The Compactix DeskMate is a simple device that lets you exercise at work. The DeskMate is designed to stimulate your muscles by flexing your arms, back, shoulders, chest, and wrists; it attaches directly to your desk so you can get a workout without leaving your cubicle.

Exercise is a known stress reliever, and the Compactix DeskMate lets you burn calories without disrupting your office neighbors. See more images of this clever device above.

Implications - With more and more North Americans living hectic lifestyles brought on by their professions, many consumers now have little time for leisure activities such as exercise. Products which can be used with little time required or in between activities have thus become highly attractive to consumers.
