Walk while you work! Walk while you Play!
Designed from the "Ground Up" is a term we use to describe our treadmill desks. To define this term we need to first have a brief discussion on how treadmills work from a mechanical perspective.
Treadmills are designed with a drive motor that is connected to the front roller via a belt. The pulley on the drive motor is smaller than the pulley on the front roller to create a mechanical advantage. In other words, this allows the motor to spin multiple times around for every time the front roller spins. This works like the gears of a car. The higher the ratio between the front roller and the motor, the more power the motor can transfer to the treadmill belt and the easier it is for the motor to pull you, as a user, while you're walking.
