The Main Features and Benefits of iMovR ThermoTread
The ThermoTread GT is a kind of a Frankenstein, a creature born from an adjustable standing desk and a treadmill. You might have thought that in such a case, it will belong neither to the office environment nor to the gym. However, the iMovR ThermoTread GT proves this assumption wrong, especially in regard to the office. This treadmill office desk is the quietest of all existing on the market treadmill desks with just 42.7 dB, meaning it will not disrupt any working activity. The iMovR Treadmill desk is also a very compact treadmill stand-desk with just 67.5”*28.35”. A short deck is just enough for pacing.
Built to last long
We all know that some treadmills are designed only for running, and when used for prolonged walking, they might break down due to motor or controller board burnout that happens too early in the day. The engineers at iMovR worked hard to specifically design all the ThermoTread parts to fit for walking speeds, a pace of 1-2 mph.
To achieve a better walking speed compatibility of the ThermoTreads, we used a high-quality 1”-thick Bakelite material for the deck. We added a few adjustments so your “walking while working” experience would be at its highest. In regard to the motor, we specifically chose the quietest one and added a cooling fan. This way, you can never tell if the treadmill is working even under round-the-clock use. Since the treadmill is for working and no one is going to train their running skills on it, the deck got shortened to fit in any corner of the office, under any desk—this way, we save up space for other competing units in the office. What also helps to ergonomically put the treadmill into the office is the two wheels for easy sliding underneath any standing desk, as well as the lowered deck for better stability.
Most gym-oriented treadmills use obsolete and fast degrading membrane keypads for the desktop console controls. The same goes for all existing treadmill standing desks, except for the iMovR ThermoTread GT, the first treadmill desk with a smartphone-like console. The sleek desktop console will not stand out from the plethora of laptops, tablets, and smartphones present in any modern office environment. But what is more important is that you may operate the touch-screen LCD embedded into the console like any other mobile device.
Whatever you want to check on the screen — your walking speed, distance, time, calories burnt — no need to press one million buttons that absorb your sweat just to get this one number. Our engineers made the software as easy to navigate as any smartphone. There are easy to interpret display icons, as well as a convenient way to store and get your saved user data.
Let’s admit it, and no one ever likes to go through solid data of laws. But someone has to do it. And the lawyers will be the ones most satisfied with the iMovR ThermoThread GT. During the development of the treadmill, we consulted hundreds of lawyers on their experience with treadmills, especially after the cases of injuries while using ones. And based on our findings, we made the treadmill never exceed 2.5 mph to eliminate almost all possible treadmill injuries. At such speed, no one has ever filed an injury claim.
To avoid accidental running of the treadmill, we added a liability waiver “clickwrap” like in the cars for GPS navigation. This, never seen in any other treadmill feature, lowers the risks of potential injuries and keeps a record of the treadmill usage.
The first of its kind
Since the ThermoTread is the only one of its kind on the market so far, we just have to give you an idea of what you should expect from all the smarts this treadmill has. We aim to add a feature called iMovR CloudStation in the form of a long power bar made specifically to have all your electrical standing desk devices together. You will be able to switch on and off the power plugs separately when you want to leave the office or merely need to charge your smartphone or laptop. No other movements are needed. Just tap on the console, and you keep running.
The main plug is for the treadmill since it has to scan, analyze the user’s pace and give precise information on the overall treadmill “health.” The iMovR CloudStation will store all this information (the distance you have walked, your pace, and velocity) so that you can retrieve it when you need it. In comparison to fitness bracelets and other devices, the iMovR CloudStation is going to keep the exact precision and synchronize data automatically so no data will be lost if a user forgets to click the “save” button.
The data stored in the cloud can be shared with your wellness advisor, personal fitness bracelet and used for further analytics. Moreover, since it will measure the friction levels, the cloud system will tell you when to lubricate the belt so that your treadmill is going to last forever.
NEATTM (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) has certified the ThermoTread GT as a device helping you fight the drawbacks of sitting the whole day in front of the computer. The treadmill helps to lead the studies on sedentary lifestyle and its effect on our health and lives.
