What is an EKG treadmill?
EKG treadmills have pulse sensors built in, usually on the side bars or handlebars but sometimes on separate grip bars affixed to the upright in front of the runner, as on the Proform Crosswalk Caliber, CS11e, and 730 and 730CS treadmills. EKG Pulse sensors monitor the heart rate and the result is displayed in the console.
There are advantages to EKG Pulse treadmills.
Having heart rate information displayed allows those with concerns about cardiovascular health to limit their exercise to safe levels.
Those on weight loss programs find heart rate information especially helpful because the optimum workout for burning calories is indicated by how hard the heart is working-the optimum training zone.
Workout speeds and deck incline can be adjusted to maintain a workout within the optimum range.
Sports training enthusiasts can track their aerobic conditioning by monitoring heart rate information over a period of days and weeks.
And after all, whether exercising for weight loss, general fitness, or sports training, working out on a treadmill is all about the health of your heart and your cardiovascular system.
