Based on WOODWAY’s patented slat and ball bearing design, the Force does not have a drive motor, but actually a magnetic braking system (0-150 lb.) that turns the athlete/user into “the force” which drives the belt. The Force works by tethering the athlete to the rear of the treadmill and having them actually spin the belt as they run; adding resistance increases the force that the athlete must generate to run.
The biggest advantage of the Force is the ability to produce measureable results. Using the Force software, users have access to a range of data from the very simple speed, power, time, heart rate and distance to utilizing computer software that measures, compares and saves horizontal and vertical forces and displays them in graph form for gait analysis and overall athletic system development.

“The Force Treadmill allows us to improve the motor programming of our athletes by naturally getting the body to learn and experience foot interaction with the ground while providing instantaneous feedback. It also helps with motor programming for speed by being able to transition from the force application while on the Force into a ground-based sprint which effectively teaches both acceleration and absolute speed mechanics. The Force is an energy systems tool, a speed training and teaching tool and provides a lot of bang for the buck.”
