Why is a treadmill desk a more beneficial solution than a standing desk? Are treadmill desk worth it?

An abundance of research indicates that long-term standing can be harmful in terms of health and wellbeing, while providing little additional calorie burn when compared to sitting. Standing for extended periods can cause pain and fatigue, worsen varicose veins or circulatory problems and lead to back pain. Additionally, research shows that the caloric expenditure gained from standing all day is equivalent to eating 1 or 2 apples - not enough of an overall impact on the body. The effect of switching between sitting and standing also has no positive outcome as it just alternates between two postures which are negative for your body. To learn more click here.

Is it possible to lose weight with a treadmill desk?

According to the American Council on Exercise, an 80-pound person can easily burn up to 1000 calories during a typical 6-8 hour workday if they walk at a brisk pace. That's approximately equivalent to the calories in an entire meal! Moreover, Walkolution treadmills are motorless and require the user to put in more effort, which results in even higher calorie burn compared to traditional motorized treadmills.

Why is sitting so dangerous?

Our species have evolved over millions of years to be in constant motion. However, with drastic changes to our world in the last 200 years, physical exertion has become a leisure activity rather than a necessity. Those who sit for 8 or more hours per day due to work increase their risk of various diseases such as heart attack, stroke, cancer, diabetes and back pain. Additionally, people with sedentary lifestyles tend to have decreased cognitive functioning and are more likely to suffer from depression or dementia.

What are the benefits of using a manual, non-electric Walkolution treadmill compared to a traditional motorized treadmill?

What are the benefits of using a manual, non-electric Walkolution treadmill compared to a traditional motorized treadmill, like a tread desk or amazon treadmill desks?

Less noise: The manual Walkolution operates nearly noiselessly and allows for quiet use in any setting. On the other hand, electric treadmills make two kinds of noises - from the belt sliding against the surface and from its own motor.

Natural walking: With the manual Walkolution, you can intuitively adjust your speed as you please without fatigue or distraction. Electric treadmills force you to maintain a constant preset speed which may lead to exhaustion.

No follow-up costs: The Walkolution treadmill does not require an electric motor, thus eliminating any additional costs such as electricity bills that come with using an electric treadmill daily.

No maintenance: The components used in a manual Walkolution are designed to provide decades of use without needing frequent maintenance like oiling or adjusting belts. Normal electric treadmills can overheat or sustain damage when used frequently and at high speeds.

For more information about these two types of treadmills, please refer to this video.

What is the maximum number of hours per day you should spend sitting?

Many scientific studies suggest that you should strive for a ratio of 75% movement and 25% sitting throughout the day. This means that you should actively limit the amount of time you spend sitting to no more than 3-4 hours per day, including meals and leisure activities.

Is it hard to type on a treadmill desk?

Typing on a treadmill desk is not difficult since the upper body remains relaxed while walking and the pace of walking is typically slow. With a Walkolution treadmill, you can customize and adjust the speed as needed, unlike electric treadmills with motors. It usually takes a couple of minutes to adapt and become comfortable with typing on the treadmill desk. We've seen authors who have written entire books while walking. Studies even prove that one can type accurately while walking; experiments have been conducted and documented [here](example link).

We have compiled further studies that examine various aspects of office work on treadmill desks on this overview page.

Is it possible to concentrate while walking?

Increasing mental performance was one of the primary motivations behind Walkolution. The brain is one of the organs that benefits most from light physical activity.

Put simply, walking allows you to focus and breathe without having to multi-task.
