Already at the “Get together” in the evening, the three WALK AND WORK Walking Desks on display developed into small crowd-pullers and invited to an active test.
Dr. Eric Söhngen, CEO of Walkolution, outlined the risks of the “Sedentary Lifestyle” for human health in his presentation to an audience of experts.
Based on a few theses from his book “Death By Sitting: Why We Need A Movement Revolution”, he emphatically derived the mission of Walkolution and why the solutions WORK AND WALK, as well as MEET AND WALK from the current product groups and services (Device as a Service, DaaS), can be important assistants to efficiently counter the lack of movement of a large part of the working population.
The Treadmill Desks were very well received by the expert audience and a lively discussion developed in the aftermath of the lecture. The conclusion of the congress can be summarized with one of the statements from the auditorium: “Walkolution is a game-changer. This is the Tesla for the office.”
