THE PROBLEM 

"In the modern workplace, sitting is unavoidable. Some chairs make it pleasant, but none can stop the harm of insufficient movement."

THE SOLUTION    
HEALTH GUARD™ offers a unique and easy way to reverse the battle:

  • Improves blood circulation and metabolism
  • Prevents ailments caused by motionless sitting
  • Increases the regeneration of synovial fluid in joints

     Soon...Our new smartphone app!

“When you sit, your large muscles are relaxed, and enzyme activity drops by 90% to 95%, leaving fat to camp out in the bloodstream. Within a couple hours of sitting, healthy cholesterol plummets by 20%”


Obesity, diabetes, deep veins clots…

Our muscles crave exercise, but boss’s frowns or heavy workload (at office) and addiction to computer games or to social networks (at home) make even short exercise all but a wish.

But health activity (gym, walking) will help. Right? WRONG! Leading scientists say it bluntly: Sitting is the new smokingRecent studies show: Just like in case of smoking, regular workouts in leisure time do not compensate for the damage caused by motionless sitting.

And, unlike smoking, we cannot quit sitting at the modern workplace. HEALTH GUARD™ is an ideal sitting aid because it activates large leg muscles without hindering your desk tasks.

While HEALTH GUARD™ induces prolonged slow leg movements, it:

  • Does not distract your attention from work;
  • Leaves the upper body stable for error-less typing and mousing;
  • Enables adjusting the mechanical resistance to each individual;
  • Needs no connection to AC or to computer;
  • Enables wireless monitoring of the time of muscle flexion.
