This specification establishes parameters for the design and manufacture of elliptical training equipment for use in an indoor environment or setting. It specifies fitness products for use only by an individual age 13 or older and is to be used in conjunction with Specification F2276 and Test Methods F2811. The goal of this specification is to promote proper design and manufacturing practices for elliptical training equipment so that the possibility of injury can be minimized when these products are used in accordance with the operational instructions. Equipment types covered by this specification are elliptical trainer with fixed handlebars (Type 1), elliptical trainer with moveable handlebars (Type 2), and elliptical trainer with moveable and fixed handlebars (Type 3). Design and construction requirements are for foot support (foot support loading), handlebars (handlebar loading), endurance, and adjustable guide systems.
