Miniature cycling and elliptical trainers are already available and can be used under a conventional desk while you remain seated.
One of the problems with those machines, however, is that your knees may bang against the underside of your desk as you are using them.
The new machine, called Glyder, lets you get desk-bound exercise by gliding your feet horizontally back and forth, 'Gizmag' reported.
The Glyder incorporates electromagnetic resistance to give users more of a workout. The amount of resistance can be set using either a knob on the machine itself or via Bluetooth using an accompanying smartphone app.
The app also lets you monitor calories burned and distance glided. Users can also monitor their progress over time and compete against other Glyder users.
Glyder, invented by New York-based Compactix, requires access to an electrical outlet to work.
