Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Apr 14, 2017

231-04-14-17 HOVR
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:
  1. Cognitive productivity
  2. Burning calories
  3. ADHD, as it allows individuals to quietly fidget to focus
  4. 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 for more information.
