Norwegian research center promotes the TrekDesk Treadmill Desk as a way to workout at work
TrekDesk Treadmill Desks have been generating interest, sales and discussions around the world regarding the health risks created by sedentary office environments. Recently TrekDesk was promoted as a novel way to workout at work by the Cardiac Exercise Research Group (CERG) at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). CERG promoted the use of the TrekDesk Treadmill Desk to employers, appealing to their focus on return on investment. "Integrating exercise into the workplace could save money by reducing sick leave and improving morale." They went on to focus on the primary interest of the Center: "Exercise is a wonderful means of improving cardiac health, and with ischemic heart disease reaching epidemic levels, preventative measures are ever-important."
