Sedentary Former Athlete replied to Robb Shecter's discussion Any web designers or app developers want to collaborate?
"That's exactly right, Rob!   You could set up a healthy lifestyle kind of website that has all kinds of information on work-walking/office-walking and "mildly monetize" it with affiliate links, in addition to, say, a one-time fee…"

"Ah, never mind!   I think this is the one for me: http://www.hardwoodfurniture.com/index.html!   I don't like the looks at all, but the price is right and the thing looks like it'll do everything I need, so that's that."

"Yeah, as Kelly notes, having an office walker-specific app would really make this movement stand out!   I'd pay for such an app.  I hope you'll let us know when it's ready!  I'd be happy to promote it…"

Monitor Arm??

 Okay! A year and a half after I bought my TreadDesk walking treadmill, I am finally about to begin to really use it! Long story short, I haven't had the opportunity to really use it, with a proper setup, for various reasons.  But now I finally will be able to, so I'm in the market for a good standing desk and, perhaps even more importantly, a computer monitor arm!! So, any recommendations for a good ergonomic standing desk that really accommodates PCs?  To go with my TreadDesk treadmill in…See More

"I use these two tables from Ikea on top of my company provided desk unfortunately they are not adjustable, but they are pretty cheap. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/00095036 http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40104270  "

Sedentary Former Athlete replied to stebboko's discussion Anyone get shoulder pain?
"That's what folks say, but having been in Army infantry, I'm used to the "quick march!"   Actually, I'd like to walk at the top speed of, what, 4 mph or so, but that's when I'll have trouble typing.  At 3…"

Sedentary Former Athlete replied to stebboko's discussion Anyone get shoulder pain?
"FWIW, I had discomfort in the hips but found a slower speed to cure it.  (Still haven't figured out how to walk at ~3 mph without such issues, though!)"

Hiya, Folks! Glad to be back around these parts after all this time...will really be getting serious about standing at work! Boss won't let me do the treadmill thing -- just too weird for him -- but it's okay to stand at my desk. Thing is, he has in mind a separate standing desk, whereas I'd rather use just the desk I do have, mostly because I like how it's situated in the office! So, my question is, does anyone know of a "shelf" (or whatever this would be called) that I can just put on my…See More

Sedentary Former Athlete replied to n2002's discussion Treaddesk squeaking. General maintenance tips?
"Hi, My TreadDesk Tread did not come with that page either. I e-mailed the company and received a .jpg or some scanned photo of it. No big deal, though. The information on it is pretty much already in the manual you do have, only a little more…"
