Let’s face it, we spend way too much time sitting in front of our computers. Living a sedentary lifestyle is definitely not good for us, but if it’s your job to be in front of a computer, then there’s not a whole lot you can do about it. Taking a break is always nice, but if you really get into your work, you’ll likely forget to get up and move about until you’ve finished the workday.
The Tread Desk is hoping to change all that by having you walk along while working. It is a nice idea to multitask like this, but I don’t know how it would translate in practice. First of all, you will need a desk that fits your height specifications. You will also need another desk (or one with adjustable height) and a chair so you can sit every now and then. If your office is big enough to accommodate all of this extra stuff, then this would be a great addition! However, if you have a smaller office, this thing is not really meant to be stored, and is pretty expensive, starting out around $840.
