calories and lose weight while working.

A healthy step in the right direction.
The Walkstation is the combination of a fully integrated electric height-adjustable worksurface with an exclusively
engineered, low speed commercial grade treadmill. At a maximum speed of 2 mph, the Walkstation lets you walk
comfortably, burn calories, feel healthier and more energized… all while accomplishing the work you’d normally do
while seated. No sweat!
The Walkstation has as much to do with a traditional cardiovascular treadmill workout as a walk in the woods does
with a marathon. Fact is, you’d never be able to do all your normal desk-based activities on a healthclub-style treadmill.
It just wouldn’t compute!
The Walkstation. Designed to bring
healthy habits to sedentary workers
while they are actually working.
The most data-rich investigation of obesity ever undertaken.
The Walkstation is based on the proprietary NEAT™ (non-exercise activity thermogenesis) research of Dr. James
Levine of the renowned Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN. NEAT refers to the calories we burn in our every day lives, or
simple movement. The study, with 150 million lines of downloaded data carried out over a 10 year period, focused on
how calories are expended through all the activities of daily living.
He analyzed the feasibility of walking while working and the relationship of that activity to the potential of burning calories
and losing weight.
The effort culminated in the Walkstation: the first product in the entirely new FitWork™ category of products from Details.
The Walkstation: designed to change the face of the corporate workplace and the health of its workforce.
• It is metabolically more effective to put more NEAT (simple
movement) into your life to achieve a healthy body weight than
to seek organized exercise.1
• It is feasible to increase NEAT in the workplace. Subjects were
able to perform their job functions while walking on a treadmill
at one mile per hour.2
• Walkstations were not disruptive in the office setting.3
• Subjects reported that they enjoyed using the Walkstation;
that it could be used in the actual work arena and that, if
available, they would use it.4
• Since many people spend most of the working day sitting in
front of a computer screen, if seated computer-time was
replaced by walking while working, energy expenditure could
increase by 100 calories per hour. Thus, if obese individuals
were to replace time spent sitting at the computer with 2-3
hours per day of walking computer time, and if other
components of energy balance were constant, actual weight
loss may result.5
The groundbreaking relationship
between Details and me enables us
to create and make available the
Walkstation, thereby bringing my
research from the lab to the people
in the form of a product.
In today’s corporate world, mobility is no longer strictly upward.

A variation of the Walkstation is the Sit-to-Walkstation, ideal for a personal workspace. Throughout the day, an individual
can move from sitting, to standing, to walking at the push of a button. The only lost time is the time it takes to change
from a pair of dress shoes to a casual pair of walking shoes.
