Choosing the Right Rehab Treadmill

When considering a rehab treadmill, it’s important to look for features that cater to rehabilitation needs and offer benefits tailored to your specific goals. Here are some key features and benefits to consider:


  1. Low Speed Range: A rehab treadmill should have a low starting speed to accommodate patients who are recovering from injury or surgery. Look for treadmills with speed settings as low as 0.1 to 0.5 kph to allow for gentle walking or slow rehabilitation exercises.  The lower the start speed the better for Neuro patients looking to retrain their Gait.
  2. Adjustable Incline: Most treadmills offer adjustable incline settings, allowing you to vary the intensity of your workout. This feature can be beneficial for gradually increasing cardiovascular endurance and muscle strength. Incline is sometimes not needed for Neuro patients
  3. Decline Feature: Some rehab treadmills feature decline which offers a versatile training option that targets specific muscle groups, increases calorie burn, reduces joint stress, improves balance and coordination, and provides sports-specific training benefits. (see here a further articled on the expanded benefits of decline treadmill training)
  4. Safety Features: Look for treadmills with safety features such as handrails, emergency stop buttons, and safety key clips. These features help ensure the safety of patients during rehabilitation sessions and provide peace of mind for both patients and therapists.
  5. Shock Absorption System: A cushioned deck or shock absorption system can help reduce impact on joints and minimise the risk of injury during rehabilitation exercises. Look for treadmills with built-in shock absorption technology to provide a comfortable and supportive surface for walking or running.
  6. Wide Walking Surface: A wide walking surface provides ample room for patients to walk comfortably and safely. Look for treadmills with a walking surface width of at least 20 inches to accommodate patients of all sizes and ensure stability during rehabilitation exercises.
  7. User-Friendly Controls: Choose a rehab treadmill with intuitive controls and a user-friendly interface. Patients should be able to easily adjust speed, incline, and other settings without confusion or difficulty.


  1. Improved Mobility and Function: Regular use of a rehab treadmill can help improve mobility, range of motion, and functional ability in patients recovering from injury, surgery, or neurological conditions.
  2. Cardiovascular Conditioning: Rehab treadmills provide a low-impact cardiovascular workout, helping to improve heart health and endurance without putting excessive strain on joints or muscles.
  3. Muscle Strengthening: Walking or performing rehabilitation exercises on a treadmill can help strengthen muscles in the legs, hips, and core, aiding in recovery and rehabilitation.
  4. Pain Management: Controlled movement on a rehab treadmill can help reduce pain and discomfort associated with musculoskeletal conditions or injuries, allowing patients to gradually increase activity levels and regain function.
  5. Progress Tracking: Many rehab treadmills offer built-in tracking features that allow patients and therapists to monitor progress over time. This can help set goals, track improvements, and adjust treatment plans as needed.
  6. Convenience and Accessibility: Having a rehab treadmill at home or in a clinical setting provides convenient access to rehabilitation exercises, allowing patients to incorporate regular physical activity into their daily routine and accelerate the recovery process.

Ultimately, the best rehab treadmill for you will depend on your specific rehabilitation needs, preferences, and goals. Consider the features and benefits outlined above when making your decision, and consult with a healthcare professional or physical therapist for personalised guidance and recommendations.
