The goal of this project was to design, construct, and test a prototype treadmill that is suitable for users of advanced age. An existing treadmill was selected for modification, and the final design involved a modified walking surface, an adjustable hand rail system, a harness system, and a new user interface. The prototype was constructed and a series of tests and analyses were run to ensure functionality and suitablility for an elderly user.
