Our patented Ground Effects Impact Control is the same technology used on our commercial treadmills in health clubs the world over. It creates the perfect balance between shock absorption and stride support, reducing joint stress, minimizing fatigue and helping to prevent injury. Shock absorbers at the front of the deck offer extra cushioning based on your weight, to absorb impact where your foot strikes. A pivot point in the back supports a full range-of-motion and provides a solid surface, with some give, to accommodate your individual stride, for an easy push-off.
To support your natural walking or running stride as your foot slows and accelerates during impact and push-off, our technology senses the changes and adjusts the belt speed – up to 57 times a second at 12 mph (19.3 kph). The adjustments ensure you feel a naturally rhythmic stride instead of the shoe and joint discomfort that come with the drag and pull of other treadmills.
