New ways to stay healthy and save time are top priorities for those living a busy lifestyle. The Walkoution is an energy saving, silent and motorless treadmill for those interested in doing both – even as they work. It comes in several different versions.
The 300, 700 and 800 models are made on semi-elastic slats made from break-proof birch wood. They have protective coating on top that reduces sound and makes it easy to wipe clean after use. These models are best for wearing shoes, but you can also walk barefoot on it. The other models in the 900 series are made from a surface called Kybun, Its a patented surface from Switzerland designed to make it feel like you are walking or running on soft forest soil. You can use it wearing ergonomic shoes, socks or barefoot.
One of the coolest features is the ability to use while working, whether it is at home or in your office. There are modular variations you can buy with the treadmill, such as the ergonomic backrest, attachable desk or the freestanding work table. You can also use your own standing desk or table with it. The unmotorized treadmill moves with your pace, not needing a power source to plug into making it environmentally friendly and easy on your electricity usage. Plus, for every 10,000 steps you take, the company who makes it, Walkoution GMBH, will plant a tree.
The walking surface is shock absorbing and shock resistant on all of the models. The fact that its silent prevents noisy work environments, meaning you can use it while taking important work calls and video conferences. Its the first of its kind and suitable for basically anywhere you want to work and exercise at the same time. You can even use it simply for exercise on days you can’t leave the house or the weather is poor outside.
