Sedentary lifestyle is a major health issue, affecting significant proportion of the population. Nature Steps is the most aesthetic, engaging and effective way to stay active. The reflexology-tiles are made from variety of natural materials to stimulate your barefoot, incentivizing movement with different colors, textures and temperatures. Internal airbags create a walking-like motion for user to subconsciously move or find balance, increasing core muscle activity and lower body motion. Together, Nature Steps deliver continuous physical and sensorial stimulation to move, providing a bases for constant motion preventing any static postures. Nature Steps motion flooring provides a great alternative to prolonged sitting and static standing in offices and homes.
