Smart stretching mat

Solelp combines stretching with gaming, giving it a sense of accomplishment through missions and points, and is entertaining through visual and sound elements. Played with the bar, mat, handles, and app, Solelp helps anyone to enjoy stretching as an exciting everyday activity.


Stretching is crucial,
but ‘boring and unrewarding’.

Static and boring
No immediate reward

A lot of people today experience a painful back or neck due to bad posture, and we all understand that stretching regularly is essential for good posture. However, many people usually had difficulty finding stimulation to stretch on a daily basis. Although the current process of stretching can be quite demanding in time and preparation, it doesn't give an instant reward or joy like other exercises. To motivate stretching, there must be an added sense of achievement and entertainment that people can feel right away.


Game-like stretching experience.

Solelp combines stretching with gaming, giving a sense of accomplishment through missions, points, and visual/sound elements.
Played with the bar, mat, handles, and app, Solelp helps enjoy stretching as an exciting everyday activity.

Posture tracking
and interactive feedback

With the lidar sensors and camera on the bar, Solelp can scan the accuracy of the user’s posture. Based on this analysis, Solelp gives live feedback so that the experience is enhanced to be more active and helpful.

Touchpoints on mat
like arcade games

The LED screen easily guides the placement of hands and feet with touchpoints, and also shows simple indications to help the game such as the remaining time and earned points.

Located on the edges of the bar, the speakers and lights allow the users to have even more fun and interactive experience.
The music and audible feedback allow accurate posture correction, while also making it joyful.

Experience expanded
beyond the mat

The handles are separable from the bar, in an easy-grip size, emitting different colors of light when enjoying the game. With the handles, the whole experience is pushed even further as an enjoyable game, by allowing more dynamic posture checking.

The handles enable even more various stretching poses during the game, by using stretching bands stored inside, and giving feedback through haptic and audible reactions.

App for more inspiration

To enhance the whole game experience, the app provides a list of routines, music, and a guide for stretching, as well as the rewards and personal missions to keep the users motivated. The overall design continues to convey the fun and energetic mood of the product.
