There are a growing number of products and devices designed to improve the health of those who are sedentary. Those who have desk jobs or have disabilities and must sit for long periods of time can face health risks. A few years ago, the Mayo Clinic began certifying products and services that facilitate, measure or incorporate the science of NEAT, a trademarked term which stands for the science of nonexercise activity thermogenesis.
Products like HOVR are gaining in popularity, as they help users unconsciously burn more calories to promote healthier living.
HOVR is a crowdfunded product invented by two friends, Ron Mochizuki MD, a Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation physician, and John Godoy, professional trainer.
