The Tombo has been extensively tested at the University of Illinois and Chicago’s world famous Mayo Clinic. The results of our published medical abstracts of stroop tests showed that when using the Tombo, cognitive skills were actually enhanced with Tombo compared to using a sitting desk. We think it’s due to the fact when using the Tombo, one is likely to breath more deeply, and normal sitting, and the brain will benefit from higher oxygen intake.
Using the Tombo at your desk not only helps increase your blood circulation, but it will likely improve your productivity. The unconscious swinging action of your feet on the Tombo synchronizes with your circadian rhythm. You will find that your feet will move unconsciously, thus causing the lower portion of your body to relive stress. You will find it very easy to say at the desk a long time. It’s likely that you will never want to sit at a desk, unless it has a Tombo.
Our activity tracker will record each step, send the data to your smart phone, calculate Steps, METS (metabolic equivalent unit of task), and your Caloric Burn. You will be able to see your Daily, Weekly, and Monthly progress. You will likely be surprised at how your work ethic, and discipline has increased because you are using the Tombo, while having reference data to show your improvement.
The human body wasn't designed to sit still. Our joints the bones and muscles are meant to move, which rejuvenates our body. The minimal or active movement with which you engage with Tombo aids you to bring fresh oxygenated blood to your lower limbs.
The 4 basic movemens you can enjoy, which combines stretching, one's feet, legs, ankle, and heels are the (1) Forward & Backward, (2) Left & Right, (3) Helicopter and (4) Marching movements. All can be done silently at one's desk. These are all calculated as Tombo Steps, and securly stored in smart phone application for your reference.
The Tombo is designed to make your day more comfortable, yet it is a serious piece of the health monotoring equipment. Our Application tracker will calculate your caloric burn throughout the day. Should you opt to participate in an active mindfulness program, you will be able to exchange the Tombo Steps for Tombo Points, which can pay for services on incentivized health insurance plans, or even a coffee at Starbucks.
The basic Tombo app comes with virtual walking venues from 200 global locations. Using the Tombo as a controller with various applications will enhance your work productivity and health mindfulness while improving blood circulation and feeling of comfort when you sit at your desk!
