The only treadmill to offer true zero starting speed
The RTM Rehabilitation Treadmill is the only treadmill to offer a true zero starting speed, 1/10 mph speed increments over a range of 0-10 mph, plus powered incline and decline in both forward and reverse directions. Extremely versatile, itís perfect for use with acute post-operative, neuro, pediatric, cardiopulmonary, respiratory, seniors and orthopedic/sports medicine patients in need of aerobic conditioning.
Leader in motor control technology
Biodex, the leader in motor control technology for medical applications, uses the same Four Quadrant Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) technology for the Biodex RTM as is used in the world-famous Biodex Dynamometer. With more power and consistent speed control than conventional AC or DC motors, the Rehabilitation Treadmill can operate at the slowest speeds, regardless of weight strain. This advantage proves especially beneficial when treating larger patients in the earliest phases.
The spacious 20" x 64" (50.8 x 160 cm) low profile, Teflon-impregnated running deck has a low step-up and incorporates a shock-absorbing surface to reduce stress and trauma to the lower back and extremities. Add in our Exact-Track belt, which eliminates tracking problems, and itís easy to see why patients who might not be able to tolerate other treadmills can get a head start on the RTM. The Rehabilitation Treadmill is the only treadmill that allows patients to retro-walk while facing forward for more effective proprioception and a greater sense of ease. Retro-walking promotes extension of the knee and dorsiflexion of the foot, which at the same time uses eccentric control of the hamstrings to actively decelerate the joint.
Unusually quiet, easy to operate
The Rehabilitation Treadmill is unusually quiet, easy to operate, offers...a choice of handrail types and can be configured for either 0 to 15% or -3 to 12% incline (RTM500 only). It is the most versatile treadmill available today. The precise, controlled acceleration and deceleration, zero starting speed, and design engineered specifically to meet the demands of physical rehabilitation, make the RTM ideal for a variety of applications.
RTM 400 Treadmill
The Biodex RTM400 is offered with a Numeric Display, a no-nonsense approach with real-time readings for METs, calories, distance and time values. Speed, elevation and belt direction, along with end time for exercise duration, are set at the touch of a button.
RTM 500 Treadmill
The Biodex RTM500 features an intuitive Graphic Display that provides all the control and feedback of the Numeric Display in a graphic representation of real-time values for plotting METs or calories and heart rate. The RTM500 offers both pre-defined and user-defined programmability at any of five different effort levels.
