Cobb, Eben C
This project continued previous work modifying a treadmill to better fit the needs of elderly users. The project modified four aspects of a stock treadmill. The first modification was the addition of a handrail system for increased safety. The second was a speed reduction mechanism to allow for finer control. The third was a user interface tailored to the difficulties that present with aging. The fourth was a new walking surface to absorb more impact than the original surface.
