What is Smovey?

Smovey is a dynamic fitness product that is like no other. It provides a dynamic upper body workout that gets you fit while helping to burn more calories and stabilize your back and spine.
Each Smovey Ring weighs 1 lb and includes four metal balls that run freely inside the hollow plastic tubes. Swinging the Smovey Rings moves the balls inside the Rings creating a varying resistance of up to 10 lbs that is dynamically adjusted based on your strength and condition.
The movement of the balls also creates a vibration of 60Hz, which is transmitted through the handles of the Smovey Rings to the palms of the hand. The vibration acts on the meridians in your palms harmonizing the flow of Qi (energy) throughout the body, providing an exceptional healing effect while working out, leaving you relaxed and revitalized.
Right from the first swings you can feel the positive effect of swinging and vibration – we call it the Vibroswing Effect.
The positive vibration of Smovey penetrates the meridians through the palms of your hands and harmonizes the flow of Qi (energy) through the 3 Yin meridians and the 3 Yang meridians, providing an exceptional healing effect while working out.
Normally there are stagnations of the Qi due to wrong posture during the day. Stagnant Qi means lack of flow of energy, which may result in muscle pain, numbness and stiffness of ligaments, joints and spine. Excessive use of joints also wires out the flow of Qi, leading to problems such as frozen shoulder, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow and tendonitis.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine and Reflexology, the palms of the hands include specific pressure points for the inner organs of the body. The rhythm of the Smovey vibration regulates the flow of Qi and contributes to the harmony of all organs in the body.

Production of the Smovey

"For people, by people."
True to this saying, Smoveys are produced in an integrated factory, by people with mild physical and mental limitations, in Weyer, Upper Austria. Due to the location of our factory, we can guarantee the following criteria for every Smovey unit produced:
1. "Handmade in Austria" – Since the beginning of production in 2006, every Smovey unit has been made by hand, with quality control checks following every step of production.
2. "The Original" – the unmistakable characteristic of Smovey, through color, shape, appearance, and workmanship give our product a monopoly as an optimally-functioning swinging-ring system.
3. "New Opportunities" - Smovey creates an opportunity for people who have had difficulty finding work due to disability to enter the job market through cooperation with this special project.
