Stappone scans your entire body through your feet, recognises problems with posture and movement, and helps you optimise your well-being with cutting-edge methods to make the most of what modern tech has to offer your body.
Developed in Austria by health experts, leading universities, and skilled programmers, stappone uses a dozen state-of-the-art textile sensors to draw a complete digital map of your body and allows you not only to understand your physical habits but improve them as well.
Exclusive Product Upgrade Policy for Kickstarter Backers Only

We are very confident about the persistence of stappone and therefore we added a warranty on the insole’s functionality for one year after delivery.
stappone constructs a multidimensional view of your foot and body. The longer you use it, the more precise it becomes. Try it.
Sometimes the key to feeling healthier and more energised during the day is a small change in your posture or movement. For example, sitting too long (especially with bad posture) may lead to pinched nerves and increased fatigue. stappone recognises these bad posture habits and helps you correct them:
- Back pain
- Foot and neck pain
- Restricted movement
- Foot deformities
- Misalignment of the spine
- Musculoskeletal weakness
stappone’s smart textile insole has GPS sensors, accelerometers, and location trackers that collect immense amounts of information:
- Calorie Burn
- Skeletal Deformities (yes, through your feet!)
- Posture Activity - running, walking, sitting, riding a bike - even taking the elevator
"Regular and long-term gait tracking contributes to creating a coherent data profile of activities and in this context health. This helps both in the prevention of inappropriate biomechanical stress as well as the diagnosis of abnormalities".
"The stappone insole with its accurate and long enduring textile sensors is a leading high-tech innovation. It shows that our region Vorarlberg is on the right track to becoming the textile silicon valley. We are proud to call stAPPtronics GmbH a valued member of our platform".
"Physical activity is considered a highly effective measure against several kinds of diseases. You do not need to achieve top athletic performance to prevent cardiovascular diseases. It’s the small things that help best - even the daily walk to the office has an effective preventive function."
stappone’s app takes the incredible amount of information that is recorded by the insole and translates it into an interface that’s understandable, helpful, and easy-to-use.
We have developed stappone primarily to prevent pain, injuries and common diseases. Furthermore, your stappBuddy will let you know if there might be possible problems that maybe a doctor should take a look at. The app also allows you to share your data, such as gait patterns, exercise activities, etc. for a period of your choosing with your doctor. By providing your doctor with better data for his diagnosis, it will allow for a more accurate diagnosis and may therefore recommend a more targeted treatment.
Simply being told you haven’t moved enough today is no help.
stappone’s virtual support system recognizes the right time to suggest precise advice, based on your unique body blueprint, on how to promote your posture and health. No pressure to perform, just useful information at the right time. stappone measures your progress and motivates you by granting Activity Points for the different forms of activity you perform throughout the day.
Not everyone has to know that you’re counting steps or monitoring your health. stappone does everything from within your shoes, so you have full discretion.
We care about your privacy. The information collected by stappone stays yours and only yours, and will never be traded, for any reason unless explicitly approved by you.
We tested stappone from every possible angle to ensure that it is safe to use, and complies with all the strictest quality-control standards, so you can enjoy your stappone without worrying about safety issues.
Unlike most fitness trackers, stappone doesn’t have to be connected to your phone in order to work. Need some privacy? Your phone died in the middle of a week-long hike in the woods? No worries. The insoles will continue recording your performance. Once you reconnect with your phone, stappone will sync everything so you don’t lose anything. stappone can even continue tracking your location without draining your phones battery and data plan.
Every package comes with two wireless charges which can work with your phone or tablet too. To charge your insoles, simply place stappone’s wireless chargers on your insoles. Simple as that.
The insole represents the ultimate Bio-Feedback experience:
- Cork Base: Form-Stable Design - instead of using the usual polyethylene, stappone’s base is made of high-quality cork; besides being an ecology friendly material, it is also both form-stable and cushioning, so it keeps its form under pressure of up to 1.25 tons and still remains comfortable and flexible. The cork base also houses and protects stappone’s processing center.
- Textile sensors - stappone’s middle layer collects information about your posture, distribution of weight, and movement, in any situation (and we mean any situation). It can detect the smallest shifts in weight and limitations in movement.
- CoolMax® cover - The top layer is made of high-quality CoolMax® fabric, which is both super-comfortable and conductive. It is the perfect surface to read your unique footprint.

During a lunch together with his friend physicist Philip, Peter came up with the idea of a smart insole that would track movement and help the user lead a more active life and correct posture and movement problems without additional time and pressure to perform. The expert knowledge of the foot was found in the renowned podiatrist Sylvia Strell. Here is the full team:
