Do you want a way to keep your legs active while you work at your desk or watch TV? The MiniTread is designed as a mini treadmill for desk users – but you can use it virtually anywhere you sit.
Exercise and Burn Calories While You Work with a Mini Treadmill:
For example, slide it under your desk at the office and actively move your legs all day long without standing up. The machine runs quietly enough to not disturb phone calls or meetings.
Plus, moving your body tends to increase focus while you work. You may actually get more done at the office. Not to mention, burn some calories too.
That said, the repetitive, natural motion of stepping your legs isn’t distracting or tiring. In fact, many people find that under-desk treadmills give them more energy due to increased blood flow.
Note: This under-desk treadmill is designed for use while sitting only. It does not support standing. If you want a compact walking pad that you can use while standing, check out the Foldable WalkingPad.
MiniTread Helps Older Adults Stay Active Without Walking Around:
This mini treadmill also offers a great solution for older adults who may be less mobile or who use a wheelchair. It delivers low-impact exercise, so people at virtually any fitness level can stay active, boost circulation and burn calories.
The motorized device can provide daily fitness without having to stand up, walk or even go outside. Plus, it’s easy to set up and easy to use, especially with the included remote control.
Note: This mini treadmill works on any virtually any floor surface, including carpet.
Conveniently Compact and Portable Treadmill:
This compact treadmill has a big advantage over other walking pads in that you can easily pick it up and carry it. The entire device weighs less than 25 pounds, and it has convenient carrying handles on both sides.
As a result, you can move it from your desk or dining room table to the living room sofa. In addition, you can stick it in the car and take it to the office. Or even use it outside while you enjoy the sun.
When not in use, the MiniTread easily store under a desk, table or in a closet. You may also be able to fit it underneath a sofa or bed too (the device only measures 5.5″ high).
Review: Overall, this under desk treadmill provides an easy way for people to stay active while sitting. Plus, it takes up very little space, is ultra portable, quiet and affordable.
However, you won’t get the same calorie burn as you would from a standing treadmill desk.
