Walk n’ work: Will treadmill desks catch on in Singapore? #Singapore
If you have medical conditions such as diabetes, heart problems, back pain, past lower limb injuries and neurological conditions which may be aggravated by strenuous physical activities, or result in accidents on the treadmill, please seek advice from your doctor before stepping onto the treadmill. Wear a good, comfortable pair of walking shoes with ample feet support. Get used to walking on a conventional treadmill first before working on it. Walk for 10-15 minutes at a comfortable speed for a few days. Once you're comfortable, try reading while walking on the treadmill. Even when you get used to working on the treadmill desk, always warm up by walking on it for a few minutes first, before starting work on it. Take a break after walking for 30-45 minutes to rest your back and lower limbs. Always walk at a comfortable speed that will allow you to work productively.
