I began experimenting with a standing or treadmill desk last summer and have finally gotten around to making the full conversion. Here's how I did it, if I can you can do it too.

Step 1: Procure Treadmill And Desk

I found the treadmill cheap on Craigslist. It's not important what kind of treadmill you choose but it makes your life easier if the hand rails are simply bolted on. I found the desk locally. I got lucky and found an adjustable desk for only $50 locally.
<p>I don't understand how the treadmill works without the control panel. Can you explain how you took that off?</p>
<p>Is it better than Lifespan <strong><a href="http://worklivewalk.com/" rel="nofollow">Treadmill desks</a></strong> &amp; <strong>Standing desks</strong> ? It's simple quite and seems good under $50. Any way good job Cessenberg. </p>
<p>Great luck getting an adjustable desk for $50 anywhere. You struck gold mate.</p>
Where did you get that desk for $50 ???
Yeah I am planning on raising the monitor with a clamp mount which will give me correct monitor height and give me more desk space.
Love it! I'm doing a study right now on insulin resistance and standing desks, incorporating the treadmill is an interesting twist.
Great way to be healthy and get your work done! I had a setup like this before but was too lazy to use it! Then went to the extreme and began doing P90x - so at least I got my fitness in!
It looks like you still need to move the monitor higher. Maybe something like this will help. http://www.amazon.com/HP-BT861AT-Single-Monitor-Arm/dp/B00455GH58/ref=sr_1_14?s=office-products&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1371711849&amp;sr=1-14
