"Isa - trainer" provides the first low-threshold access to exercise programs based on sports science for employees with acute complaints or as a preventative measure.
An employee sits at his desk with a face full of jokes, holding his back because of back pain.
Everyone knows it - nobody becomes active

Back pain is the single most common diagnosis

Around 2/3 of employees suffer frequently or occasionally from back or neck pain.

The most common causes are desk work with poor ergonomics & too little movement or weak muscles. Despite the high prevalence, only 15% take sick leave. A high number of unreported cases continue to work with less concentration and less resilience. Very few people have the time to take the usual route of attending time-consuming exercise courses at health centers or physiotherapists.

Time-saving & work-friendly

«Isa – trainer» finally creates perspectives for those affected.

Low-threshold course programs for everyday working life

Employees can address their respective complaints at work through various courses. In 3 daily sessions with 3 exercises each, all causes are specifically addressed within two weeks. 

The sessions follow a health science treatment approach and build on each other. They are suitable for beginners and only take a few minutes a day. 

Carried out once a year, "Isa - trainer" keeps the spine and muscles fit and prevents further complaints - without any additional time expenditure.  

An employee stands in front of her desk, on which there is a laptop, decoration, water, fruit and an Isa. A movement exercise is played on the Isa and the young woman imitates this movement exercise. She has one arm above her head and bends down to one side.

Still Logo
An impressively effective tool for significantly more ergonomics at VDU workstations. When fully concentrating on the activity, it is a real help when the attention to one's own sitting posture is taken over by the Isa. This is clearly matched by the positive feedback from our employees. A valuable enrichment!

Frequently asked questions

Why you should do movement exercises at work

It is important to carry out regular exercise at work to keep the body fit and healthy. This measure is one of the workplace health promotion. Many people spend the majority of their day sitting down, which can lead to tension and poor posture. You can counteract this by specifically mobilising and strengthening different parts of the body such as the legs, feet, hands, arms, back and neck. Breaks in movement serve to promote coordination and balance and release tension in the body. 

It is important to integrate movement exercises into your daily routine, especially if you have to work sitting in an unergonomic chair for long periods of time. The lack of movement is very likely to lead to back and neck problems. This in turn can lead to unproductivity, a drop in performance and even psychological problems. problems or the inability to work. By regularly stretching and strengthening your muscles, you can counteract fatigue, poor posture and discomfort. 

If you already suffer from back or neck problems, targeted movement exercises in the form of a course programme will help to minimise the symptoms.

Why do we find exercise so difficult?

Research shows that office workers spend up to 7 hours a day sitting. However, the human body is not made for this. According to a survey by MySports and YouGov Germany, 38% of participants don't exercise because they don't have time due to overtime, family or long commutes. A further 37% stated that they are exhausted after work and 45% lack the motivation to exercise.
