal is personal wellbeing, consistently with the corporate philosophy of the German company. The tool is an innovative, interactive web-based App for active and health mini-breaks at the workplace, in the break room or during your free time.
The App is available for free for the first three WOW!’s followers. Ask Froach App here!
Have you experienced backache, back trouble, fatigue, wrist, shoulder and arm trouble, stress, lack of concentration, overuse of your eyes?
These are the typical symptoms caused by prolonged siting, lack of breaks, unilateral movements or stress conditions; the consequence is absenteism with a huge social cost: according to Booz & Company, it costs an average of 3,591 euro per employee a year!
On the other hand, attending employees show up for work but are not 100% productive.
Nonstop requirements, especially in case of mentally and phisically stressful work situations, breaks are cancelled frequently. Postponement of recovery leads to a disproportionate increase in exhaustion.
Effective mini-breaks are an important preventive building block in workplace health promotion and increase productivity.
Sedus is conscious that a good chair is not enough to solve the problem of physical inactivity, even if it is dynamic, ergonomic and comfortable as those of a century the company has produced.
From these considerations comes the “plea for the break” and the idea of a fun, interactive, web-based App to offer to their employees.
The App offers a package of 12 exercises, new every month, customised, mobile on the go or during working time.
Froach frog interfaces with the user, monitors the individual performances and, in case of too long immobility, with a friendly message prompts you to take a break.Ask Froach App to firstname.lastname@example.org
