The Moki Movement
We know that schools have a critical role to play in tackling the current childhood obesity and inactivity epidemic - but how? How can they successfully identify their least active pupils as well as monitor the activity of the school as a whole? How can they use actual data and insight to optimise a curriculum that best supports pupils to be more active?
Moki is a smart wristband and software application that measures physical activity and provides both on-screen and printable, user-friendly reports for schools and teachers. Moki has been designed from the ground up to be an intuitive, robust and super easy way to measure and motivate physical activity across an entire school.
Moki has been developed from a shared desire to give individuals the insight and tools to make a positive change to their lifestyle and health. The founders' backgrounds include; Technological Innovation, Academia, Big Data, Interactive Media and Data Protection.
