The armchair turned fitness trainer

The armchair turned fitness trainer | Indoor Rowing | Scoop.it

Researchers have created a prototype armchair designed to take care of the elderly by giving them health and fitness advice ... and even a workout.

 

Developed at the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS) in Germany, the GEWOS (Gesund Wohnen Mit Stil or Healthy Living With Style) armchair looks like an ordinary, comfortable chair. The difference is that it contains sensors built into the seat cushions, backrest and armrest that measure the heartbeat and oxygen saturation of the seated person, along with an integrated rowing machine that can get you exercising on the spot.

How a Fitbit May Make You a Bit Fit

How a Fitbit May Make You a Bit Fit | Indoor Rowing | Scoop.it
Millions now have fitness-tracking devices. But are they any use?

Via Peter Mellow
UCanRow2's insight:
 Yes, it's true that a Fitbit and its friends aren't likely to transform your weight loss.  Plus they're not great at tracking rowing workouts.  We still like them, though, because they nudge you to keep moving.  And it's that NEAT movement (Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) that just might make the difference when it comes to dropping pounds, especially if you're menopausal.
