Inspired Motion LLC aims to help you by delivering “improving production efficiency and fun” to your daily desk work. The TOMBO, which was launched in Japan in 2016, is an innovative product that incorporates the concept that a bit of change can offer large benefits.
Japanese people who sit for the longest period of time among developed economies, are acutely aware of the health risks of a sedentary work environment. The Tombo has been attracting worldwide attention since prolonged “sitting” increases the risk of developing diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. According to a survey of 220,000 people conducted by the University of Sydney, Australia, those who sit for more than 11 hours a day have a 40% increased risk of an early death. The average daily sitting time for Japanese adults is 8-9 hours on average, which is the longest among the top 20 developed countries. The reality is that it is not easy to change the life centered on sitting at work or school, but if you have the TOMBO, you may be able to avoid the risk of illness due to such sedentary behavior.
It is natural for human beings to keep “moving” and moving is essential for maintaining health. When using the TOMBO, you can “walk while sitting”. By moving your feet unconsciously, the blood flow of the whole body is improved, and oxygen reaches the brain to improve concentration. In other words, with the Tombo you can expect to improve productive efficiency while maintaining health. In the US, the TOMBO has been adopted by corporations such as call centers, IT, advertising agencies and finance. It can be used by anyone who sits in a chair regardless of one’s age. The TOMBO supports One’s healthy, on a daily basis. Over 45,000 TOMBOs have been sold worldwide in 95 countries since introduction.
Our elderly family members think the Tombo is great fun! ! My mother especially uses it a lot. She spent all day in the room using it which reduced her suffering from edema. The purpose of our purchase was to see if I could eliminate it by moving it. Unlike the stand type where the feet have limited movement, the type which is directly attached to the desk made it possible for me to use many muscles. Although if one compares the price to a step exerciser, the price was quite high and is caused a problem , but not I think the Tombo attached directly to the desk which moves freely is perfect for my mother! !Amazon Japan Customer Client
I use it in a living room, and I feel that using it is not like training because it does not take a strong load like muscle training, but it reduces pain when sitting for a long time. This is similar to the feeling of unconsciously dangling a leg when sitting on a high place as a child. It is a strange feeling that you can move your legs in various directions like drawing a circle. I use it when writing, but I feel like working with chewing gum will increase my concentration, and I feel that my work efficiency will increase as the manual describes. Originally I do not feel edema, but there is certainly a feeling that blood circulation improves, so it is also recommended for women.I thought that the main body might move during use, but in fact the stand part is made solid enough to feel heavy, so it has a sense of stability and can be used without feeling wasteful stress It was.Amazon Japan Customer Client
I bought it from the official page, not from Amazon. Recommended by an acquaintance, I bought it for a mother with weak feet, but I tried using it before giving it to my mom. If you use it for an hour while sitting in a chair, you may feel muscle pain in your thighs but this is just my impression. I don't know if it will be enough for rehabilitation or lack of exercise. If the tension is not effective, you can see how you use your power to balance, so why not buy it for yourself sitting for a long time? I also think.Amazon Japan Customer Client
After using the Tombo, I feel like the feet that were cool were improved. I like being able to use it while watching TV, playing games, etc. I highly recommended for those who usually sit at desk work.Amazon Japan Customer Client
I use it under my work desk. I sit and work all the time, so I can exercise my lower body, which is very useful. My knees can move freely with it , so it is especially recommended for people with pain in the knee. I used to have knee pain, but now the pain is gone. I think it's thanks to the Tombo.Amazon Japan Customer Client
