Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look
at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to
help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or
other special needs!
Have you ever wished you could remain active while sitting?
The HOVR is a product that allows you to do just that!
The HOVR, spelled H-O-V-R, is essentially a device that
encourages multi-directional leg movement.
According to the HOVR website, the device "produces the
closest activity to walking while remaining seated with the added
benefit of not being mentally distracting." Studies have
shown the device to aid in:
- Cognitive productivity
- Burning calories
- ADHD, as it allows individuals to quietly fidget to focus
- And much more!
The device can be mounted directly to your work desk if your
desk is at least 1" thick. Or, if you'd like to take it to
work and home, it's also available as a portable stand.
There's far too much to discuss about the HOVR in this
podcast, so be sure to visit HOVR.pro for more
