It's no secret that exercise is viewed as beneficial for managing osteoarthritis and keeping weight under control. Just recently, we learned that light execise may help prevent osteoarthritis too. Low-impact activity, such as walking, is considered easier on the joints than high-impact activity like running or tennis.

Just about everyone realizes a regimen that includes regular walking promotes better health. But it's not always easy to make that commitment. Other obligations can steal away your time. Some people find that treadmills are the answer. It's convenient because you can do it right from home if you own one. Even so, there's still a time issue. What if you could combine your desk with your treadmill? Do you think I'm kidding? I'm not!

Someone actually thought of this and designed the TrekDesk Treadmill Desk. Check it out -- the TrekDesk Treadmill Desk lets you walk while you work. It's designed to fit any existing treadmill. TrekDesk is a full-sized workstation that allows you to walk daily while you remain productive. Before you decide this is exactly what you need, talk to your doctor to be sure a regular walking regimen is right for you.
