Walkstation: Exercise While You Work
It’s safe to assume that a large percentage of the planet’s population spend their days hunched over a computer, working away. This situation does not add up to a very healthy lifestyle. Sedentary working usually has to be supplemented with some sort of exercise outside of the office to offset the results of not moving your body much.
One man has come up with an unusual solution which combines exercise and work at the same time. In 2005, Dr. James Levine, an endocrinologist at the Mayo Clinic, devised a homemade desk built on top of a treadmill. Called the Walkstation, it allows workers to burn calories, and work usually unused muscles while they do desk work.
