Vigor's Health Benefits
Vigor is an under desk pedal that provides low impact desk exercise, helping to prevent ailments caused by the "sitting disease." It does this by keeping your large leg muscles engaged and blood circulating while sitting down at your desk. Here are the health benefits Vigor provides:
Helps Prevent the “Sitting Disease”
Weight gain, poor blood circulation, heart disease, weak muscles, diabetes, chronic pain, bad posture, anxiety and depression.
Vigor's natural leg movement works your legs and improves your body’s metabolism because you’re staying active while sitting.
Regenerates Joint Fluid
Using the Vigor desk pedal increases the regeneration of synovial fluid in your joints so they feel better and last longer.
Helps Prevent Blood Clots
Using Vigor keeps your large leg muscles active, which Improves blood circulation to help prevent blood clots.
Promotes Lipase Secretion
Lipase secretion helps take care of the fat in your bloodstream so it doesn’t accumulate over time.

Vigor fits most swivel chairs on castors. Its size is also adjustable. Check your chair’s base—Vigor can be installed as long as the middle of the base does not protrude downwards below the legs' ends level.

Vigor Burns Calories 44% Faster
The energy expenditure induced by the VIGOR attachment (HG) was measured in the Meir Hospital Sport Medicine Center in Kfar Sava, Israel.
The tests were conducted by Ms. Nekhama Lerer, a clinical dietitian, and supervised by Mr. Yigal Bar On, the head physiologist of the Center. The same MedGem® Analyzer apparatus was used for all tests.
The MedGem® Analyzer protocol for measuring the Rest Metabolism Rate (RMR) was not followed, because the purpose was to find out only how VIGOR influences the metabolism rate.
6 participants volunteered to be tested while sitting on the same swivel chair on castors to which a VIGOR had been attached.
First, the participants were tested for ~10 minutes while just sitting. Immediately afterwards they were tested for ~ 10 minutes of using the VIGOR. In both regimes the testing ended when the MedGem® Analyzer indicated that it has collected enough data, usually after ~8-10.5 minutes.
Each participant was instructed to move the cart to and from by using his/her one foot (i.e. no changing feet during the test) in a manner which is comfortable for him/her, but not faster than ~2 seconds per cycle. When asked after the test, none reported tiredness or discomfort.

After having been diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis, discomfort of my leg was something I just got used to - until I"" had the chance to experience the VIGOR. It challenged my weaker leg and provided a great exercise, and over time I was able to increase the tension. It is not a strenuous workout, just a flowing movement, but the feel of my leg got better. I now use the Vigor at my reading space and am so thankful for how it helps me.

I'm an active and athletic person, but I sit a lot while working – and know that it is not healthy. I tried the chair with VIGOR at my work space, and in the end of day its application told me that I’ve moved my legs for 5 hours during 8 hours of sitting. I felt no discomfort of my legs, got a great stretch which helped me to maintain productivity with my work. This is brilliant!
Thank you so much!!! I work long hours at the computer. It helps me feel relaxed
