The SPIRIT MEDICAL Gait Trainer Treadmill MEDT200 features one speed control motor, an incline motor, and a decline motor. Three motors together help users to achieve bi-directional training in combination with uphill or downhill protocols. Adding more versatility to exercise and therapy options, the parallel bars, deck height, and belt speed acceleration are adjustable in small and precise increments.
Biofeedback is offered for clinicians to accurately assess user gait performance. Feedback includes the symmetry index, which is particularly outstanding for clinicians to condition users’ step and cadence. As a result, this treadmill is ideal for pediatric exercises, neurologically impaired patients, and other populations.
- TWO INDEPENDENT INCLINE MOTORS PROVIDING TRUE INCLINE AND DECLINE
Front incline range from 0 to 15 % grade
Rear decline range from 0 to - 10 % grade.
- TRUE ZERO SPEED
When the belt is not moving the motor is locked for patient safety.
- BI-DIRECTIONAL BELT SPEED
Forward belt speed from 0.15 to 16 km in 0.15 kmh increments
Reverse belt speed from 0.15 to 4.8 kmh in 0.15 kmh increments – reverse walking
- ADJUSTABLE BELT SPEED ACCELERATION
Adjustment range is 1 second to 1 minute for every 1 mph of belt speed.
- LOW STEP-UP HEIGHT
Removable patient step-up
- ADJUSTABLE FULL LENGTH HANDRAILS FOR SAFETY
Accommodates a wide variety of patient populations
Handrail Height – 24.5 to 34.5 inches
Handrail Width – 19.5 to 31 inches

Advantages and clinical applications
ORTHOPEDIC, SPORTS MEDICINE, AND ATHLETIC TRAINING EXERCISE
Use uphill or downhill walking and jogging to emphasize specific muscle groups or motions. Use retro-walking to promote the use of reciprocal muscle groups not normally exercised during forward walking alone.
Monitor heart rate by Telemetry or contact heart rate in handgrips. MET level displayed for easy compliance to patient exercise prescriptions. Belt speeds as low as 0.1 mph to accommodate even the most deconditioned patient.
OLDER ADULT EXERCISE
Simulate uphill and downhill walking. Retro-walk to reduce flexion contractures with total knee and total hip replacements. Retro-walk is also great for promoting dorsiflexion. (Using the dual height Geriatric/Pediatric Handrails).
Small and precise speed increments and adjustable handrails make this treadmill ideal for use with children too.
NEUROLOGICAL REHABILITATION EXERCISE
Treadmills have long been used in therapy and conditioning to encourage patient compliance. Now, the small speed increments, specially configured handrails, and gait monitoring permit the neurologically impaired patient population to safely benefit as well.
