One man's knee injury
is changing lives and by improving the way people walk, run, train and receive physical therapy.

Hello. My name is Clayton Lee. I am the inventor of the Orbiter treadmill. This is the history of how Orbiter went from an idea born of pain, to becoming the world's number one treadmill, featuring uncompromised and unequaled impact reduction, energy return, cardio benefits, and power training technology.

After years of trial and error, prototyping and filing patents, Orbiter was formed in the summer of 1987 and incorporated a few months later. The company is owned by shareholders, which number fewer than one hundred individuals.



It began while I was recovering from my own severe knee injury suffered one afternoon while playing a simple game of touch football with family and friends. My whole world changed as I leaped to knock down a Peter Bean pass (I missed) and came down wrong - very wrong.



All I remember was hearing a loud cracking sound, much like a tree limb breaking, and lying helplessly as my friends crowded around me. The bottom portion of my left leg was 'rotated' ninety degrees to the left of my knee and upper leg. It was ugly. One of my friends vomited at the site of it. All I could think of to say was, "Take me to the hospital".



Dr. Burdeaux's description of what happened to my left knee:

1. Torn deep and superficial portion of the tibial collateral ligament.
2. Torn postermedial capsule.
3. Torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).
