A treadmill desk for LRRD!

All of us at LRRD spend a lot of time sitting at computers, and it's not good for you.

After hearing about treadmill desks, I set out to build one. 

I see they're available commercially now, but that's no fun.  Research and Design, right?

So far, so good.  We need to refine the keyboard holder.  And Jim and I both had some motion sickness after using it, but I think we'll get used to that.  Today I walked about a half mile while answering email!

We'll report on how it works out.

I like the way you've explained everything so naturally even though it's kind of technical, atleast for a person like me. I've been very desperate to burn some fat off my thighs and hips since I'm swelling like a balloon. I was checking some treadmill desks with attached stand up desks that I could use at work, when I came across your blog.
