Status : Current   Published : June 2018



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,
