non-motorized walkolution treadmill turns smart work into smart workout

german-produced treadmill ‘walkolution’ needs no electricity

 

sitting for hours in front of a computer can finally turn into a healthy, productive, next generation work experience. movement is evidently dropping, especially in the pandemic where smart-offices are peaking, so in rolls the non-motorized, award winning treadmill. powered just by the user’s own weight and muscle, the quiet product makes exercising almost effortless as long working hours contribute instead of stand in the way. walkolution can simply be placed under a height-adjustable workstation as well as be used with its integrated or free-standing desk.

a quiet workout, from a stroll to a sprint 

 

from a leisurely walk to an intensive HIIT sprint, the intensity level of the treadmill is only determined by the user’s pace. the product, founded by dr. eric söhngen, CEO of the brand, and frank ackermann, requires no electricity to let the smart-worker enjoy a noiseless run even during a video conference. besides the intuitive switching between the different motions, the special design also allows a relaxing leaning back position, which helps relieve back and chest pains from long sitting hours. typing, using a mouse and reading can be practiced with ease.

 

 

and if you’re into barefoot workouts then step right on. due to the elastically springy slats, walkolution feels like running on a soft forest floor. moreover, the rebound effect and the varying degree of hardness cause alternating muscle tension and relaxation. in return, this helps avoid repetitive strain injury (RSI) while optimizing the training effect by improving coordination and balance.

stylish, efficient, ecological

 

‘for each product sold, ten trees are planted to fully compensate for the material consumption and emissions of the manufacturing process. the treadmill is also maintenance-free and does not need to be oiled or lubricated,’ remarks walkolution. to further build on the sustainability strategy, the body and slats are made from ecologically certified beech and birch wood respectively. the inner frame is a solid steel construction that can withstand any load. 

 

 

the walk and work design includes an optional integrated or free-standing, height-adjustable desk for whoever wishes to implement the accessory as part of the station. for better support, the standing aid is covered with slightly elastic nylon, while automatic blocking in the opposite direction prevents slipping. with its ergonomic features, the cognitive benefits of working in motion materialize.
