With many nice holiday memories in our luggage, we would like to start with you again after the summer break and live the last quarter of the year successfully and creatively. We have again realized valuable projects with some of our partners, which we would like to introduce to you as an inspiration, as well as some remarkable acoustic products:
Elliptical under Table Ergometer with Bluetooth interface to fitness apps that you can easily connect and loosen with your office chair. Set pedal resistance and you can move and stay fit as much as you want.
The elliptical tread is so gentle and natural that your upper body and muscles are completely free for precise work on the mouse and keyboard. A great feeling. Your hand movements to the mouse or keyboard are just as accurate as usual. (It doesn't wobble!)
Easily transportable by a light weight of only 14.5 kg and reels. Simply lift and move to the next place. The smallest dimensions ensure that the device does not interfere with the table and that you are still free in your usual working movements.
Keep in motion - be healthy and fit - all while working at your desk, reading, writing, playing computer games, watching TV, but also while chilling, surfing, playing games, eating, and much more.

ActiveLifeTrainer - FAQ questions and answers:
You have questions about activeLife Trainer™? We have answers! Worried about whether you are in good enough shape for a workout at your desk? Wondering if you might sweat using activeLife Trainer™ at work? Wondering if using activeLife Trainer™ might be bad for your joints? … or whether you might lose weight using activeLife Trainer™? … here are the answers:
For thousands of years, human work naturally involved physical movement. Ailments such as high blood pressure and diabetes are virtually unknown in hunting and gathering societies, but modern humans are at great risk of developing them. ActiveLife Trainer’s product philosophy is to restore the freedom of physical movement in modern office work settings. With activeLife Trainer, office workers can leisurely stroll through the work day. This under desk elliptical exercise machine’ has a product design which pays tribute to the ancient “Yin-Yang” symbol which signifies overcoming seeming contradictions to signal the symbiosis of mental and physical activity.
One internationally patented feature that’s unique to activeLife Trainer is the office-chair connection plate with its four openings. But what’s the point? Isaac Newton’s Third Law of Motion states that for every force, there is an equal force in the opposing direction. Applied to physical exercise on a mini elliptical or mini cycle, this means that if you push your feet against it - which you’ll do automatically when you use it - the machine will push back at you with an equal force. And if you sit on an office chair with wheels, as soon as you use such a mini machine, in no time at all, you’ll find yourself propelled away from the exercise machine. But by hooking one of the office chair wheels into one of the four connection plate openings, users of activeLife trainer avoid this common problem because the chair securely connects to allow hours of healthy and trouble free use.
Every activeLife Trainer comes equipped with a fully Android and Apple iOS compatible smart sensor operating under the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) standard. This makes it compatible with many fitness wristbands and any Android or Apple smartphone or tablet sold in the last few years. The BLE smart sensor implements the international open standard interface for bicycle speed and cadence so users can track their workouts on this under-desk mini elliptical exercise machine using dozens of free exercise apps such as Wahoo Fitness or Cateye Cycling. Such tracking of activeLife Trainer workouts is often key to keeping users actively engaged because, over time, the workout numbers get really impressive! Many activeLife Trainer users “walk” hundreds of miles per year burning tens of thousands extra calories. That’s why the smart sensor in activeLife Trainer matters … a lot!
Since 2012 numerous studies, including at German research institutes, have tested the effectiveness of our elliptical under-desk exercise machines and have shown that these devices sustainably reduce sedentary time. For details, please see the references to scientific publications below.
Additionally, for the last number of years, we have worked with various stakeholders in developing this, the third generation of elliptical under-desk exercise machines. Among others, we had over 100 international ergonomists from Germany, the US and about 25 other countries try out our machines to give us feedback and suggestions. These have been incorporated into the engineering of this new generation active Life Trainer.
Finally, in this article, we’re addressing some of the differences between activeLife TrainerTM, our elliptical under-desk machine, and treadmill desks which have become popular in the US in the past few years.
Christoph Leonhard, Ph.D. ABPP
is professor of clinical psychology specializing in behavioral medicine at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology at Xavier University of Louisiana in New Orleans, LA. After five years as an instructor at Harvard Medical School he accepted a professorship in Chicago where he has been researching and developing seated elliptical exercise machines to help sedentary office workers to be active at work. The main aspects of his developments are protected by international patents including in the US, China, and Germany.
The efficacy of the elliptical exercise machines developed by Dr. Leonhard, such as activeLife Trainer™, has been proven in several independent scientific studies at well known universities and research institutes in Germany, the US, and the Netherlands. Please find a reference list below:
