The amount of pressure displayed along with other information is displayed on the screen embedded in the device so that the therapist is aware of the information while practicing.
Results: The treadmill is also designed in two ways, which can be adjusted automatically to allow the individual to move at their desired speed, as well as to be able to manually move the treadmill by applying pressure through the legs.
Conclusion: This treadmill causes of strengthens the muscles of people with disabilities who have lost their ability to walk for a while and, in addition, their muscles have weakened. Also, the protective waistcoat has a pressure sensor that can be adjusted based on body weight.
