Electric treadmill is the best home simulator
Electric - An indispensable simulator for the home. Each treadmill model of this type has its own basic components, features and functions. It is worthwhile to consider what role each component of this device performs.
Treadmills and criteria for their selection
One of the most important details of the treadmillis the motor. Its continuous power is from 1 to 3 hp. Sometimes the maximum power is specified in the operating parameters. Such a characteristic may not be entirely correct, since it demonstrates what the maximum power is, and not the performance of the simulator during operation.
The area of the simulator, on which the athlete runs,is called a deck. It is under the moving tape. This component of the simulator is made of synthetic materials or laminated wood. The strength of the base of the simulator and its depreciation depend on the thickness of the deck. If there is a two-way deck, the operating time is doubled.
The running belt or tape is exposedwear on a part of the treadmill, therefore it must be replaced periodically. The tapes consist of usually 1-2 layers. The most common are two-layer linens, because they are better. The optimum width of the canvas is 40-50 cm, and the length is -110-150 cm and more.
For the function of control and transmission of information inThe control panel responds to the treadmill. The panel has buttons that control the functions of the simulator, and information screens that provide users with information about speed, distance, pace and time.
It is worth paying attention to depreciation. Manufacturers are most often produced , which has a high degree of depreciation, whichreduces the strain on the joints during training. This is achieved through various suspension systems, flexible decks and frames. Choose a model with a high degree of depreciation costs people who undergo rehabilitation, having problems with the spine or joints. But if you are a professional athlete and train for walking or cross-country running, to get training closer to real conditions, you should abandon simulators with strong depreciation.
Most treadmills have a speed of 1up to 16 km / h. There are also models that accelerate to 19 km / h or more. But most users will be quite enough and 13 km / h. Professional athletes, of course, will need a more high-speed treadmill.
