Desk Treadmills are a unique type of treadmill that is for walking only, and allows you to do work while you exercise. The desk treadmill can come with or without the desk portion. You can supply you own desk if you wish. You can put your laptop computer, tablet, phone and other equipment at easy reach on the desk. Lifespan is the leader in Desk Treadmills.

Desk Treadmill – Glossary of Terms
Desktop Height Adjustment = This is a very important feature which will allow you to adjust the desktop to your height. All of the above desk treadmills (that include the desk), supports users 4’10” to 6’8″. These models are manually adjusted.
Electric Height Adjustment = Some of the newer models have an electric height adjustment (motor controlled).They also have memory support for two user height settings.
3 or 6 hour average usage = This is the average maximum recommended runtime that you run your treadmill on a daily basis.
Built-in Intelli-Guard™ = Lifespan Fitness desk treadmills will automatically pause the belt if it senses you have stepped off. This is a safety feature.
Bluetooth = Those walking desk treadmills above that have bluetooth, allow you to communicate with your mac or pc using a free software app to monitor your progress. You can also keep track on the included LED console.
Motor Horsepower (HP) = Horsepower or HP is a measure of power. All else being equal, a more powerful motor is better as it will strain less under heavy load (and last longer). The heavier in weight you are, the more horsepower you should get. Higher horsepower treadmills will cost more money. Overworked, underpowered straining motors are more prone to fail.
Maximum User Weight = Each treadmill depending on its construction and horsepower of its motor has a maximum user weight limit. So if the limit is 300 lbs, and you are over 300 lbs., you should not buy this treadmill but look for one with a higher weight limit. If you weigh substantially less than the weight limit, this will put a lot less strain on the treadmill motor.
Miles per Hour = This signifies the highest speed the treadmill will go when you are running.

Walking Area = This is the tread, belt, or deck that you will be walking on.
Workout Programs = Almost all treadmills have a small computer and display where you can run multiple workout programs that vary the resistance and incline of the treadmill to simulate real walking or running. Examples are programs for the heart, or calorie burn.
LED/LCD Display = The treadmill will have a display to give you information (such as time, calorie burn, distance). They can be either LED lit, or use a backlit LCD screen.
