As we age, the inability to stand on one leg for 10 seconds can be linked to something that you once wouldn’t have even imagined. With age comes a slow decline in physical and muscle strength. Oftentimes it happens gradually, hence it’s not as noticeable. However, research shows that a person in their 50’s will begin to feel and notice that their balance and stability are rapidly going downhill along with their cognitive health.
Starting in 2009, research in Brazil was conducted on 1702 volunteers between the ages of 51 and 72. This research focused on simple balance tests. The study participants had an average age of 61 with two thirds being men. Approximately 1 in 5 subjects failed to balance on one leg for 10 seconds at the initial checkup. Researchers monitored the participants for a subsequent period of 7 years, during which 123 (7%) of the people being studied died. The proportion of deaths among those who failed the test (17.5%) was significantly higher than those who were able to balance for 10 seconds (4.5%).
Study participants were told to lift one leg and place the other leg behind, keep their eyes fixed ahead, and arms at their sides. Each volunteer was given three attempts. 1 in 5 volunteers who failed the test were in poorer and older health. 7 years later, when researchers checked on the participants, 7% who had failed the test passed away while this number was only 4.5% among those who passed the test.
The study concluded, for those unable to complete the balance test, there was an 84% higher risk of death from any one cause and this link remained even when other factors to include age, sex, BMI and pre-existing conditions such as coronary artery disease, hypertension, obesity, high cholesterol and diabetes were taken into account.
HPT = The Secret Key
Voxx HPT is a neurohaptic pattern specially integrated into each wellness and performance product. Contact with it triggers a neural response in the brainstem that helps instantly improve balance, stability as well as manage pain: no medication needed.
It does this through a special touch-based pattern embedded into each product that activates a specific sequence of receptors in your skin. The skin receptors generate a neural response in the brain that leads to improved neurological function especially balance and stability.

What Does HPT Do For You?
- Better Stability
- Increased Energy
- Enhanced Pain Management
- Faster Recovery
In short, Voxx HPT patches are essential to improve your day-to-day balance and in the long run, can even potentially help you live longer. Stability and balance can be taken for granted as we get older, however, Voxx HPT is a way to help combat or even slow down the negative effects aging can have on our bodies in relation to stability and balance.
