Combining workstations and treadmills. News::News Article
A number of employers apparently are willing to let their workers walk. Steelcase Inc. says many companies have expressed interest in its newest product, which combines an office workstation with a treadmill so workers can burn calories while earning a paycheck.

The nation's largest office furniture maker will begin taking orders for its Walkstation beginning Nov. 19.

"What we have done is taken science from the lab to a product that could potentially help millions and millions of people," Walkstation developer James Levine told The Grand Rapids Press for a story published Thursday. "I think it's the next iPod. Everybody is going to want one."
