The NewWayFitness Solution - The Physical Activity Rewards System
With the Physical Activity Reward System – P.A.R.S. - all family members get rewarded for their healthy activity. What’s unique is that, if the participant does not respond positively to the rewards, P.A.R.S. has the ability to turn off the flow of electricity to designated TV’s and video consoles, requiring physical activity to turn them back on.
How P.A.R.S. Works:
The P.A.R.S. software sends signals from the computer through the walls electrical wiring to control modules located between the electrical outlet and the viewing screen that keeps the electricity from flowing to the viewing screen in its normal state.
