Tread Lightly

by RaeAnne Marsh

Walking is part of many a wellness program encouraged in today’s workplace. Taking a stretch around the block or around the building may be good plan, but this time of year if the heat doesn’t get you, the monsoons will. An easy-to-store treadmill can be an option.

Lightweight and easy-to-store are among the breakthrough attributes of Treadly — making it easier for consumers to get fit and healthy in their offices and work spaces as well as at home. At just 55 pounds and only three and a half inches thick, Treadly is a multi-faceted treadmill that can be used and stored almost anywhere — or may be kept always at hand under an office-worker’s desk.

Treadly uses a patented infrared stepping technology to track the position of the user’s feet on the belt — whether they are on the back “slow down area,” the central “constant speed” area or the forward-most “speed up area” — and adjusts the speed accordingly. The optional hydraulic handrail will increase Treadly’s maximum speed from 3.7 mph to 5 mph.
