Significance and Use

4.1 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 ensure appropriate performance and reliability of a motorized treadmill and reduce the risk of serious injury from design deficiencies.


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 Requirements—A 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 loading,

1.4.4 Static loading,

1.4.5 Adjustable incline system,

1.4.6 Controls,

1.4.7 Motorized drive system,

1.4.8 Folding treadmills,

1.4.9 Additional universal design requirements,

1.4.10 Documentation,

1.4.11 Marking, and

1.4.12 Warnings/Warning labels.

1.5 This test method2 contains additional requirements to address the accessibility of the equipment for persons with disabilities.

1.6 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parenthesis are for information only.

1.7 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.8 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
