In conclusion, the HOVR could have widespread effect on classroom and workplace performance for the entire population, not just the target demographic. Benefits of the HOVR include portability, slim profile, affordability, and its multi-functionality. Users can silently bounce, swivel side-to-side, up and down, etc. in a non-disruptive way. This is ideal for classrooms and the workplace. Future directions may include conducting studies that assess if using a HOVR would increase attention and focus in children/adults with ADD/ADHD in sedentary environments. By increasing knowledge of ADHD and other learning disorders, we may be able to assist families, psychologists and neuroscientists on developing unique and innovative personalized treatments for adults and children.

Don’t Stop the Movement–
A senior South side elementary school principal, Dr. Sufurat Giwa, asked us to let her pupils use our early prototype of HOVR two years ago. She had a “hunch” that it would appeal to children who are not able to get as much physical activity as she believed was natural and necessary.
She had the prescience that comes from having observed thousands of children in class. We have seen in her school, the practical application of HOVR. In developing the HOVR we felt that our “market” was the office workplace and did not consider schools. However, Pershing Magnet Elementary School became our first prototype laboratory. Since then we have sold to many schools and we are happy to be able to tell of direct success in the classroom.
