Walkolution founders Ackermann and Söhngen
Once upon a time in 2005, a visionary medical student named Eric Söhngen crafted the very first prototype of what we now know as the treadmill desk. Fast forward to 2017, when Dr. Eric Söhngen (meanwhile a senior medical doctor), alongside his trusty companion Frank Ackermann, established Walkolution, weaving their innovation into reality. To this day, the dynamic duo continues to lead the company with innovation and passion as managing directors.
Walking is the best medicine.
Sedentary lifestyles are the modern-day equivalent of smoking, with far-reaching health implications beyond back pain and weight gain. Our susceptibility to life-threatening diseases such as cancer, heart attack, stroke, depression, and dementia spike significantly due to excessive sitting. Regrettably, viable solutions to counteract this problem remain elusive, despite the abundance of scientific evidence highlighting its risks.
In our sedentary world, finding practical solutions to counteract the health risks associated with sitting for long periods remains elusive. Enter the innovative concept of walking while working - but this isn't your average treadmill and desk situation. Picture a stylish, eco-friendly setup designed for ultimate noise reduction, with intuitive speed control that adjusts with your every move. Imagine a depth-adjustable table, perfect for stopping and leaning, as you please. This seamless integration of movement and productivity lets your mind flourish, enhancing your mental potential without stealing focus. Step into the future of workspace wellness!
Medical specialist and Walkolution founder Dr. Eric Soehngen decided to develop exactly this solution with Walkolution. With co-founder Frank Ackermann and a growing international team, Walkolution is writing a new chapter in German innovation history.
