Frequently Asked Treadmill Desk Questions


Is it hard to set up?

No. In fact, it is quite easy. The Treadmill Desk is actually two separate units: a treadmill and a desk. The treadmill comes completely assembled and ready to plug in. The desk is semi-assembled and can be finished with just a few simple tools that are supplied. Attach the cross-members to the legs, attach the desktop and plug into the treadmill. That’s it and you are ready to go. Complete assembly should take about 15 minutes.


What type of work can be done on the Treadmill Desk?

Most of your daily tasks that you would normally do at a conventional desk can be done while using the
Treadmill Desk. The padded armrests support and stabilize the upper part of your body in a way that makes typing and web browsing surprisingly easy. Talking on the phone is also an easy task and with a bit of practice, hand-writing feels quite natural as well. You can also touch the Pause button on the treadmill desk at any time to write notes or other tasks requiring less movement and your Treadmill Desk becomes a stand-up desk. When you are ready to continue walking, touch the Start button again and your Treadmill Desk picks up right where you left off without losing any of your data.


I’m very big and tall, can the height of the desk be adjusted?

Absolutely, we designed the Treadmill Desk with 18 different height adjustments to ensure proper fit for anyone between 4’10″ to 6’8″ tall. Besides the table height supporting taller users, we also made the treadmill sturdy enough to support users up to 350 lbs. to support people using it for weight loss.


Is the Treadmill Desk quiet? 

Yes. We designed the Treadmill Desk to be used in an office with co-workers nearby. It only makes sense that you could carry on a conversation with the sound of a machine getting in the way. The decibel level depends on the speed: 1 mph is 47 dB, 2 mph is 50.1 dB, 3 mph is 54.2 dB and 4 mph is 59.8 dB. To give an example, at 2 mph the Treadmill Desk makes less noise than a refrigerator and at 4 mph it is still quieter than an air conditioner.


Does the Treadmill Desk have an incline feature?

The Treadmill Desk does not have an incline feature. If it did, then the correct height of the desk would be altered during incline and would affect the user’s ability to productively work. Remember, the Treadmill Desk is not a substitute for daily exercise. It is designed specifically to combat the hours we spend sitting. Sitting, or being sedentary, for extended hours has been linked to numerous health risks. Our bodies were made for movement and our goal in designing this was focused on just that.
