AJ Products Launches Next Generation Desk Treadmill

AJ Products Launches Next Generation Desk Treadmill
04 July 2023

AJ Products is introducing its new upgraded foldable desk treadmill as a way to incorporate movement into the workplace.

In recent years, numerous studies have highlighted the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle. Research indicates that standing at a desk can have a positive effect on overall health; therefore incorporating more movement has an even greater benefit.

A myriad of health-related issues are associated with prolonged sitting, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and musculoskeletal issues such as back and joint pain.  Regular exercise alone cannot fully counteract the negative impact of excessive sitting, the solution lies in reducing sitting time altogether.

According to Public Health England around 1 in 3 (34 per cent) of men and 1 in 2 (42 per cent) of women are not active enough for good health.

AJ Products’ desk treadmill offers a practical and convenient solution for individuals aiming to stay active during their work hours.  Designed for users of all fitness levels, the desk treadmill promotes a steady walking pace with a maximum speed of 6 km/h.  Light exercise has been shown to have a significant improvement in cardiovascular fitness, blood circulation, calorie burning and oxygen uptake.

Sedentary behaviour impacts mental health and productivity.  By engaging in low-intensity exercise such as walking on the desk treadmill, individuals can enhance their energy levels and overall wellbeing while in the workplace.

Helen Beebe, Managing Director of AJ Products (UK) Ltd said: “We believe in transforming workplaces into active environments to combat sedentary lifestyles.  Small changes, such as incorporating low-intensity exercise at your desk can significantly impact overall health and wellbeing.  Our desk treadmill provides a solution to break free from the sedentary cycle.’

AJ Products desk treadmill is lightweight, low profile and flexible and can be easily folded and stored.  Equipped with wheels, it offers easy mobility for sharing among colleagues and enhancing workplace flexibility and complements sit-stand desks offering the freedom for users to choose their preferred working position.
