If you ever want a testimonial of how a treadmill desk can help you lose weight, or rather one particular desk, the Lifespan TR1200-DT5 then watch the video above from Jordan. a prominent vlogger from twil.tv. Who would have thought a few years back that there would even be such a thing as a treadmill desk?
Just to clarify this is a desk and treadmill all in one unit. The treadmill is based on Lifespan’s multiple award winning TR1200i which features state of the art shock absorption and a high torque motor. The treadmill walking area is a roomy 20in x 56in. The treadmill will start at a snail’s pace at 0.4mph, so it won’t throw you off balance with a jerky start. It will go on to a top speed of 4 mph which is more than enough for desk job duties.
The desktop area can house all your office stationary, a tablet, laptop, or a desktop computer, leaving you plenty of room for paper and writing space. It measures exactly 31 x 46.5 in. It has a small console unit which sits on the desk and controls the treadmill speed and displays all the ratings for your walking speed, steps you’ve done and distance you have walked.
For your comfort and stability there are padded foam injected armrests on top of the desk front which will enhance your office duties. They also support your wrists and protect against repetitive strain injuries.
The desk also has a slot to keep computer and printer cables off the desk surface and there is also a cable tray underneath the surface to store any extra cables and office equipment, communication devices or stationary.
