Thompson WG, Levine JA.Productivity of transcriptionists using a treadmill desk.Work. 2011;40:473-477.

A recent study from the Mayo Clinic shows that medical transcriptionists were able to do their desk work at a treadmill desk after being trained for 4 hours. They did consume about 100 kcal more per hour compared to sitting on a chair, but their productivity was also about 16% lower.

So active motion at work does help, but if you use a treadmill desk that physical motion may come at the cost of a decrease in activity. If you think about, it makes a lot of sense: it’s just not that easy to type and mouse while you’re walking – even if you’ve had a good amount of training  – in this study four hours.

activeLife Trainer,TM may help overcome this problem. Slip activeLife TrainerTM under your desk and roll your favorite office chair in the connector. Now you can gently move your legs while being securely seated on a comfortable chair. This keeps your arms and eyes working and ensures that your productivity doesn’t go down as your physical activity level goes up.
