Most people cringe at the mention or thought of hoverboards. They have generally been associated with accidents and fractures, especially knee and elbow ones. Over the years, companies have developed safe hoverboards with modern features that keep you safe. Even though they are considered toys for kids, they have numerous benefits, both physical and health.
Below are some of the benefits of hoverboards:
Good Exercise for Your Muscles
A hoverboard moves at an average speed of 10 miles per hour. While it’s in motion, you have to learn the art of balancing and controlling it with your body and legs. This makes your muscle stronger and to gain stability. It makes your bones grow strong as you learn to move it to and fro very fast.
Improves Your Reflexes
The control of the hoverboard lies solely within the rider. You have to learn to control speed, direction, and how to stop it. This makes it a perfect exercise for your reflexes. It makes you more alert and focussed, improving your concentration level.It would also be an ideal toy for a child who may seem upset-minded or easily distracted. It would help in improving their concentration, an essential life aspect.
When riding the hoverboard, one must maintain an upright posture. This is a great workout, especially when most people suffer from a ‘text neck’ condition due to long hours on the phone or tablet. An ideal exercise for anyone after long hours at school or on the phone chatting with friends.
Exercise to Burn Calories
Unlike a bicycle, most people find it hard to believe that they can burn calories while riding hoverboards. Research shows that you can burn over 250 calories on every ride. It is an easy exercise and ideal fun activity for an inactive child.
Safe and Environmental Friendly
Their base is made of rubber and therefore do not easily slide but instead hold firmly to the ground. They are safe while riding on the grass, tarmac, cemented area, or on bare ground. They have no emissions, so they are eco-friendly.
If you have been on the fence over buying hoverboards; no need to be undecided anymore. Your child is safe, and apart from the much-needed fun, they will also be having a dose of exercise each time they are using the hoverboard.
