- Swing Arm Cushioning Patented Technology
The patented swing arm shock absorption technology reduces stress impact on the knee, hip joints, lower back and ankles. A mechanical spring system cushions the feet on impact. This helps distribute the impact over a larger area instead of it getting focused on a single area. It also enables the foot to be longer on the deck resulting in increased muscle contraction.
- Running Deck Design
The design of the running deck is important as a limited running area may not be ideal for runners. This treadmill has a complete 20” (width) X 60” (length) running area with a soft cushioning system. The maximum belt speed is 11mph. It is ideally suited for running workouts for users above 6ft in height. A person who doesn’t need to have such high speeds might consider the ProForm Power 995 or Weslo Cadence G5 which both retail for under $1000
