ScreenshotLooking for a way to get more exercise, despite being a deskbound web worker? Steelcase (makers of high-end office furniture) have an idea for you: the Walkstation. Based on the idea that you can burn enough calories to make a difference, even if you don’t work up a sweat, the Walkstation marries an adjustable-height desk and monitor arm with a low-speed treadmill

There are plenty of other bells and whistles here, including a magnetic sensor that automatically stops the treadmill should you be carried away from your desk, and an optional convertible model that lets you switch from office chair to treadmill at the touch of a button. The drawback? Cost, mainly: buying one of these will set you back $4300 or more. If that’s too rich for your blood, check out how one of our writers made her own.

    I really want to buy a walkstation and I’m looking for the most favorable terms. A payment plan would help !!! Thanks !

  2. Can’t afford the WalkStation? The most affordable treadmill desk I have seen are the TrekDesk, you can see it at http://www.trekdesk.com

  3. Walkstation does have a great idea or product. Buy a new or refurbished treadmill from us and build a desk around it. Cost you a lot less and fit to your needs.
