That will be an excellent thing of generating the ener gy and then reusing it within the office . It is no necessar that we reuse the energy in very big form even utilization in the minute sence can help to contribute a lot .

No doubt its an excellent thing for people spending whole day on office desk. Sitting in one place without any exercise is not good for health at all . This device if placed in office under work desk canadd a great value to the employees

Exactly, shehan, and with all the ideas for energy harvesting these days and I don't think it would be so hard to figure out a way to harvest this energy.

Hi Charles, The upper legs do the pushing but the device is low enough such that the knees do not hit the desk- that has been the primary objective. Please feel free to email me at arnavdalmia@gmail.com and we could talk more about it if you would like!

@Charles – I think we need to try one of these units so that we could understand it better.
