Seattle, WA (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
WorkWhileWalking.com, the Web’s leading destination for treadmill desk product reviews and advice, today announced the release of its first eBook, “The Complete Guide to Treadmill Desking.” Featuring content compiled from health experts, treadmill desk industry insiders and experienced users, the new volume takes the risk and confusion out of setting up a treadmill desk in the home office or workplace while serving as a useful reference guide.
Treadmill desks have been around in medical labs since the 1990s, but only in recent years have they become practical and affordable for every desk-bound worker. This coupled with recent research showing that one hour of sitting can be as bad for health as smoking a cigarette has led to a growing interest in treadmill desks. In a recent study, the American Cancer Society found that women who sat six hours each day were 37 percent more likely to die by the end of the study period, and men were 18 percent more likely to die.
“Treadmill desks are a proven way to fight back against the extremely negative health consequences of sitting too much, plus they help you lose weight and boost productivity – all without taking time out of your day,” says Ron Wiener, editor-in-chief of WorkWhileWalking.com. “Although treadmill desks are quickly gaining popularity – with hundreds of thousands of people already using a walking workstation – there isn’t much tribal knowledge available about the best equipment, proper ergonomics and best practices. This new eBook and our site provide the critical information people need to be successful with treadmill desking.”
The Complete Guide starts with a treatise on the health and wellness considerations of using a treadmill workstation, including a summary of the breakthrough research on Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis (NEAT) performed by Dr. James A. Levine of the Mayo Clinic. From there it delivers step-by-step guidance on selecting treadmill base units and desks coupled with detailed tips for maintaining proper ergonomics and using treadmill desks safely on a daily basis. In addition, the eBook incorporates numerous hands-on product reviews from major manufacturers, including Steelcase, LifeSpan, GeekDesk and ModTable.
“‘The Complete Guide to Treadmill Desking’ is the best book I have read on how to begin and succeed at using a treadmill desk,” said Dr. Michael Nirenberg, a podiatrist, walking instructor and editor of FloWalking.com.
