The Curve treadmill by Woodway, is manual. Meaning that it does not need electricity to work, making it green and eco friendly.  So you might wonder how does it it work?

The non-motorised Curve treadmill has a unique patented running surface. The slatted belt system  which is often a single belt on motorised treadmills is almost is, which allows the belt to glide smoothly. While the curved shape of the treadmill surface allows users are able to control their pace at will. The can speed up, simply start running, to slow down, allow yourself to drift down the curve. Which not only is better for joints and the knees,  but overall posture as you are not running to a forced set tempo but rather working with gravity.

The Woodway Curve - The Muscle Coaches

 

Apart from being cheaper to runner and safer for the environment, the Curve  allows runners to  increase their own tempo watching the interface, rather than being subject to ramp up/down speeds. They can reach full sprint in a few explosive steps which is ideal for HIIT or circuit classes as swell as not having a maximum speed.
