Like their positioning in the exercise equipment field, LifeSpan focuses on offering middle-of-the-road treadmill desk solutions that are of decent quality at a reasonable price, but their DNA is clearly that of an exercise equipment manufacturer, not an office furniture manufacturer. A consistent DNA marker with treadmill desk manufacturers is if they offer their treadmill bases for sale standalone, without a desk. LifeSpan does, and we strongly encourage you to read our detailed review of the LifeSpan TR800, T1200 and TR5000 treadmill bases in addition to this review to learn all about their core technology. The treadmill base, after all, is where the rubber truly meets the road.
LifeSpan TR1200-DT3 Treadmill Desk Review
TR1200 is reliable, well-designed, and relatively soft on the wallet—a combination of quality and cost-efficiency that we've found hard to beat. While other treadmills have it beat feature for feature, individuals looking for a basic, low-cost treadmill base that will last for years will find the TR1200 suits their needs perfectly. In the years since its introduction to the market the TR1200 has become the most popular base used in walking workstations, usually in concert with an adjustable height desk, such as a ThermoDesk Elite or Omega Everest.
Signature Treadmill Desk Review
Signature may know how to make very fine-looking adjustable-height desk furniture. Now that they've wisely gotten out of the treadmill base business and have chosen to OEM the LifeSpan treadmill bases instead we have no complaints there. LifeSpan makes the best OEM walking treadmill bases around. However the company's reputation is muddled by the use of all sorts of unusual dealer and marketing fronts, as well as patently false marketing claims.
