  • Elapsed time display
  • Average speed display-After the end, the average speed is automatically calculated from the total mileage and total elapsed time.
  • Calories burned display-Displays calories burned estimated from weight and mileage.You need to set your weight correctly before you start.
  • Step count / stride / pitch display-Use information from the built-in landing sensor.
  • Measuring heart rate-There are two methods, one is to attach the sensor to the earlobe and the other is to hold the grip sensor on the front.The latter is difficult to measure accurately because the arm cannot be shaken.

Strong Points

Uniform environment

  • It does not depend on the weather.
  • It can be used in an air-conditioned environment.
  • It will be training to run at an even pace (same speed).It also helps prevent overpacing.
  • No worries about traffic accidents.You won't be disturbed by waiting for a traffic light.
  • You can replenish at any time by keeping the beverage at hand. (You must run outdoors with a drink.)

Accurate feedback

  • You can check your own form by running while looking in the mirror.
  • Instructors and scientists can analyze forms with little burden. (No need to run together or get in the car)
  • Various measuring instruments can be attached to the runner.

An environment where you can exercise at home or in your own room

  • Even if you have small children, you can exercise without leaving the house.
  • You can exercise while watching TV.
  • You can exercise while using a personal computer, tablet terminal, mobile phone, etc.


  • I don't have the ability to respond flexibly to uphill and downhill.
  • Since the shock at the time of landing is softer than the ground, it feels strange to run outdoors after getting used to it.
  • It is not suitable for interval training (repeated practice of rapid and slow running) because the speed increase and decrease is slow and button operation is required.
  • The upper limit is 16km / h for home use and 20km / h for business use, so-calledSprintI can't practice the system at all.In addition, there are some special ones that can reach up to 36km / h.
  • Since there is no wind and no air flow from the direction of travel, the body temperature tends to rise unless proper room temperature control is performed.
  • It is easy to get bored because there is no change in the scenery.
  • It is difficult to maintain motivation because there are no rivals around.
  • Noise and vibration cannot be ignored in ordinary households.In particularhousing complexThen it may cause trouble.
  • Not suitable for special exercises other than forward, such as sideways, backward walking, and running.Such driving is prohibited on treadmills because it is dangerous.

    • Of each individualMaximum oxygen uptakeUsed for measuring (VO2max)[3]..While wearing a mask and collecting exhaled gas (oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide emissions)Heart rateAdjust the speed of the treadmill so that is maintained near the maximum heart rate.Maximum oxygen uptake can be obtained by analyzing the exhaled gas in that state.There is also a simple method for estimating maximal oxygen uptake from the correlation between heart rate, velocity, and age without performing breath gas analysis.VOXNUMX max is a simple expression of a person's endurance, so long-distance systemsathleteIs an important indicator for
