Rehab can seem like a battle of attrition for clients who may feel the need to summon equal parts of tenacity, focus, and faith in their physical therapist to push through a months-long program. Along that continuum clients are likely to spend time on some of the workhorse technologies of the PT gym. One such well-known technology is the treadmill. Mention that universal piece of workout and rehab equipment, and watch eyes roll at the thought of dull sessions made tolerable only by tunes and TV reruns. Treadmill technologies have been updated, however, to offer exceptional versatility and provide activity sessions that leverage modern design features. Among those features are self-powered capabilities, a weighted sled, resistance parachute, and harness system all in one space-efficient package.
