Split-Belt Treadmill

Looks great.


Split-belt treadmillVia CNN Health : The discovery that separate nerve networks are responsible for how each leg moves has led to an intriguing piece of fitness equipment - a split-belt treadmill.

The separate belts can be moved at different speeds to one another - even in different directions - in order to force the brain to adjust the way you walk. Although it was originally designed to aid stroke victims, I suspect it has a far greater range of potential uses.

Looks great.
