Used Treadmills

Treadmills At Hotels And Hospitals

Luxury and requirement are the factors behind the respective use of treadmills in hotels and hospitals. The extensions may be different but the basics remain the same.

At hotels :
Hotels have always used treadmills as a part of their gyms but the latest trend adopted by these hotels is to provide in-room treadmill to the guests. The reason behind this move is that more and more people are comfortable exercising in private than in public. Moreover, there are a large number of guests in a particular hotel at a particular time and practically all of them want to exercise in the mornings. And with a limited number of treadmills this is just not possible. So to provide better service and reduce troubles, individual treadmills are now being provided in each room. The features in these treadmills will, however, vary depending on the class of the hotel or the room.

The various advantages of in-room treadmills, at hotels are as follows:
1) The guests do not need to miss their phone calls while they are exercising.
2) They can always enjoy watching their favorite television program while working out.
3) They can exercise in total privacy of their room and do not need to handle or face unwanted people.
4) They don't need to wait for their turn.

At hospitals :
Many hospitals are making use of automated rehabilitative treadmills to cure patients, who have suffered from some kind of stroke, which has taken away their motion.

Every year, a large number of people suffer from accidents that limit their ability to walk. These automated treadmills help patients to gain back their ability to walk, although it takes time before a person is actually able to walk just like he/she did before the accident.

They are helpful in cases, where the patient may have lost the ability to walk completely or where he might have just lost control on his legs. There also exists a manual version of this treadmill, in which two people are required to support the patient, while he/she uses the treadmill.

More and more hospitals are using these treadmills to cure patients suffering from various limb ailments. Various patients with spinal cord injuries are also getting therapy done with the help of such treadmills.

Treadmills are not only being used for staying healthy and exercising but are also used to solve medical problems. They are becoming increasingly popular but you need to keep certain things in mind when you purchase them. A wrong decision could actually put your money in the pit.
