“StandUp!” is an ergonomic workplace mat that distributes the load on the feet, so that you have the energy to stand up at work and use your standing desk. Standing up is actually comparable with jogging, and compare is precisely what our “StandUp!” app does. How many more calories have been burned off while you were standing? How much jogging does it correspond to? You can share your results on Facebook and challenge your friends.
This is how it works.
The body's energy expenditure is dependent on physical activity, but also on body weight and gender, and that's what you should enter first under settings. You can then enter how long you have been standing up whenever you want and have the time converted to the number of additional kCal you have burned off while standing, and how many km of jogging it corresponds to. The results are based on MET (Metabolic unit), which calculates consumption of kCal per hour and kilo of body weight.
