Berget replied to Dustin Eide's discussion New: The Complete Guide to Treadmill Desking
"Hi Dustin, I am curious as to who the "industry experts" behind workwhilewalking.com are? It seems to me like a keyword-rich-site designed to profit from comissions. I find some of the recommended products strange, especially the $270…"

"If it says max 30 minutes a day, it might be made for very light use... Check the weight and build of the treadmill and the HP rating."

Berget replied to Paul Franzen's discussion Confidence Power Plus Treadmill: RIP?
"Check your user manual, troubleshooting. If you're lucky, the belt is just loose and you can tighten up the back roller. A treadmill should last much longer than six months!"

Berget replied to Jennifer's discussion manual treadmill
"I've never seen the Woodway curve before! I would look into the biomechanics of walking on a curved surface first though. I can imagine you drop down slightly from the front to the middle, making it harder to keep your upper body stable on a…"

Berget replied to Jennifer's discussion manual treadmill
"Hi Jennifer, I've tried using a manual treadmill: It does not work. The one I tried was a cheap model (and I'm not sure there are any high-end manual treadmills). A manual treadmill is inclined, which makes it hard to keep a good…"

Berget replied to Alex Avrutin's discussion Knee pain while using the treadmill?
"Hi Alex, Physical therapist here. A proper examination of your knee should include several physical tests, to check stability (ligaments), muscular problems or inflammation (tendons). I would suggest going to a different physical therapist,…"

"Hello there, I am from Israel and looking to get a treadmill workstation being set-up at my home office. Where did you get your treadmills if I may ask? Can you recommend a European dealer to me? Thanks, Alex "

"Thanks a lot Sue - that makes sense. I've heard from so many interesting people this week. One of them is Mia, a phd candidate at the Norwegian Sports College who is a planning a study on the effects of walking on thoughts and thought patterns.…"

"Getting clearance from my workplace was the toughest part. Fortunately, legal and human resources approved, with the only surprise being that they wouldn't allow modified equipment. (Which makes sense, I suppose.) So I had to scratch my plan of…"

"Hi Ellen,  If you're buying an office treadmill, you should be able to try before you buy. We're working to establish a network of distributors that will setup the treadmill and let offices try it for free for one week before…"

"Hi Anders, This is my first post on office walkers. I live in the UK and am very interested in setting up a treadmill desk at my office but have been nervous about taking the plunge because it's a fair bit of money. I also share my office with…"

"I should add that shoes are important when starting the treadmill walking. Start with comfortable shoes so you won't get blisters! "

"Hejsan! I am a Swede living in the USA since 7 years. I am a beginner on treadmill desk. I started out walking 5 days after a snowboard accident when I sprained my ankle. The first day I walked 8 miles and had some pain, the day after that I walked…"

"Just 20 years ago, the electric sit-to-stand desks had the "that's really weird-factor". This equipment proved its usefulness, and now they're commonplace and default in most new offices here. I'm excited to see how the…"
