Instrumented Treadmills


The Bertec Fully Instrumented Treadmill allows researchers to reduce gait laboratory space requirements and remove the limitations inherent in a traditional gait walkway. The unique design results in superior dynamic characteristics and a high natural frequency making it the best research-grade fully instrumented treadmill available on the market.

  • Independent motion control of each belt

  • Stable operation of the treadmill

  • Industry-leading accuracy

  • Ease of treadmill control

  • Variety of applications and ease of integration

  • Unique design features


Industry-leading accuracy

Bertec treadmills offer high precision data at precision-controlled speeds and accelerations. The system’s high natural frequency, low vibration drive system, and Bertec’s custom electronics enable independent and highly accurate 6-component load measurements from each belt.

Unique design

Meticulously designed, the Bertec Fully Instrumented Treadmill is a split belt system with each side controlled independently (or synced) in both forward and reverse directions. With optional instrumented handrails and incline systems, you can expand your studies to collect more scenarios including upper and lower body forces in uphill or downhill setups.


Easy integration

Works with all major motion capture systems. The treadmill’s user-friendly controls allow for testing numerous conditions with variable incline, speed, and acceleration options. Additionally, for deep custom integrations, our developer SDK is available for custom belt control and data access.

Two independent force measuring belts, m (in): 1.75 x 0.5 (approx. 70 x 20) each

Max Load Range: N (lb) - Fx, Fy: 2,500 (550) Fz: 5,000 (1,100)

Speed Range: km/h (mi/h): 0-24 (0-15)

Acceleration: m/s2 (ft/ s2): 0-25 (0-82)

Total Walking Surface: m (in) 1.75 x 1 (approx. 70 x 40)


Incline: Analyze uphill and downhill movements up to 15 degrees

Overhead structure and harness ensures patient safety and prevents falls and off track movements. Users can be comfortable and confident during testing.

Instrumented handrails available - each handrail outputs three components of force (Fx, Fy, Fz)
