Case studies performed on or with a variety of Woodway products
Below is a list of case studies performed on or with a variety of Woodway products. If you or your facility are interested in being a part of Woodway research, please contact us.
(2010) Energy expenditure is greater on the non-motorized treadmill, which may provide an additional training overload if the treadmill is consistently used as a training technique.
(2011) As little as 15 minute of Sprint Interval Training (SIT) per week can produce aerobic effects similar to those achieved by 1.5-3 hours of endurance training per week.
(2013) The Curve Treadmill is a reliable assessment of anaerobic performance in sports that require high velocity running.
(2014) The Curve Treadmill elicits greater physiological stimulus than a standard motorized treadmill, proven by small, statistically significant changes in RPE at matched speed.
(2010) Increased energy expenditure at give walking speeds on the Curve could have dramatic implications for general health and fitness. Walking on the Curve Treadmill allows heart rate levels previously only attainable by running.
In comparison to the two motorized treadmills, rear-foot pressure was shown to be significantly less intense on the Curve Treadmill at all speeds.
(2011) Step length is comparable between the Curve and a motorized treadmill, and increases as speed increases.
(2014) A single 30-second max speed sprint on the Curve Treadmill may be an alternative to several time-consuming field tests once athletes are familiarized with the device.
(2015) With as little as one familiarization session on the WOODWAY Curve Treadmill, team-sport athletes can reliably reproduce self-selected distances/speeds across a range of loco-motor commands.
(2005) After 4 weeks, the deficit between the right and left extremities of an injured player had been reduced significantly. After 9 months, the player returned to full play, and ran a 40 yard dash .4 seconds faster than before the incident.
(2006) By introducing the WOODWAY Force Treadmill, trained athletes will significantly improve their acceleration, power, and top end speed performance, even when no other sprint-type movement is being trained.
(2006) Even with a relatively low load, a resisted sprint ergometer still produced significant improvements over all distances.
Force 3.0 Treadmill
(2005) The non-motorized treadmill allowed for a highly reproducible running protocol, which can be considered more reliable than common field tests.
(2009) After 7 weeks of resisted and non-resisted sprint training on the Force, land-based max speed, velocity, and power improved during sprinting on the treadmill.
(2007) The NMT system and team-sport simulation provide a reliable tool for measuring performance demands and most physiological responses of various team sports in moderately trained athletes.
(2009) Locomotor adaptation following split-belt treadmill walking partially transfers to over ground walking in both healthy control subjects and persons post-stroke.
(2006) Cerebellar damage significantly disrupts predictive feedforward motor adaptations during Split-Belt treadmill locomotion.
(2007) Cerebral and subcortical strokes causing a range of sensory and motor deficits did not impair a person’s ability to make immediate reactions or slower adaptations during Split-Belt treadmill locomotion.
(2011) Within-subject variability, intra-day (within the same test day) variability, and inter-day (between test days) variability all decreased over time.
(2012) An all-out sprint performed on the Wattbike is reliable and reproducible for peak speed, average cadence, max heart rate, and post-exercise blood lactate concentration.
(2014) Wattbike is highly reliable when it comes to stand-alone cycle ergometers, and may provide an appropriate and more readily available alternative.
LokoHelp Gait Trainer
(2012) Using the LokoHelp elicits kinematic, muscular, and metabolic responses in people with incomplete spinal cord injury.
(2008) Gait training with the newly developed LokoHelp system is feasible for non-ambulatory patients after stroke, spinal cord injury, or brain injury.
