Employees Have Yet Another Reason To Lose Their Office Chairs In Favor Of A Treadmill Desk: Their Brain
Date:12/2/2008

Use of Treadmill Desks May Increase Production of Small Blood Vessels in the Brain

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) December 2, 2008 -- Numerous studies in recent years have shown that walking on a regular basis lowers an employee's incidence of stroke, dementia and Alzheimer's Disease, however scientists are just now uncovering the exact reasons why. A recent study conducted at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill found that individuals who participate in regular, long-term exercise had as much as 43% more small blood vessels in their brains than those who were sedentary. The challenge most employees face is finding time to engage in sufficient daily exercise due to the sedentary nature of their employment. Treadmill desks may hold the answer for many of them.

Though not thoroughly understood, it is believed that walking prompts the body's production of a variety of beneficial elements including increased production of blood vessels (angiogenesis) and capillaries that assist in muscle growth and retention, brain function and overall health efficiencies. Further studies have shown that sufficient amounts of daily walking increases brain function such as memory as much as 15% in as little as 6 months. Employees currently using treadmill desks report gains in production and concentration in an addition to the numerous health benefits, including weight loss. A detailed list of these health benefits can be found at the TrekDesk website at http://www.trekdesk.com.

"This is one more study that validates the need for employees to get out of their chairs and start moving,"
