About Treadmill Desks

The desk treadmill is a revolutionary product which removes the negative effects of a sedentary work life by allowing you to exercise your body while you work. Allowing you to keep your body moving without sacrificing your work, it’s the perfect solution for anyone concerned about their inactivity. Desk treadmills look very much like treadmills, but they have an integrated desktop which can easily hold your computer or laptop. Like treadmills, they will have a console to feedback your exercise statistics such as your speed, steps taken and miles walked.

DESK TREADMILL BENEFITS

  • Alleviate the negative effects of a sedentary work life
  • Complete work and remain active simultaneously
  • Reduce stress on joints compared to outside terrain

WHAT TO CONSIDER

When purchasing a desk treadmill, there are several factors to consider in order to make sure you buy the best option for you.

Measure your workout space: It’s imperative that the desk treadmill you buy fits comfortably into your allocated space. Measure the length, width and height of the available area and keep this handy when browsing desk treadmills. When measuring, make sure you allow extra space for mounting and dismounting. We recommend a 2ft clearance each side, 130mm at the front and at least 3ft at the back. Don’t forget that your desk treadmill will need to be located close to a power point.

Speed: A desk treadmill need only have a 3km/h top speed for walking. However, if you desire a desk treadmill that can also be used as a regular treadmill, we recommend a speed limit of at least 10km/h (6mph).

Cushioning and stability: Cushioning on the running area helps to protect your joints from impact. Look for desk treadmills with impact-reducing/shock absorbing cushioning. The sign of good cushioning is when the desk treadmill doesn’t shake, wobble or vibrate when in use.

Don't forget! Floor mats: place under your desk treadmill for stability and to protect your floors from wear, as well as perspiration.
