Meet the Kansas State University prof who works while walking!
Washington, Dec 12 (ANI): Most of us get away with eating or listening to music while working, but this Professor walks.
Kansas State University professor Deb Sellers was very well acquainted with the ill effects of continual sitting and no exercise. So walking looked like the only other alternative.
She and husband, Mark, designed and built a standing desk around a treadmill. They left off the traditional rails; the monitor, telling the assistant professor how far and fast she is walking, sits in a custom-built stand atop the desk.
Doctors at the Mayo Clinic invented a treadmill desk, she said. So her husband a commercial woodworker, made one for her.
He measured heights and widths and then constructed a mock-up out of cardboard. Sellers used it to ensure that the height worked and that she could integrate physical movement with work.
The two hauled it to Sellers' office on the third floor of Justin. She transferred her second computer screen to the new desk.
Next she checked the energy use. No problem: a treadmill uses about the same amount of electricity as a mini-fridge, which is commonplace in offices.
Today Sellers tries to walk-at the pace of 1 mile an hour-at least an hour a day, taking care of e-mail and keeping up with her profession. (ANI)
