The RTM 600 Rehabilitation Treadmill by Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. is designed for physical therapy applications in orthopedics, sports medicine, athletic training and conditioning. The RTM 600 is the only treadmill to offer a true zero starting speed, 1/10 mph speed increments over a range of 0-10 mph, plus a powered incline and decline in both forward and reverse directions. The RTM 600 has recently been enhanced with new features which include: A 50 percent larger display at 12.1 inches; expanded connectivity with the ability to connect to an external computer monitor, including larger displays and LCD projectors, enhancing interaction with vision-impaired patients; and upgraded operation software.
The RTM 600 is extremely versatile and perfect for exercise with acute post-operative, neurologic, cardiopulmonary, respiratory, orthopedic/sports medicine and older adult patients in need of strengthening and aerobic conditioning. With a zero starting speed and small, precise speed increments, the RTM 600 is also ideal for pediatric applications with specialized handrails and a display that tilts to ensure easy viewing.
Use uphill or downhill for walking or jogging to emphasize specific muscle groups or motions, retro-walking will promote the use of reciprocal muscle groups not normally exercised during forward walking alone. Other beneficial features of the RTM 600 include heart rate monitoring with Polar® handgrips, preprogrammed or custom designed profiles as well as the ability to store therapy sessions for future use in the memory, for instant recall.
