    Significance and Use

    The purpose of these test methods is to provide reliable and repeatable test methods for the evaluation of motorized treadmills assembled and maintained according to the manufacturer's specifications. Use of these test methods in conjunction with Specification F2115, Specification F2276, and Test Methods F2571 is intended to insure appropriate performance and reliability of a motorized treadmill and reduce the risk of serious injury from design deficiencies.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods specify procedures and equipment used for testing and evaluating a motorized treadmill for compliance to Specification F2115. Both design and operational parameters will be evaluated. Where possible and applicable, accepted test methods from other recognized bodies will be used and referenced. In case of a conflict between this document and Specification F2115, Specification F2115 takes precedence.

    1.2 This test method is to be used in conjunction with Specification F2276, Test Methods F2571, and Specification F2115.

    1.3 This standard takes precedence over Specification F2276 and Test Methods F2571 in areas that are specific to motorized treadmills.

    1.4 RequirementsA motorized treadmill is to be tested for all of the following parameters:

    1.4.1 Stability,

    1.4.2 Exterior design,

    1.4.3 Endurance,

    1.4.4 Static loading,

    1.4.5 Overheating,

    1.4.6 Adjustable incline system function,

    1.4.7 User interface parameters,

    1.4.8 Motorized drive system operation,

    1.4.9 Warning label compliance, and

    1.4.10 Documentation.
