An app to encourage a healthier balance between sitting and being active.

Rise & Recharge was developed by Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute — with support from Vodafone Foundation Australia — after our research demonstrated the link between sedentary behaviour and the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer.

On average, adults sit for about nine hours each day, and much of this time is continuous sitting with little movement. This lack of movement affects the way our bodies convert food into energy leading to unhealthy levels of blood glucose, insulin and blood fat. Research also shows that doing regular exercise may not fully protect against the health risks of long periods of continuous sitting.

Use Rise & Recharge to track the time you spend sitting and how often you get up. Move at least once in a 30-minute period and add up your periods of movement to achieve your star rating for the day. Aim for the ultimate of achieving a 5-star day!

To help you achieve a 5-star day customise your app reminders to receive regular alerts to get up and move.

Please note
This app uses the accelerometer built into your phone. Some Android models do not have a built-in accelerometer, so an external motion tracker will be required.
