Welcome to Gruve!
Thank you for taking us on your journey to better health! All of us at Gruve Technologies, Inc. are happy to be your partner as you move towards achieving your health goals. Gruve Technologies is proud to provide the only activity monitoring products in the marketplace today that incorporate the landmark medical discovery of NEAT (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis).
NEAT is all the calories one burns while doing normal (non-exercise) daily activity. Scientific research over 10 years found that increasing the NEAT in daily life can result in sustainable weight loss and a dramatic improvement in overall health. In other words, increasing daily, normal NEAT activity, is more effective for successful and sustainable weight loss than short periods of intense exercise!
Since extensive medical research shows that only consistent low intensity activities have a direct relationship to long term weight loss and maintenance, we believe that NEAT is the only effective and trustworthy standard for activity monitors seeking to assist people in weight loss and maintenance. Gruve Technologies continues to educate and promote daily NEAT activity (instead of short periods of intense exercise) for a proven sustainable path to successful weight management and better health. You can learn more about this important medical finding on our NEAT Info page.
The Gruve activity monitor is the only NEAT Certified monitor on the market!
The Gruve Solution
The Gruve SolutionTM is a proven approach to long term weight loss and management that combines an extremely accurate NEAT monitor, an easy to use interactive website, online coaching, a 12 week Jumpstart Guide and other valuable health information resources.
Gruve® - The ultra slim and stylish Gruve device uses an omnidirectional accelerometer and proprietary software to accurately measure and record user activity intensity and duration. The medical quality device can record 98% of daily activity (the highest in the industry), as scientifically verified by the doubly labeled water method of measuring energy expenditure (considered by scientists all over the world as the "gold standard" in accuracy for measuring energy expenditure). It is sensitive enough to differentiate between lying down, sitting, standing, climbing stairs, walking, running or other movement, unlike a pedometer that can only estimate the distance walked. The Gruve device provides three forms of real-time feedback to keep users on track and modify behavior over time to increase daily NEAT activities to achieve better health, weight loss and maintenance – color progression bar, vibration and website visuals.
Gruve OnlineTM - The Gruve Online website (www.gruve.com) software is calibrated at the initial setup with a person’s health information and it determines the amount of daily NEAT activity needed to manage caloric intake to achieve the desired weight management goal – the Gruve Online Personalized NEAT plan. Synchronizing the Gruve device with Gruve Online gives users the ability to privately view their daily calorie burn and track their weight loss progress.
