Walk slow - act fast. Precise operations, such as nudging images pixels at a time with a trackpad are impossible at high speeds. I may walk at 1 mph or just stand all day long on intense projects. Right now I'm walking at 2 mph, which may not seem like much, but I feel like an olympiad as I try to navigate this keyboard.
The TreadDesk sits lower to the ground than it's competition; which means I don't have to raise my standing desk to a dizzy height. It's quiet too. I appreciate it the most during over-extended phone calls with service people.
After a year with this setup, I'm still glad I have it. But I would recommend a standing desk above all. The productivity boost from sitting to standing was a larger jump than the boost from standing to walking. Plus the standing part is cheap (just cinder blocks) compared to the TreadDesk.

How to Make a Standing Desk (Diagram).
- 1) First of all, measure how high your fingers would comfortably rest on a keyboard when you are standing. Low is good, but let your palms rest too.
- 1a) Four and 3/4 inches: height of TreadDesk on the mat that ships with it.
- 1b) Your height plus 1a if you are using a TreadDesk.
- 2) Measure where you look straight forward. This should be the top of the screen. Not above it, as the picture kinda suggests.
- 3) A standard cinder block is fifteen and 1/2 inches tall
- 4) I had to use a hammer and chisel to cut larger cinder blocks in half to get an eleven and 1/2 inch rise.
