For years physical activity has been engineered out of the workplace with the objective of improving employee productivity. Automation has replaced manual work, and advances in information systems and computing have made us more productive and sedentary at the same time. According to the Mayo Clinic, occupational related daily activity now burns 23,000 fewer calories annually than in 1960. This is equivalent to 6.5 pounds of weight gain per year simply from moving less while at work.
Research results associated with inactivity have become increasingly clear that our sedentary lifestyles and general lack of physical activity is unhealthy and leads to obesity and many chronic health conditions. In fact, inactivity has been labeled as the new smoking for our generation.
It’s time we start “Rethinking How We Work.” LifeSpan Workplace Solutions™ has products that bring physical activity back to the workplace simply by walking at slow speeds or pedaling during the work day.
EVERYONE CAN PARTICIPATE
Most everyone has activities during the day that can easily be performed while walking or pedaling. Phone calls, email, reading, webinars and conference calls are easy places to start. You will find that getting 6,000 – 10,000 steps a day is easier than you think just by starting with these simple tasks.
You can add treadmill desks or bike desks into your personal office. Place them in common areas like lobbies, cafeterias and meeting areas to be shared by groups of people or add them to a fitness area as a light activity option.
If you already have a corporate wellness program, LifeSpan Workplace Solutions™ products can help improve participation levels. Our treadmill desks automatically count steps walked using a patented technology called Intelli-Step, and our bikes count pedaling revolutions in the same way, with each revolution counting as the equivalent as a step. Both activities can easily be incorporated into your wellness program. Results can then be easily tracked with an online account, since all of our consoles include integrated Bluetooth communications.
ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS
Our Workplace Solutions™ line includes products designed for individuals, as well as, products intended for groups of users to share throughout the day. Individual use products make a great addition to a traditional office, or can be used with a standing desk to add activity to an already healthy desk choice. Group use products can be placed in lobbies, activity areas, cafeterias and other general community areas commonly shared among employees, guests or clients.
The modular design of our products allows each piece of equipment to be coupled with each desk option. There are 3 treadmill options and 1 bike that all can be combined with 3 different desk options. This modular approach gives you the ability to select the desk that best meets your needs by either using your existing adjustable height desk, the DT5 manual Height Adjustment Desk or the DT7 electric height adjustable desk and then select the equipment model that you want to combine with your desk.
Three different Desk/Console models are available to complement our equipment. These include the DT3 Standalone console that sits on your existing standing desk, the DT5 Manual Height Adjustment Desk, and the DT7 Electric Height Adjustment Desk. + More information - Less information

LifeSpan Fitness Club Account
Each product comes with a LifeSpan Fitness Club account. This account lets you set goals and track progress against those goals, whether for yourself or a team. The LifeSpan Fitness Club is supported by an online software called the Interactive Health Partner (IHP). The IHP can be customized and branded with your company information and the IHP Team can provide you with coaching support, results reporting and more. For more information contact a Workplace Solutions™ Representative.
Apps That Track Your Progress
All of our consoles have apps that communicate via Bluetooth to connect with your Bluetooth-enabled Windows or Mac computers. These apps sync with your LifeSpan Fitness Club account so that all results are tracked in one place.
A great way to measure and track daily levels of physical activity. LifeSpan treadmill desks include the exclusive "Intelli-Step" feature that tracks each step automatically. A similar feature is offered on our bike desk models, counting pedaling revolutions “revs” which provides an easy comparison to steps for office challenges and team competitions.
We understand the importance of safety–at home and in the workplace. Safety is always a top priority in the design of every product. Things like interlocking our desks with our treadmills help ensure stability, limiting the maximum speed on treadmills to 4.0 MPH (the maximum speed can be adjusted down to 2.0 MPH if desired FAQ), and stamping LifeSpan on the belt to show belt movement are all part of our treadmill desk solutions. We also include the "Intelli-Guard" feature on all our treadmills. This feature recognizes when you stop walking and automatically "pauses" the treadmill to ensure that no one steps back on without recognizing the belt is moving.
