Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) October 24, 2010
Forbes.com, spotlighting office innovations, has praised the Phoenix based TrekDesk Treadmill Desk as an invaluable product to restore health and lose weight touting it as “One of the Best Workplace Luxuries Available Anywhere.”
“We are pleased by Forbes recognition as to the tremendous health benefits attributable to walking and working with a TrekDesk. However based on recent medical evidence we would replace the word luxury with necessity,” stated TrekDesk founder Steve Bordley.
At $479.00, approximately 1/3 the cost of a monthly health insurance premium, it is also a very affordable necessity. TrekDesk, available for sale at TrekDesk.com, is a full sized height adjustable workstation which attaches to an existing treadmill allowing individuals the opportunity to walk slowly through the day while they work.
While the financial and productivity risk to American business is well understood, affordable solutions to the problem have proven to be a challenge. Medical reports and studies focusing on rising obesity rates and ill health caused by “Sitting Disease” (a term given to the multitude of syndromes and diseases caused by sedentary lives) have emerged from numerous medical authorities this past year.
TrekDesk has only been selling since October of 2009 but has already garnered attention worldwide. “We have shipped TrekDesk’s literally all over the world and received press coverage in books, magazines or blogs from nations around the globe,” related Bordley, “ inactivity and obesity plagues virtually every developed nation in the world.”
