Fran created Hotseat to pry herself out of her chair.
Now she wants to pry your employees out of theirs.

On the day Fran Melmed, founder and president of context, saw her activity tracker register a measly 452 steps, she knew something had to be done. Remembering Clocky—the relentless-by-design alarm clock that jumps from your nightstand and runs away, dragging you out of bed in order to turn the darn thing off—she determined she needed a Clocky for her seat. So she built it.

Hotseat is a product of context, a change management and communication consulting firm that specializes in workplace wellness. context worked with the talented folks at MadPow on the design of this website and on Hotseat itself.
