Treadmill For Everyone aims to encourage blind people to take to the treadmill without worry.
When people run, their feet often don’t land at the same time, which increases the uncertainty of landing. When exercising on a treadmill, the blind people often have difficulty knowing whether they are in the safe area.
Treadmill For Everyone is designed with a movable belt, the belt is connected to the slanting slide, so it can be attached to the user's body under the effect of gravity, so the user can always sense his own orientation through the belt.
