Treadmill and Cardio Exercise System

 | Post date: 2017/05/22 | 

Motion analysis of running and its measurements are restricted by the limited length of walkway. To overcome this problem, we use a treadmill in front of the cameras so that all markers can be captured. Treadmill based gait analysis offers a potential advantage over the traditional methods, as well as many other benefits; such as controlling environmental constraints, adjusting the desired speed, acquiring more consecutive strides, and improving trial-to-trial and session reliability. However, we are aware of the subtle differences between treadmill and over ground walking, from the dynamical systems theory perspective.

At the Biomechanics Lab. we have a DST 2000 Treadmill (made in Iran) with the following specifications:
