How Dentists Use a Hoverboard to Improve Your Health
Tucked away on the floor of a dentist’s office, a black plastic case holds a hoverboard.
The device sits on a flat surface with a curved hinge, and the doctor can easily maneuver the device around the office.
The hoverboard can be moved around for tasks like walking or driving.
If the doctor needs to get away from the office, they can use the hoverboard to help move the device to an adjacent office, said Dr. Daniel Biedermann, a dentist in Tampa, Florida.
“We are all working on the same task at the same time,” he said.
“So it is like a second body, like a treadmill.”
A hoverboard is not a replacement for a doctor’s office visit, and it can’t replace a full day of work, said Biedermans wife, Dr. Jill, a dentist in Orlando, Florida, who added that the hoverboards benefits the dentist as well as their patients.
But the hoverboarding device can help a dentist stay focused on their work while also helping their patients improve their overall health, said Jill Biederer, who works in Orlando as a dentist.
“I think a lot of the time you get to do that while you are at home, when you are relaxing,” she said.
The doctors office is a very quiet space, Bieders said, and if the patient is tired, or has an issue, they will likely have to work more on their desk.
“If we are not busy, we can go into the office and we will see where the patient wants to be,” Biedhermans wife said.
Dr. Jeffrey Littner, a pediatric dentist in Florida, has also embraced the hover board.
“It is really fun to see the patient react to it, it helps us to be more proactive,” he told CNN.
Littners office is in the same building as Biedermans office, and he uses the hover boards to help patients in the office improve their physical health.
Littellner’s office has the Hoverboard, a white board that comes with a magnetic attachment.
“The magnetic attachment is so much more than just a board, it is a whole lifestyle thing,” he explained.
“There are different things that you can do with it, like exercise, like taking a nap, eating a healthy meal.”
For Litt, the hoverBoard is a great tool for the patient, because it allows them to interact with the doctor, said Litt.
The board is also very easy to use and holds the patient’s attention.
“They can do whatever they want, and I think that makes it really enjoyable,” Litt said.
LITTNER IS NOT alone in embracing the hover Board, according to research by a pediatrician at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
In an article published in the journal Pediatrics, Drs.
Mary Jo Dohrmann and Robert W. Kornstein studied more than 6,000 children ages 8 to 12 who were enrolled in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Children’s Health Insurance Program.
The study looked at how the children responded to a variety of activities including learning, play, exercise, and interaction with other children.
Researchers found that while children are learning to walk or run, they are also learning how to do more of the activities that children normally engage in, such as talking to adults, and interacting with other people.
In the children who participated in the study, the majority of the children were able to walk, and 70 percent were able or eager to do something else.
This is a good sign, Dohrsman said, because if children are able to learn these behaviors, then the likelihood of them learning how these behaviors will be beneficial to them in later life.
“What we found is that it is important for children to have activities in their lives that engage their brains and bodies, and that are stimulating and rewarding,” said Dohrerman.
She added that there are other benefits to the hover Boards, such it helps with cognitive function, which is the process of working memory.
“You are learning something and it is taking a lot longer to remember, and so the brain is getting better at that process,” she explained.
The children in the survey also reported that they did not have a sense of urgency in their daily routine.
“When I walk to the office or get my children to school, it feels like I am working,” said one child.
The majority of children reported that the HoverBoard helped them with these daily tasks, but not as much as they used to.
This was surprising, because children tend to work for a lot more than they would like to, Duhrerman said.
As they get older, children may be able to use more of their free time, and work more with their family members, she added.
