Does anyone have any experience doing cad drafting work at a treadmill desk? Just wondering if the walking motion interferes with the precise mouse movements required. Thanks.Continue

New treadmill desk setup

Attached is a picture of my new setup. It is an extra long (78") motorized height-adjustable desk from Ergo Depot, a Lifespan TR 1200 DT treadmill, and a couple of Ergotron adjustable monitor arms. The wide desk allows me to have both the treadmill and a chair under the desk, similar to the AMG photos shown on the home page. I've been walking about 3-4 hours a day (two hour-and-a-half to two hour sessions)  at between 1 and 1.5 mph, alternating walking and sitting. I just raise or lower the…See More

best used treadmill

Does anyone have any information on which existing brands of commercial "cardio" treadmills are suitable for treadmill desk applications? I live in western Massachusetts, and there are literally dozens of used treadmills for sale on Craigslist, and I suppose the situation is similar elsewhere. It sounds like the qualities of even operation at low speed for extended periods, and quietmess are the most important considerations. Thanks.See More

Hi David,

Sorry it took so long for me to respond.

My desk base is from GeekDesks. (http://www.geekdesk.com/) They were the least expensive out there and I think the quality is there.  I also bought the top from them.  You can also go to Ikea and get one of their tops which would work just as well.

Hope you finding the treadmill desk concept just awesome.  Feel free to ask me any other questions.

Steve
