Treadmill Desks (aka Walking Workstations) Research Links

Fitneff advocates that the human body is meant to move but often today’s office environment keeps employees sedentary. And prolonged sitting, which is a sedentary behaviour, actually decreases workplace productivity and even morale which comes at a high cost to employers. And so we strongly suggest rethinking work habits, and encourage companies to incorporate movement into the workday supporting for example, productivity, boosting mental agility and leading to great overall returns (Source1).

"The Health of your employee has a direct correlation to the health of your company.  Is the cost of an unhealthy workplace affordable? The answer is no, it is not affordable".
