Treadmill Technical Information
We used specially designed infant- sized treadmills
that cost us approximately $1,000 each to build. While any treadmill
can be used, certain restrictions do apply to a treadmill's belt speed
in order to accommodate use by an infant. The belt speed must be able
to operate at a speed just under ½ mile per hour. The speed we used
with our infant-sized treadmills was 0.46 miles per hour (0.2 meters per
second). Some parents have purchased inexpensive adult- sized treadmills
at stores such as Walmart, Service Merchandize, and The Sports Authority
that have met these speed requirements.
