Instrumented Treadmills

Bertec’s Fully Instrumented treadmill (FIT) reduces gait lab space requirements and eliminates the limitations inherent in a traditional gait walkway. Researchers and clinicians can perform numerous testing conditions in a compact 2 meter space with variable incline and speed settings.

Bertec’s FIT allows you to:
