"The enormous potential of moveo wasn’t really clear to me at the beginning."

- the moveo story

Almost his entire life, Heinz Sitter has been dealing with the motor skills of the human body. The training therapist and sports scientist studied at the University of Graz and turned his hobby into a profession:

In professional football, he was responsible for targeted performance building and optimal athlete regeneration for many years. For about 20 years, he has been working independently as a training therapist, addressing musculoskeletal complaints in his 3 therapy centers! Musculoskeletal disorders are globally the leading cause of chronic pain, physical functional limitations, and loss of quality of life! These include, for example, back pain, arthritis, osteoporosis!

Approximately 10 years ago, Heinz Sitter conceived the idea for moveo when he was searching for a training device that could activate the entire human musculature in a short time with minimal effort. However, such a device was not available in the health market!

While there are many devices that use 2-dimensional stimulations (vibrations) or electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to engage muscles, they are often too intense for most people, especially patients.

Moveo is the first fitness device that, through gentle 3-dimensional movement, activates and improves both local (especially the intrinsic musculature) and global musculature, promoting blood circulation.

His concept of replicating the human walking pattern using equipment was eventually implemented by the technician and inventor Franz Summitsch. Together with his partner Wolfgang Krammer, Heinz Sitter has been continuously developing moveo for over a decade and is now making it accessible to the general public with an affordable home training device!



What is intrinsic musculature?

The human skeletal musculature consists of 665 muscles and is divided into the global and local muscle system. About two-thirds of the muscles pertain to the global musculature, which can be voluntarily contracted and relaxed (e.g., biceps).

The local musculature is located deep beneath the global musculature, directly on the skeleton or joints. The intrinsic musculature extends from the lumbar to the cervical spine. These muscles work reflexively and are not subject to willpower. Their role is to stabilize joints during movement and protect against shocks and injuries—for example, stabilizing all involved joints for a moment during walking.

This is precisely what we utilize with moveo—but in a sitting position and thus without joint stress! Moveo simulates the natural biomechanical walking movement pattern and activates around 240 muscles. This stimulates blood circulation to the smallest blood vessels and aids in the breakdown of metabolic by-products such as CO2, lactate, and other metabolites. Another positive effect is the stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system, often referred to as the “resting nerve.” It, for example, causes a decrease in heart and respiratory rates, inducing relaxation and regeneration.

Already in use by many doctors, Austrian Ski Federation (ÖSV), and at the Olympic Studio in Innsbruck

In sports: Moveo has been successfully used by numerous athletes for years. It accelerates recovery and the removal of metabolic by-products—such as CO2 or lactate—aiding in rapid recovery after intense training and competitions.

In Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) or Polyneuropathy: The moveo application has been shown to form natural bypass conduits in cases of circulatory disorders. It can alleviate nerve pain and improve sleep quality.

In Occupational Health Management: Many companies utilize the benefits of moveo as part of Occupational Health Management (e.g., LKH Villach and others).

At home: Approximately 1000 satisfied customers already trust the advantages of this simple training device.
