Re: TREADMILL WITH TACTILE BUTTONS


Carolyn Arnold
 

The bar goes across the front, and rails are on each side - would not have one without rails. If that were unobtainable, I'd go forever without a treadmill. I've had motorized and regular, prefer just plain regular treadmill. Right now, no room in apartment for one.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

Okay, enlighten me. What is the difference between bars and rails? Pam.

Most of the ones I have seen still have bars, but not as many have rails anymore.

I never had a problem staying centered on a treadmill, but I have heard that they took the bars off most of them. Pam.

I read an article a while back that compared treadmills for blind runners. The control panel was a big concern, However, Staying centered on the actual treadmill was the biggest problem. It's hard to run holding on to a bar. Some people tied pieces of rope along the machine so that they could get a feel for where they were on the treadmill itself so they didn't fall off of it.
I'm not sure what has been done to make treadmills safe for blind users, but I'd ask about that as well as the actual controls.

Hi. It all depends on how much you wish to spend and where you are

I have a reebok z9 treadmill. The programmes are not accessible but
on the arms on the lift is the incline up and down buttons and each
press gives a beep. On the right is the speed buttons, up and down
and again, each press gives a beep. With the up and down speed
buttons each press increases your speed by .1 mph, so 5.2mph, 5.3mph,
5.4mph etc. On the screen there are buttons for all the functions but
they are only slightly raised but it would be difficult to tell which
is which as there is so many so I got help to place a little ball of
bluetack immediately above the 3.7mph button, the
3.2
mph and a third but I can't remember the speed. Also there is start
and stop buttons. When you press the start button you get a five
second countdown before the belt starts moving and there are 5 one
second beeps leading up to the start of the belt. The deck can fold
up to save floor space when not in use. It has nearly a 3hp motor
which gives it lots of power. It also has a 3.5mm socket to plug in a
mp3 or other media player and it will play through the treadmills
integral speakers but I never use them as I'm not impressed with the
sound quality. This treadmill is not cheap as it was nearly £1000 but
I got it here in the UK from Argos which was selling them at half
price. It is a great treadmill and I'm thinking of moving up to the
reebok z10 which is also going for less than half price.
Walter.

Hi All:

Since getting to a gym is a hit-&-miss for me, I want to purchase a
treadmill for use at home! I need one with tactile buttons that I can
feel.
Anyone in the house have any recommendations?

Sincerely,
Olusegun
Denver, Colorado
