Meet obesity researcher James Levine in this video profile from NOVA’s “The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers.” James’s personal struggle with obesity and his aversion to fitness gyms led him to create the treadmill desk.

He now oversees an obesity research laboratory that works with corporations to help their employees move more while at work, reduce health risks, and become more productive individuals.
