We lack exercise in our daily life. Even if we want to do some walking exercise, we do not have enough open space to do it since the cities and urban areas are congested and more polluted.


Treadmill, which was invented in 1817 as a punishment in British prisons, has come to our rescue as equipment for walking exercise. Dr. Robert Bruce and Wayne Quinton invented the first medical treadmill which was developed later as fitness equipment that could be used at home. It is a great boon for exercise, especially for doing cardiovascular exercise at home.
