Mayo Clinic researchers have developed a device to promote standing & ambulating time as a treatment for obesity and deconditioning. The device is worn on the belt and has two operational modes: i) it measures the time the user spends standing/ambulating per day; and ii) it displays a goal for the user in standing/ambulating minutes per day.
