Is sitting the new smoking?

Dr Eric Söhngen, WALKOLUTION’s founder, has been studying the risks of sitting and sedentary lifestyles for years and claims it has emerged as a contemporary parallel to smoking or maybe yet worse as it affects every organ system in the body. In an interview with ‘’, he reveals what the true effects of sitting and standing do when performed for a long period of time. Dr Eric Söhngen quotes “Sitting has the most underestimated influence on our brain”.


Back in 2005, an imaginative medical student, Dr Eric Söhngen, envisioned the first-ever prototype of the revolutionary treadmill desk. Years later, in 2017, Dr Eric Söhngen, now a respected senior medical doctor, joined forces with his dedicated partner, Frank Ackermann, to bring their vision to life. Together, they established WALKOLUTION, where their passion for innovation remains unwavering. As managing directors, this dynamic duo continues to steer the company towards new horizons, driven by their unwavering commitment to excellence.

They created the world's first and only manual treadmill with a soft, elastic and springy surface. Motorless and virtually silent, the treadmills are for use in the active workplace and various other environments such as working from home.
