The BBC reports:
Portable pedal machines could be used in every office to improve the health of workers, according to scientists in the US.
Charity Weight Concern said improving the health of workers would also benefit employers' bottom lines.
Now researchers at East Carolina University are investigating mini exercise bikes, which can be used while sat at a desk.
The researchers said: "Portable pedal machines may serve as a tool to reduce sedentary times in the work environment without necessarily influencing the sitting time necessary for performing computer-related tasks."
Meanwhile, the Chief Scientist at the Cycalogical Institute for the Bleedin' Obvious reported that:
"Pedal machines could be used to improve the health of workers, and can be used while travelling to their desk in the morning! They can be used as a tool to reduce sedentary time, without influencing the sitting time necessary for performing computer-related tasks."
Maybe researchers at East Carolina University should get out more...
