Can I add a desk to my treadmill? A standing desk or treadmill desk is something you’ll be using every day, it’s worth putting some time, and some cash, in to make it right. By far the most common DIY “treadmill desk” we’ve seen is just a board laid across a treadmill’s handrails, with a laptop plunked on top.
Are treadmill desks a good idea? Scientific research shows that “treadmill desks” or “walking desks” are an excellent way to increase the activity rate. The results were very satisfactory, not to say beyond my expectations. After 2 months of daily use, it was time to make a first assessment.
How do I choose a treadmill desk? If you are using your own desk, make sure it will rise to a maximum height that accommodates the additional 5-6 inches occupied by the treadmill. It’s important to select a standing desk that will reach proper ergonomic heights to avoid unnecessary strain on the joints and decrease the potential of fatigue.
How tall should a treadmill desk be? The height of most treadmill desks is adjustable from about 4 feet 10 inches to about 6 feet 8 inches tall. Both manual and automatic height adjustment is available.
