The game application is available for both Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. Based on the principle of isometric exercise, the game uses a connectede device called "Activ5" to perform physical exercises. It is a very compact, pocket-sixed strength training device. Isometric exercise is a type of strenth training, also known as "static strenght training" because they it is performed while maintaining a certain posture without contracting the muscles. Unlike the conventional image of sports, it si expected to be supported by many people in the near future as a "new type of familiar sports item" that allows people to casually improve their muscle strength while having fun anytime and anywhere.
