There’s no doubt that all this sitting around in front of computers all day can be bad for your health. Even if you discount the stories about increased health vulnerabilities, there’s the fact that being stationary all day plays havoc with the waistline and can quickly lead to serious weight gain and worse.
This TrekDesk Treadmill Desk aims to fight back by giving you a combination treadmill and working area, so you can do your tasks while conducting a gentle stroll – or a gallop if you’re hard core – at the same time. It’s clearly going to be difficult to persuade your boss to install one of these in your cubicle, but for those who work at home or have the luxury of a larger office space, this could be a sound investment.
The price at $479.00 is also not huge, when you consider that a tablet computer can cost more than that, and what price a healthy productive
sheep worker, eh? You will need to supply your own treadmill, but again there’s plenty of choice available out there. We’d like to see one that let’s you work while bouncing on a mini-trampoline, but then again we’re definitely perverse people.
