Training on Rodby treadmills

brings a number of benefits for training, improvement and follow-up

Tilde Bångman

Ability and improvement

One of the great advantages of the treadmill is that the training becomes very standardized, i.e. the conditions are constant.

Hedda Bångman

Threshold training

Threshold training is used to push the so-called lactic acid threshold, ie the point when the body begins to form lactic acid (lactate).

Pulse-controlled training

With a Rodby treadmill is that you can easily control the intensity you want to train, this by you can have both slope and speed constant.

Hedda Bångman

Improve VO2 max

To improve their VO2 max i.e. maximum oxygen uptake capacity is simple while it is possible to feel safe in the security belt.

Technique training

The practitioner is stationary, which allows effective technique training. Get real-time feedback from a coach, camera solutions or mirrors.

Löpband RL2500E x 700

Exercise on GPX-tracks

Rodby's treadmill gives you the ability to import a GPX file created by a GPS device. Then you can train on the simulated course.

Rodby Control System 2.0

Rodby Styrsystem 2.0
All new treadmills from Rodby are delivered with Control System 2.0 including computer and touch screen. The system interface is English. Older treadmills can be upgraded to Control System 2.0 (see Prices treadmills, options and upgrades). All conveyor belts that are delivered with Control System 2.0 have Pulse Control of belt speed as standard. The interface to Control System 2.0 can be operated via the touch screen or keyboard and computer mouse. You choose what suits you best for the moment. When the control system is to be used next to the treadmill, touch control is preferred. It is also possible to control a treadmill with Control System 2.0 via the Remote Control option with Bluetooth® – which means that you do not have to let go of the focus on training. An external communication via the Trackmaster RS-232 protocol can also control the treadmill. The interface has two languages: Swedish and English.

Security

Rodby takes the safety of the user of the treadmill very seriously. To ensure high safety, there is an emergency stop system on all Rodby’s treadmills. The system consists of an IEC-standard pushbutton switch connected to the treadmill control system. The push button is easy to reach for test leaders and practitioners.

Rodby also provides several emergency stop systems as an option. The most common is the Emergency Stop Framework with Auto Stop functionality or a Separate Auto Stop (requires roof or wall mounting). The practitioner usually wears a harness or a waist belt that is connected to the treadmill’s Emergency Stop Framework. If the practitioner should trip or not be able to do more and get too far back on the mat, the automatic emergency stop will trigger and the treadmill will stop. The treadmill can also be equipped with an Extra Auto Stop on the handrails or a Pull Auto Stop in front that is mounted on the front railing.

Aquatrot

Physiotherapy rehabilitation of dogs with treadmill submerged in water tank

Rodby Aquatrot is a machine for physiotherapy rehabilitation of dogs where the treadmill is submerged in a water tank. The water tank has a door in the rear with a lock which is operated by the foot so that the therapist can handle the dog with his hands.

Unique to Rodby Aquatrot is that you can run continuous tests and rehabilitation sessions without other interruption than replacing the dog. It is because the Rodby Aquatrot has a continuous purification of the water. Our competitors have to make a pause of about 20 minutes to clean the water before a new dog can be admitted. This means greater efficiency in operations with many four-legged patients.

Delivery and Installation

Rodby products are well conceived in many ways and we recognize that the delivery and installation in an existing buildings always is an important parameter to take into account. Rodby treadmills are delivered unassembled in parts on a delivery wagon and assembled and installed on site.

Winter sports center in Östersund is the prime example. There we installed Rodby’s largest treadmill without effect on the historic building and the treadmill could be taken through existing doors without problems.
