View Full Version : Request for advice on purchasing an instrumented treadmill

11-11-2008, 08:17 PM
Dear all,

We are looking to purchase a research quality instrumented treadmill principally for investigations into running. Given the intended applications, speeds up to approx. 20-25 mph and a gradient range +/-20-25% are important features.

I would appreciate any advice or suggestions regarding model, company, price, general pros and cons with regards to experiences people have had using such equipment. I would be grateful if these could be emailed to me at s.forrester@lboro.ac.uk. I will post a summary of the responses.

Many thanks,



Dr Steph Forrester
