Treadmill Desks Lower Health Risks Caused by Lack of Sleep
Date:12/3/2009

Recent studies have shown that sleep deprivation can raise blood pressure as well as increase the risk of obesity. Treadmill desks have been show effective in lowering blood pressure, reducing obesity risks while increasing the quality of sleep.

Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) December 3, 2009 -- Two sleep studies illustrating the negative effects of sleep deprivation on the body have reached independent conclusions which ignore the relation between their found results. The first study out of the University of Chicago found that middle aged adults with insufficient amounts of sleep illustrated a 37% risk of raised blood pressures and hypertension over a five year period. The second study published to the Associated Professional Sleep Societies found that the risk of obesity was also raised by insufficient amounts or an over abundance of sleep.

These studies are important in illustrating the need for the often prescribed eight hours of sleep however the medical community seems to attack the symptoms on a piecemeal basis rather than using a more comprehensive approach.

“Walking has been shown to increase the quality of sleep, lower blood pressure and assist in the loss of weight yet garners little attention in today’s news. If walking were a pill produced by GlaxoSmithKline it would be front page news, however the message of self health restoration goes virtually unnoticed,” states Steve Bordley, CEO of TrekDesk, a treadmill desk manufacturer. “The challenge for most is finding the time to walk a minimum five miles in a day to restore health. The facts are clear. Americans are desk bound at work and couch bound at home. Changing behaviors is easier said then done unless the behavioral change is automatic.”

This is perhaps the most power
