When using your treadmill desk there are several factors one should consider to promote a healthy, safe walking and working environment. Comfort is the key and the tips below will help maintain proper posture while walking and working.
- Wearing comfortable shoes that provide proper support for walking longer durations is a great place to start. Try to avoid open-toe and other styles of shoes that will provide discomfort and fatigue over time.
- Establishing the ideal desk height with proper ergonomics is critical for comfort, safety and a proper walking posture. Adjust the desk height so that your elbow is level with the keyboard, laptop, phone or mouse. Selecting the proper height adjustment will properly position the wrist during typing, prevent soreness in the elbows and promote the body being in an active and upright walking position. For those looking to mount a display to the treadmill desk, look to position the display at eye level and based on preference 18” – 24” away from your face.
- When using a phone, it is strongly recommended that a “hands free” solution is implemented. This will keep both hands free to work and provide additional security and safety by freeing up hands to make the necessary console adjustments. The treadmill desk offers ample working surface area, so keep items that are used often within close proximity.
