Professional and amateur athletes have train on Orbiter Treadmills since 1989 to train and condition without the wear and tear on their bodies they receive on hard surfaces.
The Orbiter Treadmill’s design allows athletes to maintain fresh legs and not re-injur post-op and post injury conditions.
The Orbiter shock absorbing treadmill revolutionized many standard protocols of athletic rehabilitation in the 1990’s, especially in dealing with the time constraints of professional and collegiate athletes.
“I’m able to get players walking and jogging on the Orbiter that can barely limp on a regular surface due to the pain.”

Professional and collegiate trainers have discovered they can be more aggressive with initiating ambulation and reeducation of the gait mechanism using an Orbiter Treadmill.
While playing for the Houston Oilers, Warren Moon suffered from severe patella tendonitis. He used the Orbiter as his main modality:
(a) to build cardiovascular conditioning,
(b) as a warm up for weight lifting & before practices, and
(c) whenever prescribed and needed during his rehabilitation.
“There’s no question Orbiter helped me get back on the field faster after I had my knee scoped (arthriscopic surgery) a few years ago. Orbiter takes the pressure off my joints and legs.”
