It’s no secret that sitting at a desk all day is bad for you, and slouching at said desk is even worse. While not everyone can get a standing desk, there are ways to improve your posture, like the collection of tools designed Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Mirjam de Bruijn. Called Asana, these five tools are meant to help people stretch and keep the blood-flowing.

These include a rocking footrest, a large rubber band to stretch the arms, twin weights for wrist exercises, a rubber sitting cushion and a rounded stick to roll your wrists over to get blood flowing. The products are designed to help people but also to look good, as de Bruijn writes on her website: “The tools are designed to look inviting and in tune with a modern aesthetic, as opposed to current offerings, which are more like medical aids than something you want to be seen using.”

You can see these devices in action in the video below.
