The Treadmill Desk (TrekDesk)



Ever thought that you can lose some unwanted fat while at the office desk? This is not a gag, as per Dr. James Levine of the Mayo Clinic, the creator of the Treadmill Desk. He claims that an individual can shed serious pounds if he could replace regular working hours at the "normal" desk, with work at his beloved innovation. And he added that his innovation could drastically reduce several health and weight related issues affecting the corporate world.



On-site Doctor’s Office



Visiting a doctor generally entails hours away from work. But what if the doctor is at the very campus where you are working?



Such employer-run workplace clinics can offer a variety of services, starting from preventive care to routine tests and vaccinations. And the benefits of such clinics are many; along with improving the employee’s long-term health and cutting down on the waiting period, it also reduces out-of-pocket costs to the employees.



Ever since the mid 1980’s , SAS, which is one of the world’s largest private software companies, has maintained a on-site doctor’s office at its headquarters in Cary, North Carolina, with a view to assist its workforce with regards to their healthcare needs.

1: Now this is interesting. The idea of having a treadmill desk as a perk is great, since it carries with it numerous health benefits. But despite its bigger health advantages, I really don’t think I’m a fit for treadmill desks. This is exactly why I’m settling with standup desks. I find that standing up for 3 hours straight is still too hard for me to take (I figured this will take some getting used to) so – in my hopes of leading a healthier lifestyle – I bought this standup desk http://tinyurl.com/6p844yk.
