Work results just as accurate on Treadmill desks
Mayo Clinic endocrinologist James Levine, MD, practices what he preaches when it comes to health and fitness.
Levine is so passionate about the benefits of trading in the traditional work desk for a treadmill desk that he and many fellow doctors have done it
“It’s definitely taking off in the healthcare environment, and quite quickly, I’d say,” Levine told Health Leaders Media in a recent interview.
Levine and his colleagues actually review patient information while walking on a treadmill desk. He said studies have shown there is no drop in accuracy or performance when working on a treadmill desk, and if anything results improve.
If any employers are concerned about their liability if someone would fall and get injured while on a treadmill desk, Levine said simply have them sign a waiver form.
Plus, remember people are only walking at a speed of about 3 mph on a treadmill.
Many studies have proven that sitting for long periods of time can be bad for your health, while on the flip side standing or walking can have many positive benefits.
Since many of us are looking for more ways and time to be fit, you really owe it to yourself to look more into the possibility if getting a treadmill desk.
