I have always been a person of high energy and find it very difficult to sit still for long periods of time. This irritation of sedentary sitting came to a breaking point when I was stuck in holiday traffic, while in the passenger seat of my friend’s car I created the first mock-up of what would become the PediGlide. Over two years and countless iterations, we are very proud to bring the PediGlide to life.

After my long car ride, I researched how a sedentary lifestyle impacted your health and was horrified with what I found. The National Cancer Institute found that sedentary sitting is associated with:

  • 24% increased risk of colon cancer
  • 32% increased risk of endometrial cancer
  • 21% increased risk of lung cancer. 

The Mayo Clinic reinforced the concerns of sedentary sitting when they found that those who sat for long periods of time had a 125% increased risk of events associated with cardiovascular disease, such as chest pain or heart attack. 

A survey by CareerBuilder found that the number one cause of office weight gain is workers sitting still at their desks for far too long. Further, only 25% of people get the recommended amount of daily exercise to live a healthy lifestyle.  

Adding all of these factors together it becomes clear that sedentary sitting is a disease that is damaging millions of people every year.

The PediGlide measures 14 inches long by 14 inches wide by 2.5 inches high. when being used flat on the ground and weighs just under 7 lbs. (3.17 kg) with the ability to fold in half for easy carrying and packing.

The PediGlide uses two independent moving foot platforms that are connected to a solid base plate. The platforms glide smoothly back and forth on fixed tracks. Strategically placed grip pads are located under the base plate to ensure the PediGlide does not slip while being used on any floor surface.

To ensure maximum muscle engagement there are industrial strength resistance bands connected between the foot pads and the base.

The concept of the PediGlide is designed to be very simple so that it fits nearly everywhere and gives the user a chance to keep their legs active while sitting. However, similar products have proved to be impractical in many situations. Current options:

  • Do not fit under many desks
  • Are not easily transportable
  • Often require corporate approval if being used at work
  • Can cost thousands of dollars. 

The PediGlide is much lighter, 2 – 30 times more affordable, and its versatility allows it to be used practically anywhere; at the office, in your home, in a car, on an airplane.
