Activbody's ActivSports Platform enables professional, college, high
school, and youth sports teams to measure, quantify, and improve muscle
function for isometric and traditional gym-based exercises.
Additionally, ActivSports measures left/right strength symmetry, tests
endurance of specific muscle groups, and measures peak muscle force over
time. The new ActivSports Platform also enables the team's athletic
training staff to objectively measure muscle function to understand when
a player is ready to move on to the next phase of rehab. The Steelers
are the first professional sports team to have access to the ActivSports

"Our new ActivSports Platform is designed to measure and track muscle
strength performance to help teams and athletes gain a competitive
edge," said Dan Stevenson, chief executive officer of Activbody. "Our
partnership with the Steelers helps fulfill Activbody's mission to
deliver efficient, effective and motivating technology-driven solutions
to enhance fitness and health for everyone."

"Before we discovered ActivSports, measuring precise strength levels,
setting specific intensity targets, and maximizing muscle recruitment
for gym and isometric exercises was difficult and time consuming, and in
many cases impossible," said Garrett Giemont, strength and conditioning
coordinator for the Pittsburgh Steelers. "Our partnership with Activbody
opens new doors in achieving and monitoring optimum muscle performance
and prescribing and tracking rehabilitation to help keep our athletes on
the field."

Under the four-year pact, the Steelers strength and conditioning
coaching staff will serve as an Activbody BETA Partner to test and
provide professional feedback regarding new Activbody health and fitness
devices, accessories and software releases.

"The Pittsburgh Steelers adoption of ActivSports is a great validator
and Activbody is proud to be part of such an iconic franchise," said
Seth Cummings, chief marketing officer of Activbody. "We're excited to
be a Steelers Training Partner and look forward to expanding ActivSports
to help teams and athletes of all ages reach their peak performance
