-Updated 05-13-2010- The May 03,2010 print edition of BusinessWeek included the Walkstation in an article in which professor Galen Cranz at UC-Berkley says, “Short of sitting on a spike, you can’t do much worse than a standard office chair.”
The Walkstation by Michigan based Steelcase is a combination of a fully integrated electric height-adjustable work surface with an exclusively engineered, low-speed commercial grade treadmill that allows users to burn calories, feel healthier and more energized all while accomplishing the work they normally do while seated.
The Walkstation (video) with a maximum speed of 2 mph, lets you walk comfortably, while keeping up with work. The Walkstation is based on the NEAT (non-exercise activity thermogenesis) research of Dr. James Levine of the Mayo Clinic.
