With the rise of technology over the past decade, computers have taken on a whole new role within the work environment. Although computers do increase productivity in the office, they also have become a challenge for workers. Now more than ever, workers are prone to having repetitive stress injuries due to an inefficient office environment and repetitive actions on the computer. E3 Consulting Corporation’s, Joy Boese (featured in the above video at 1:52, 2:25, and 6:15) points out that a comfortable employee is a happy employee, which in return makes them a productive employee. By having productive employees throughout the departments in a work environment, businesses will see an increase in profits and a decrease in potential risk costs. In order to design the work environment around the worker, innovative brands like Goldtouch are now producing products like keyboards which are easy to use and customizable. Ergonomic products, like those from Goldtouch, are effortless to install and have a natural design.

Dr. James Levine explains that sitting down at a desk all day hurts your health. The risks of a sedentary lifestyle include being more likely to develop heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and cancer. Sitting in the same position for hours on end is an unnatural position for the body, so those negative health consequences are the result. Dr. Levine created the treadmill desk to help get people up from their chairs and moving their bodies. The treadmill only goes around 1 mph, but has a large positive affect the body’s health. He says that when people get up from their desks at work, their productivity improves and they are more alert. It not only helps with their work day, but also with their overall health.
