Type & Tread came to life during a particularly long, cold Canadian winter. Jessie (co-owner of Type & Tread), a stay-at-home and work-at-home mom to a then 1.5 year old, was feeling frustrated with not being able to walk outside. It was too cold to be out for very long and the toddler now refused to sit in the stroller. Since her work was computer and online based, she thought it would be a perfect solution to walk while she worked, at naptime and after the wee child went to bed at night. The Type & Tread idea was born!
Ideas were mapped out on how to create an easy to add & remove desk for the treadmill. After many attempts with different materials and dimensions, the Type & Tread was ready.The Type & Tread is a portable treadmill desk. It is a lightweight, 7-pound, simple set-up system that fits most treadmills. Type & Tread turns your treadmill into a work station so you can keep your body and brain in motion while you work, write, meet and talk.
