The Hovr is an innovative footrest, developed as part of a collaboration with the University of Illinois and the Mayo Clinic, that is designed to encourage people to move their legs under their desk without it interfering with their work.

The contraption features a strap and a pair of disks, with users able to adjust the length and distance. Users can their place their feet on the footrest and move them back and forth.

People who work in offices spend a hugely disproportionate amount of their time sitting at desks, something which is very harmful to their health. Now however, thanks to the Hovr footrest, 9-to-5 workers can make use of an innovative free-hanging footrest that provokes and tempts them into moving their legs, getting their blood circulation going and helping to boost their physical and mental health.
