Issues such as obesity, high blood pressure, and heart disease have been correlated with a sedentary lifestyle. Additionally, many contemporary office jobs consist of deskwork on a computer for almost the entire workday. This can result in back and neck issues. The goal of this project is to limit the harmful effects of sitting for extended periods of time by making an active lifestyle easy and convenient. The Wellness Companion is a portable treadmill that is easy to transport and use in a variety of environments, such as at the library, in school, or at the office.
