Gruve Technologies, Inc. a leading provider of scientifically proven health and weight loss products announced that it has signed a technology license agreement with Mayo Clinic in exchange for sales-based royalties. The agreement allows Gruve Technologies use of patented technology developed from Mayo Clinic research, patient care and education.
Leading obesity expert,James Levine, M.D., and the Mayo Clinic Active Life Research Team spent 10 years conducting medical research on nutrition, physical activity and behavior related to weight management and obesity prevention. This research concluded that a contributing factor to the obesity epidemic is the decrease in expenditure of human energy through lack of movement in daily life.
Dr. Levine and others at Mayo Clinic responded to this finding by developing the concept of Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis (N.E.A.T.)™ which focuses on the daily calories one burns while doing normal, non-exercise activity. These activities include walking to meetings, pacing while on the phone, cleaning the house, cooking, folding laundry, climbing stairs or standing while you talk to a friend. It does not include the calories you burn during intense periods of exercise such as long distance biking, running, jogging, aerobics or power walking.
Research found that increasing the N.E.A.T.™ in your daily life can result in sustainable weight loss and a dramatic improvement in one’s overall health. This reduces obesity risk factors including percent body fat, Body Mass Index (BMI), cholesterol, the HDL/LDL ratio, and plasma triglycerides.
Gruve Technologies will continue the development of the hardware and software for the device component of the Gruve Solution™, a sustainable weight management solution based on the work done at Mayo Clinic.
Gruve Technologies’ signature product, The Gruve® is a total body motion activity monitor centered on the concept of N.E.A.T.™ The Gruve is the only activity monitor in the market today that is sensitive enough to capture N.E.A.T. ™activity. The Gruve has been scientifically validated to be accurate and proven effective to aid weight loss.
“The Gruve is the only accurate N.E.A.T.™ based weight management device available today. It was developed from extensive medical research,” said Dr. Robert Gauthier, Chief Executive Officer, Gruve Technologies. “The team at Gruve is dedicated to providing consumers accessible solutions to better health and weight management.”
