This research aimed to develop a device that can calculate the number of steps and the corresponding distance covered, of the user without connecting a wire that causes entanglements whenever the user would take a step. This study sought to address the following issues: (a) the ability of the device to count the steps accurately, (b) the speed of data transfer, and (c) the number of users the device can accommodate.

Experimental development and descriptive method were used in the completion of this particular study. Twenty one purposively selected evaluators participated in the study.

Findings revealed that the equipment was able to counts steps accurately and the speed of data transfer was satisfactory yet the evaluators suggested that making the device smaller would make it better.
