Exercisers, Aerobic, Treadmill

Definition : Aerobic exercisers designed to allow the user to exercise by walking and/or running on a moving belt. These devices typically consist of a continuous tread made of polymeric material and electric motors to move the belts, but the belts, may be moved by the user while walking or jogging (passive treadmills); a monitor that displays workout feedback such as speed, time, calories burned, and heart rate; and controls for the belt speed and slope. Treadmill exercisers are used to increase cardiovascular endurance by keeping the heart and pulmonary rate elevated for a continuous period of time. Additionally, they provide strength and endurance to muscles used while walking or running (i.e., quadriceps, hamstrings, calf, gluteus). Dedicated treadmills intended for use immersed in water for hydrotherapy systems that allow remote control of the speed and slope of the belt by clinicians, and/or treatmills that include monitoring devices for patient physiologic parameters (e.g., electrocardiogram, heart rate) are available.
