The Gruve Solution is a new, revolutionary approach to weight management, which provides a personalized, scientifically proven solution that enables healthy, sustainable weight loss. The patent-pending Gruve weight management system uses an omni-directional accelerometer to measure activity intensity and duration. Synchronizing the Gruve device with the Gruve web site gives the customer the ability to view their daily calorie burn and track their weight loss progress.
Muve, who developed their activity-based weight management products in cooperation with the Mayo Clinic, is currently providing their weight management program to corporations and their employees. In commercial and industrial applications, motivation and support are provided, from initiation to completion of the program, using trained “Muvologists.”
When the Gruve is worn, the data is downloaded to the interactive web site, Gruve Online, to track daily progress made. A user’s personal Gruve Online, set up to be individualized and is based on a number of personal factors which determine a user’s daily caloric burn goal. The Gruve web site details how the user is doing in reaching his/her goals, on a minute-by-minute basis, or by the hour, day, or month. In addition, the user’s personal Gruve home page allows access to personal health statistics (blood pressure, weight, cholesterol levels), as well as how many calories are burned during different daily activities (using stairs, grocery shopping, yard work, etc).
The Gruve Solution includes the Gruve real time activity monitor, Gruve Online with support, and the Gruve Guide, a 12-week learning program geared toward teaching a healthier, active lifestyle. Cost of the program is $300 with a one-year online subscription, or $460 with a two-year subscription.
