When it comes to health problems related to sedentary lifestyles, “the problem is the absence of movement rather than sitting.”1 The HOVR creates non-distracting, unconscious movement that tackles many health challenges, all while users remain seated. Read on to discover more HOVR pluses…
A “non-workout” that burns big calories. The Mayo Clinic released a study2 confirming the HOVR’s ability to increase calorie expenditure by 20% — that’s better than either sitting or standing. Certified NEAT3 in 2016, the HOVR can also help support sustainable weight loss.
A diabetic’s dream may come true. Research at the University of Missouri, Department of Kinesiology4 is verifying HOVR’s effectiveness with blood sugar control. With more than 50% of the U.S. adult population either diabetic or pre-diabetic, this is a game-changing potentiality.
An easy way to improve brain function. Using the HOVR continually doesn’t reduce cognitive productivity5. In fact, the HOVR might actually improve cognitive productivity by producing unconscious movement.
A heart-healthy boost, without even standing up. It looks like HOVR may be giving blood clots, swelling, and other heart-related problems the heave-ho. Recent tests at Tokai University6 have demonstrated HOVR’s positive impact on blood circulation.
The HOVR is a godsend for any task requiring focus, concentration, and cooperation. In short, everything education. Several schools in the U.S. and Canada are already putting this benefit to the test with promising results7. Regular students as well as those with ADD/ADHD, “fidgeters,” and hyperkinetic learners may all benefit from the HOVR’s unconscious movement.
