Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) March 26, 2008
InventHelp®, America's largest inventor service company, announces that one of its clients, an inventor from Oswego, Ill., has designed a treadmill with an automatic speed-control function. This invention is patented.
The "Treadmill Auto Speed Adjust" could adjust the speed of a treadmill based on a users' stride, which could enable them to run or walk at their own pace. The unit would be equipped with a safety feature that shuts the device off automatically if no weight is detected on the belt. The invention could eliminate having to follow a pre-programmed speed. The device could provide greater flexibility and enjoyment.
The Treadmill Auto Speed Adjust would consist of a treadmill with a speed-control feature that would measure six feet long, three feet wide and four feet high. The sensors along the sides or under the belt would detect the position of the individual standing on the belt and would adjust the speed automatically to help the user maintain that position. If a user falls behind the target zone, the Treadmill Auto Speed Adjust would start to decrease the speed until the individual is back into the target zone. Optical sensors could be integrated to detect torso position for commercial treadmills with a bar at each side. Home treadmills without side rails could have sensors installed below the belt to detect foot impact. The system can be used in conjunction with fixed speed settings, if desired.
InventHelp® is attempting to submit the invention to companies for review. If substantial interest is expressed, the company will attempt to negotiate for a sale or royalties for the inventor.
