The Perfect Pairing
iMovR is pleased to offer the Unsit Office Treadmill by InMovement—the highest performance, quietest, safest, most ergonomic and most stable under desk treadmill available today.
While you can pair an Unsit Office Treadmill with any standing desk that has at least 40" of free space between the lifting columns, any iMovR desk model with a 53"-wide desktop or greater will be a perfect match. And with our Lander line you can accommodate the Unsit Office Treadmill side-by-side with a regular office chair for a classic "sit-stand-walk workstation," by choosing a desktop that is 83", 89" or 95" wide.
With a low step-up height of only 5", the Unsit treadmill is ideally paired with a standing desk that has an extra-high top-end reach. Only iMovR offers 6" height extenders on all our made-to-order standing desks (Lander, Lander Lite and Jaxson) to give you that extra ergonomic range and increased desk stability, particularly for taller users.
Another unique aspect of iMovR standing desks is our patented SteadyType Keyboard Tray, designed specifically for treadmill desk users. SteadyType improves the user's comfort when typing while walking, eliminates ergonomic injury potential, and restores the same typing accuracy and speed as when sitting or standing, all without inducing undue vibration into the desk from even the most aggressive keystrokes. SteadyType is available as a built-in option on the Lander, or as an add-on to any of our other desk models (and over 90% of other standup desks sold) with the SteadyType Exo. We offer 79 different surfaces on our SteadyType products to match our 79 desk finishes in 3D-laminate and solid wood.
55% More Usable Walking Space
The unique form factor of the Unsit treadmill is 50% wider than any other walking treadmill. And it also features a shorter deck that takes up less room in your office. With a top speed of 2.0mph, the Unsit is a true "office treadmill," in no way related to cardio running treadmills, and that means the extra deck length is really an unnecessary waste. Instead, the extra width allows the user to more comfortable move around in front of their workstation without stepping into the side rails.
Designed For The Office, Not The Gym
The Unsit Office Treadmill is built to last. Where most other under desk treadmills are just re-skinned running treadmills designed for much easier motor loads, the powerful 2.0HP, 4000 RPM motor in the Unsit is properly geared for high torque at low speeds, since it has to be able to overcome the forces of a "dead weight" on the belt (versus when the runner's kicking actually assisting the motor to turn). There's a reason that running treadmills quickly burn out when used as treadmill desks, because their gearing and motor torque curves are poorly matched for walking at only 1-2 mph.
The heavy-gauge steel used in the Unsit is the same as you'll find on expensive commercial-grade gym treadmills as opposed to cheap home use machines. Everything about the Unsit's design from its library-quiet sound signature to its frame rigidity to its power train that is tuned for high torque at low speeds make it stand apart from all other treadmill desk bases on the market today.
The Safest Office Treadmill Ever Built
True productivity at a treadmill desk is about keeping your body moving while even more productive (and healthy) than merely standing, much less sitting. For optimal NEAT human performance, a typical speed range when treadmill desking is 1-2 mph. The Unsit launches at a super safe 0.3 mph and gradually spins up to your selected walking speed. With a top speed of 2.0 mph you'll be sure to maintain a NEAT cardio rate and not get to an exertion where your muscles will steal all that extra oxygen meant for the brain. Staying in NEAT range is what makes treadmill desk users never go back to just sitting and standing, once they experience how the productivity, mood and energy boost of walking in the NEAT range while working.
The Unsit also has two digital weight sensors embedded in the deck. These enable to important safety features. The treadmill will not start unless at least 50 lbs of weight is detected, so children and pets cannot accidentally start the machine on their own. If the user steps off the treadmill without first turning it off the unit will instantly shut itself off when it detects no weight on the deck, for another added measure of safety.
Even though it's impossible to drive the Unsit any faster than 2.0 mph, as required for safety certification the Unsit also has an emergency stop lanyard that you can place anywhere underneath the desktop and then clip to your clothing.
Sleek & Simple Controls Coupled with a Smartphone App
After the first few weeks of falling in love with their treadmill desk, most users really just want to start the unit up at their preferred speed and let it automatically turn off when they step away. The simple and small desktop console has only an on/off button surrounded by multi-color LEDs, that you turn to set the desired treadmill speed. This saves on desktop real estate and makes it incredibly simple to use the treadmill.
The console has a Bluetooth feature, however, which means you can connect to the treadmill to get all your basic readouts such as step count, miles walked, calorie burn, average speed, time walking and even time standing (since both are "unsitting time"). Data collected in the app can be shared with your Fitbit or Apple Health profiles, since we know that treadmill desk time is very difficult for most wearables to measure when your wrists are resting on a keyboard, not swinging back and forth.

Here's how the return process works:
E-mail email@example.com obtain a written authorization/approval PRIOR to sending the product back. No returns will be processed without prior written authorization.
Items must be returned un-damaged and in good condition within ten business days of receiving written authorization from InMovement, and MUST BE REPACKED IN THE ORIGINAL PACKAGING and on the ORIGINAL PALLET.
Customer pays for the cost of the return freight to InMovement which varies depending on where you are located. Expect to pay between $280 and $500 for return freight. InMovement can help arrange for a freight company to pick up the product once it is packaged in its original carton. Return pick-ups are scheduled during normal business hours only.
Once InMovement receives your returned product, they will inspect the treadmill and then authorize iMovR to credit your purchase using the original form of payment within 10 business days of receiving the product at the InMovement warehouse.

In the Lower 48 United States the UnSit Treadmill is shipped via Fedex Freight from InMovement's warehouse in Indianapolis. The treadmill is shipped in ruggedized packaging on a freight pallet for maximum protection. You will receive a FedEx Freight tracking number from iMovR Customer Care once your treadmill is underway.
Please note that if you purchased an iMovR standing desk bundled with the Unsit Treadmill these items ship separately from different locations by different carriers, and you will receive separate tracking codes.
There are three different shipping options for the Unsit Treadmill:
- CURBSIDE DELIVERY (FREE)
The Freight Carrier will deliver the treadmill onto your property, but they are not obligated to bring it inside your home or office.
Once on your property, cut the black bands that hold the treadmill to the pallet. You can either unpack the treadmill and wheel it in on a dolly or on the treadmill’s front wheels (like a wheelbarrow), OR, two people can carry the whole box inside by lifting the carton by the yellow bands, then unpack it once inside. In some cases, it is better to move the treadmill in while it is still in the carton as you can drag the carton on its side and the treadmill will be protected. In other cases it is better to remove the treadmill from the carton outside and have two strong people carry and wheel it in.
- INSIDE DELIVERY ($199)
The Freight Carrier will call you to schedule a time window for delivery. The driver will move the treadmill inside your home or office to a room of your choice. NOTE: In commercial office buildings the driver is only obligated to bring the treadmill past the “first threshold” of the building (usually the first "covered area"). They may not bring it up elevators, up flights of stairs or down long corridors.
- WHITE GLOVE SERVICE ($499)
InMovement will contract with a qualified treadmill technician in your area, ship your treadmill to them and they will schedule an appointment to install it exactly where you want it. The White Glove Service provider will remove all packaging materials unless you want to keep them.

General Treadmill Questions:
The Unsit Treadmill is designed to fit under any standing desk with at least 40″ of space between the lifting columns. The only other hard requirement is that there are no crossbars below one foot off the floor. Because the treadmill adds 5″ to your height, we always recommend standing desks with higher max heights, like the iMovR desks listed below, especially for taller users.
While you can use virtually any standing desk that will fit the Unsit underneath, the ergonomics of working while walking are more rigorous than for sitting or standing, and so we always recommend one of iMovR's SteadyType-equipped desks, or mounting an add-on SteadyType Keyboard Tray to any existing standup desk for the best typing accuracy, comfort and prevention of ergonomic injuries.

iMovR offers a variety of Treadtop Seats that are safe to use on top of a treadmill, and won’t damage the walking belt. The stools are great for shorter stints of sitting and they encourage you to keep your core muscles engaged, while the chairs are more comfortable for longer periods of sitting or for those who need ergonomic adjustability.
We recommend against using chairs with wheels or feet that have sharp edges; they can compromise the integrity of the walking belt.
If your standing desk is wide enough, you can fit a regular caster-base office chair side-by-side with the Unsit. For example, the iMovR Lander desk in a 83″, 89″, or 95″ width works perfectly for a "sit-stand-walk" workstation configuration (these have at least 70″ of free space between the columns).
The Unsit Treadmill was designed for a 24/7 duty cycle, so it has no limitations on periods of use like some other office treadmills do. As for your body, we recommend a "break-in period" of a couple of weeks, because walking with your hands tethered to a keyboard does employ a slightly different set of muscles versus typical walking. You’ll want to give those muscles a chance to build up strength gradually, and be careful not to overdo it out of the gate.
A good regimen is to start out with walking for two 30-minute sessions a day, and work your way up from there. Add 5 to 10 minutes a day for each session until you work up to 90 minutes per session. Be sure to take sitting and standing breaks in between. The best break of all is actually a 5–10 minute brisk walk outdoors or around the building, combined with some stretching and rehydration. Even though you'll never sweat when walking at 2.0 mph or less, it's important to respect treadmill desking as you would any other active movement and avoid dehydration.
Most "power users" reach about 5 hours a day of treadmill desk time. This varies by an individual's overall physical fitness level, of course. Many find that 1–2 hours a day is already a game changer in their stamina, concentration, and even elevated mood.
Here's a pro hack from our most experienced treadmill deskers who've been doing it for 15 years:
- Leave your workstation at standing height when you're done for the day, so you start your morning standing.
- Switch to walking when your legs have had enough; the calves will pump blood that has pooled in the legs and feet back up to the brain, encouraging higher focus and productivity.
- When tired of walking, sit for a spell, then repeat the sequence throughout the day.
- Sitting, standing, or walking for too long at a time is unhealthy. Remember that "your best position is your next position" and try to spend no more than 30–90 minutes in each posture.
While distance and step count are fun to track for those of us who are into "personal quantification," in the opinions of most health coaches that are familiar with treadmill desking, the most important metric of all is how many fewer hours of sitting your body has endured because you now have the option of walking while remaining productive!
Because the Unsit Treadmill only goes up to the recommended 2.0 mph top speed for NEAT activity, your stride length will be relatively short. Longer decks are only needed for running at much higher speeds, so any "runway behind you" is unnecessarily taking up more floor space in your office at best, and creating a trip hazard at worst.
With a 40″-long deck, we've yet to have a customer who found the Unsit to be too short. However, we do want to note that the placement of the treadmill relative to the desk needs to match the primary user's stride length. The taller the individual, the more likely they’ll want to have the treadmill a little further back from the wall in order to remain centered on the deck. And to put it bluntly, that "beer belly" you’re aiming to shrink might also dictate moving the treadmill a couple of inches further back. See our setup video for more information on ideal placement.
The caveat in all this is if a unit is to be shared by multiple users with significantly different anthropometries (body proportions), you may find it necessary to shift the treadmill in or out when switching users. This is easy to do by lifting it from the back and rolling the Unsit like a wheelbarrow on the two caster wheels at the front end. Most of the treadmill's weight is in the front of the treadmill and supported by the caster wheels, but be sure to use a proper lifting technique to avoid low back injury.
Yes. Remember, the point here is not to get into a cardio exercise heartbeat range, which would be completely counterproductive. The treadmill desk was invented at The Mayo Clinic. Based on their many years of research the "NEAT" sweet spot (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) is to walk within the range of 1.0–2.0 mph. To give you an idea of what that’s like, full walking speed is 3.3 mph. So it’s more like pacing on the phone than actual cardio walking.
We recommend taking a moment to read about iMovR's research collaboration with the Mayo Clinic, and to discover some simple facts about NEAT movement, such as how many calories you can burn while using a standing desk or treadmill desk.
While walking faster or at an incline may be tempting, moving into higher heart rates (i.e. beginning to sweat) will diminish the benefits that treadmill desk users get quickly addicted to, namely higher focus and productivity than when sitting, or even standing. Once you transition into true exercise, instead of all that extra oxygen flow to the brain it starts going to your muscles instead. And that's what the gym's cardio running treadmills are intended for, not office treadmills.
No, because the Unsit Treadmill has two digital weight sensors built into the deck. It will automatically slow to a stop the moment the user steps off. As an added safety benefit around children and pets, the Unsit Treadmill will not start unless someone weighing over 50 lbs is standing on the deck.
To restart the treadmill, simply press the controller wheel when you get back on to resume at the same speed.
Unlike conventional treadmills, the Unsit was specifically designed to be quiet enough to be used in a library. We measured the decibel level at 42.9dB at ear level with the treadmill going 2.0 mph in a quiet room with hard floors. (Most people use the treadmill at speeds closer to 1.0–1.5 mph).
Decibel readings will vary depending on the acoustics of the room. If you're on a hard surface floor (tile or hardwood) it will sound a bit louder. On a soft floor, such as a padded carpet, you'll hardly hear it. If you're in a pitch quiet recording studio you'll hear it. In a normal office environment you probably won't notice the motor at all, but you will hear the user’s footsteps, of course.
If using the Unsit on a solid floor the noise signature can be substantially reduced by using an anti-static equipment mat. These mats also reduce the propensity for dust and dirt to enter through the bottom of the treadmill. They’re also great for use in apartment buildings or on the second story of a home, for example, to reduce the transmission of footstep sounds to people below.
iMovR is working on producing an under-treadmill mat specifically sized for the Unsit (our RightSize mat was designed for our older Thermotread GT model), but if you can’t wait, you can use any equipment mat that’s at least 40″ wide and 60″ long, and cut it down to the size of the Unsit.
The Unsit Treadmill has specially designed wheels that carry most of the weight of the treadmill and engage immediately when you lift from the rear, making it very easy to maneuver. It is not practical to move the treadmill frequently. If you want to move it out of the way every time you want to switch to using a chair, take a look at the question above, "Where will I sit?"
Yes, but because standing on a hard deck can become quickly uncomfortable, we highly recommend using an Ecolast Anti-fatigue Mat, such as our 20″×32″ Economy Mat that is perfectly sized for the Unsit's 30″-wide deck, or our 18″×22″ Ecolast Portable Mat. (See every color and size of standing mat that iMovR offers.)
Unsit Tracking App:
The app tracks steps, distance, time, calories, standing time, and "Total UnSit Time," which is the total time you walked and/or stood on the Unsit Treadmill. The app runs on Android tablets and phones as well as iOS iPhones, but not iPads. The app automatically sends its data to Apple Health and/or to your Fitbit account and to our web app, where an accumulation of all steps taken by UnSit users is displayed on top of our website. Simply download the UnSit App from the Apple App Store or Google Play, place your smartphone on your desk, launch the App and tap the "connect" button. (Make sure your phone's Bluetooth is enabled.)
The UnSit App is most accurate because FitBit and Apple Health just estimate steps using the accelerometer in their device to sense the swing of your arm. From that step count they estimate the distance covered assuming you covered about 2.3 feet per step. However, the UnSit App receives exact data from the treadmill. The treadmill senses each foot strike and transmits each step to the App. The treadmill accurately measures the distance the belt has moved and transmits the distance separately to the App.
- Are the LED lights on the controller blinking? If YES, continue, if NO, skip to the next section...
- Are you standing on the belt?
- If not, try standing on the belt. (the treadmill won't operate without someone on the treadmill)
- If you ARE standing on the belt and it still won’t start then re-calibrate the weight sensor (see instructions below)
Video: Power Troubleshooting
- Check that the red "on/off" switch on the front of the treadmill is switched on. It will light up RED when it is on. If the red switch does NOT light up then there is no power reaching the treadmill.
- Check that the treadmill’s power cord is plugged into a working electrical outlet. You can verify your outlet is working by plugging in another appliance. Note that some outlets can be "switched" by a light switch, intended for a floor lamp. Usually moving the plug to the other outlet that is not "switched" will do the trick.
- Check that the circuit breaker located next to the power switch has not popped out. If it has popped out, press it firmly back in.
- Check that the red lanyard is securely connected into the Emergency Stop mechanism under your desk. You will feel it click and lock itself into place when secure. If you lost your lanyard, call or email us for a replacement.
- Check that the black telephone cable that connects the Emergency Stop mechanism to the black controller box is securely plugged on BOTH ends. The telephone cable plugs into the back of the white emergency Stop mechanism under your desk and the other end plugs into the back of the black controller box on your desktop.
- Check that the black coiled cable from the treadmill is securely plugged into the back of the controller box by pressing on the white 12-pin connector. You may need a small Phillips head screwdriver to remove the cable clamp on the back of the controller.
If you have determined that the weight sensors are not functioning (see above), you can recalibrate them following these directions. There is also a video here showing this procedure. The procedure is:
- Make sure no one is standing on the belt during this procedure.
- Turn off the power at the switch on the base of the treadmill.
- While holding down the Pause/Resume button (⏯) turn the power on.
- Continue holding down ⏯ until all lights flash ORANGE, then lights 1-5 light up RED.
- When lights 1–5 are lit up RED, you are in engineering mode and one of the 5 lights will be blinking.
- Turn the ⏯ knob until the FIRST (bottom) LED is blinking red, then press the ⏯ button again. The first LED will now flash GREEN followed by lights 5–8 and then lights 1–4. This will repeat 3 times, then all lights will light ORANGE, indicating a successful calibration. (YOU DID IT!)
If the series of lights did not flash green, then repeat this procedure. Once successfully completed the treadmill should operate normally.
Video: Calibrating Weight Sensors
Adjust the belt using per the directions on pages 23–24 of the Owner's Manual. You will need the blue-handled Allen key wrench that came with your treadmill. If you cannot find the blue handled Allen key wrench you can use any common 6mm Allen key wrench from a hardware store.
If necessary, an experienced treadmill technician can make this adjustment. Contact UnSit for a referral to a technician near you.
- Look to see if the belt has wandered all the way to one side of the treadmill. You will see a black strip on one side and the belt running under the metal side rail on the other side. If this is the case, adjust the belt per the directions above.
- If the belt appears to be centered, then check to make sure no foreign objects have fallen behind or underneath the treadmill and are rubbing on the belt. On newly installed treadmills this tends to be a stray piece of styrofoam from the Unsit’s packaging.
This may be a bad ball bearing inside the rollers. You’ll need to have an experienced treadmill technician check it and perhaps replace the roller. Call InMovement for a referral to a technician near you: 833-987-6683
