Orbiter unites the treadmill's stable
moving surface, with the shock absorbing, energy returning
benefits of a trampoline. Because there is no rigid
support below Orbiter's running surface, the impact you
would normally receive (and do receive on other treadmills)
is absorbed, then transformed into true energy return by
Orbiter's one-of-a-kind suspension system. Your bones,
joints and soft tissues are protected from the short and
long term effects of repetitive impact shock, sometimes
referred to as overuse syndrome.
On an Orbiter - running and walking become low-impact
exercises that are safe, comfortable, and challenging. The interacting forces of Gravity, Acceleration and
Deceleration are often cited by trampoline researchers and
enthusiasts as providing unique health benefits for users.
These same forces combine with walking and running to create
a dynamic workout that can be repeated without the trauma
associated with continuous conditioning programs.
Helps prevent runner's knee and overuse syndrome, while providing high aerobic activity.

Beware of claims by various treadmill companies
claiming their models are "low impact", "shock free", "no
impact", "no shock", etc.
How can Orbiter do what no other treadmill or exercise
surface can do?
Orbiter was invented by an Clayton
Lee, who in his early twenties, suffered a severe knee injury (see surgeon's description of injury on the History page) while
playing football. He founded Orbiter (the company) in 1987
with Shearson Lehman Brothers office mate Bill Walstead, Knox Hughes, and Jeff Meredith to produce the finest a new, better walking and running
experience. No corners are cut in production of an
Orbiter invention, which he initially named "Rollerbounce"
centers on his idea for a suspended, flexible, yet stable
rolling surface. This
system absorbs and dissipates impact shock while delivering
comfort and energy return that are beyond comparison.
Orbiter Treadmills allow walkers and
runners to decelerate naturally and completely, before beginning their next cycle of acceleration which is aided by the surface in the form of rear foot vertical lift, a phenomenonal exercise experience usually reserved for world class athletes.
Orbiter allows a walker or runner's legs to reach a more
natural extension than is otherwise possible. This 'natural
leg extension' simply feels great. Orbiter is designed to
deliver the perfect amount of deceleration and acceleration
every time to every walker and runner, regardless of the
user's height or weight, or fast or slow the exerciser is
walking or running.
we have offered an open challenge to any and all treadmill
companies for a filmed public preference comparison. So far,
we have no takers. No other treadmill compares to the comfort of an Orbiter. That's not bragging, it's a fact.
The many advantages of owning the new and improved Orbiter Treadmill 4.1 will be apparent from the first time
you step on its surface. Countless hours and
many years of innovation and dedication have been applied to bring you this fine, one of a kind product. Orbiters have been enjoyed by users in the
USA and around the world for more than twenty one years. The new
