The walking assist treadmill or the elder treadmill
is has been particularly designed for the elderly or senior citizens for walking
and/or rehabilitation; especially for users who require assistance in walking. It
is ideal treadmill for both home and commercial entities where users require a
low start-up speed, extended handrails and a low step-up platform.
The key feature of the elder treadmill is
SAFETY! The user should not only be comfortable but feel secure and safe when
using the treadmill.
FULL LENGTH HANDRAILS
The most important feature of the walking
assist treadmill is the distinctive full-length handrails. Most treadmills have
either one-half or one-quarter handrails. The walking assist treadmill’s
handrails cover the full length of the running belt for safety and support.
Fully extended to the rear of the belt, the handrails also provide support
during entry and exit from the deck of the treadmill.
LOW STEP UP PLATFORM
The walking assist treadmill provides a low
set up access to the treadmill, just 10cm off the ground. It is crucial for
elderly users to step up onto the treadmill without fear of tripping or
slipping. It also helps them to gain confidence in using the equipment.
WIDE RUNNING BELT
The running belt of any treadmill needs to
be long and wide enough for the heaviest, tallest and fittest user and the
width of the running or walking area is even more pertinent for the elderly. With
a width of 51cm, the elderly treadmill offers more comfort, security and safety
to the user.
EXTRA LARGE EMERGENCY BUTTONS
The extra-large emergency buttons provide
safe emergency stop for users with limited upper limb function. Unlike the
normal treadmills, the walking assist treadmill has 2 large buttons,
conveniently located on both sides of the handle bar. They are bright red colored
for improved visibility.
For user safety, it is specifically
designed to resist accidental contact and has a spring-loaded “twist reset” for
reaming. A large red emergency button or the detachment of the safety lanyard
worn by the user will stop the belt immediately for maximum safety.
LOW START UP SPEED
The walking assist treadmill has a low
starting speed and small, precise increments; a slow start speed of 0.2km/h and
you can increase the speed in increments of 0.1km/h. The slow start is perfect
for the elderly, seniors and for those looking to recover from injury.
The console is a vibrant 13.97cm blue back
lit LCD display. It indicates all the important elements of your walking and
workout, including Time, Speed, Distance, Pace and Calories Burnt. It also has
preset buttons for the different speeds for ease of change of speed during your
