New features include slimmer profile, smaller footprint and upgraded tech

We can’t wait to share the results of our first major treadmill desk overhaul.

LifeSpan, the active lifestyle brand which popularized treadmill desks and bike desks in the workplace, is announcing its new line of treadmill desks.

Heeding the call for sleek, minimalistic design, LifeSpan’s treadmill desks have been modernized to reduce their overall dimensions, and been made quieter, for easy placement into smaller, more intimate professional areas and atmospheres.

But the changes go beyond what’s immediately noticeable.

The treadmill desks’ redesigned control consoles now have convenience features like speed presets, customizable settings and are fully integrated with Apple Health and Google Fit – along with improved displays.

“Every day since we launched our first treadmill desk, our customers have told us how it’s helped change their lives,” said LifeSpan President Peter Schenk. “They’ve also shared feedback on how we could continue to improve on our original design. We heard them, and can’t wait to share the results of our first major treadmill desk overhaul with them,” he said.

In 2011, having spent years creating exercise equipment, the company turned its attention to treadmill desks when it saw customers building desks to use with their treadmills. It soon applied its years of experience and quality manufacturing to the first LifeSpan treadmill desk. The new line being announced today is a modern refinement of its original design.

Far from just preventing the dreaded “sitting disease,” LifeSpan workstations have been said to improve energy levels, benefit heart health and blood values, and reduce back and joint pain, among other physical advantages. Increased cognition, enhanced creativity and improved memory have also been cited as benefits.

Research has agreed with these findings. Multiple studies over the last five years have proven the immediate and long-term benefits of light activity during work. Health Services Management Research reported that people who use treadmill desks are slimmer, less stressed and have lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels than those who don’t. The University of Montreal recently found treadmill desks enhance workforce performance.

“This represents a substantial leap forward for our company,” Schenk said. “But the truly meaningful steps are still the ones that are literal."
