Cedar Rapids, United States – May 17, 2015 /PressCable/

The recent death of Silicon Valley company executive David Goldberg on a treadmill at a resort in Mexico has stimulated the discussion on treadmill safety. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission treadmill related deaths are rare, averaging about 3 a year for the period from 2003 thru 2012. “Treadmill injuries actually are quite common,” said Louis H. Alarcon, medical director of trauma surgery at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Presbyterian. “People fall off the devices with resulting fractures and head injuries. Concussions are quite common. There also are bruises, sprains, lacerations, and occasionally, there are more life-threatening injuries with head bleeds, spinal injuries or liver and spleen injuries that lead to bleeding. “Injuries from treadmills, however, are not unusual. In 2014, there were 24,400 injuries associated with treadmills in emergency rooms across the country.

Treadmills continue to be the most popular home exercise machine. However, it is probably safe to assume that many people are interested in a safer alternative to the treadmill.

There are safer alternatives available. The safer alternative that stands out are the Bowflex TreadClimbers. Multiple Google searches on the internet found no data on injuries to users while using Bowflex TreadClimbers.

There are other advantages to using the Bowflex TreadClimber as well. One of the most important factors to many users of any exercise equipment is their ability to burn calories efficiently and promote while building strength. According to a 2011 study by the University of Wisconsin, Bowflex advertising claims the TreadClimber burns 3.5 times as many calories as a comparable treadmill workout.

However, some critics argue those figures, used on Bowflex advertising are exaggerated due to methodological errors, However, according to a recent Adelphi University study, the Bowflex TreadClimber helps burn calories at a significantly faster rate than a workout on a treadmill. The study found that a 180-pound person burns about 348 calories during a half-hour workout at 3 mph on the TreadClimber. The same person burns about 135 calories in 30 minutes of walking on a treadmill at 3 mph.

The Adelphi University study reports that using the TreadClimber provides a quicker calorie burn than similar workouts on a variety of other exercise machines. During a 30-minute workout, a 180-pound person burns 260 calories pedaling a stationary bike at a medium pace, 259 calories using a stair stepper at a medium pace and 135 calories walking on a treadmill at 3 mph.

Depending on which figures one chooses to use the Bowflex TreadClimbers burn 2.5 to 3.5 times as many calories as a treadmill. This can be seen as a major advantage to the individual who wants to burn calories in order to lose weight and gain strength. Reviewers at TreadmillDoctor conclude the TreadClimber provides “a workout that is unparalleled on any treadmill.”

Another important health and safety advantage in using Bowflex TreadClimbers is that they produce less stress on the knee and ankle joints due to its walking motion rather than running as on a treadmill. Bowflex says the TreadClimber allows the exerciser to get the benefits of 3 workouts in 1. According to Bowflex, “the machines combine the motions of a treadmill, a stair climber and an elliptical for an easy; low-impact workout with high-impact results and all the user does is walk. This 3-in-1 walking workout will tone the core, glutes, thighs and more in every workout.” This is accomplished as follows:

1. Moving belts to let the user WALK FORWARD like a treadmill.

2 As the user moves forward he/she will STEP UP like a stair climber.

3. With each step the treadles rise to meet the user’s feet, creating a low-impact ELLIPTICAL motion.
