High Speed Treadmills
- Moving, operating, or happening very quickly
- (of photographic film) Needing little light or only short exposure
- High Speed is a 1986 pinball game designed by Steve Ritchie and released by Williams Electronics. This game was based on Ritchie's real-life police chase inside a 1979 Porsche 928. . He was finally caught in Lodi, CA on Interstate 5 and accused of speeding at 146 mph..
- (of steel) Suitable for drill bits and other tools that cut fast enough to become red-hot
- High-speed rail (HSR) is a type of passenger rail transport that operates significantly faster than the normal speed of rail traffic. Specific definitions by the European Union include for upgraded track and or faster for new track.
- operating at high speed; "a high-speed food processor"; "a high-velocity shell"
- (treadmill) a mill that is powered by men or animals walking on a circular belt or climbing steps
- A device formerly used for driving machinery, consisting of a large wheel with steps fitted into its inner surface. It was turned by the weight of people or animals treading the steps
- An exercise machine, typically with a continuous belt, that allows one to walk or run in place
- A job or situation that is tiring, boring, or unpleasant and from which it is hard to escape
- (treadmill) a job involving drudgery and confinement

high speed treadmills – Exerpeutic TF1000
Get fit on your own schedule with the Exerpeutic TF1000 electric walking treadmill. The TF1000 is expressly designed for walkers, with an adjustable speed up to 4 miles per hour in 0.1 mph increments.
The TF1000’s folding frame makes it easy to store and transport.
The more you walk, the better you’ll feel, as walking on a treadmill is easier on the knees than outdoor walking (less impact than a sidewalk) while helping you lose body fat, tone muscles, and improve your cardio fitness. The TF1000 is equipped with a 1.5-horsepower high-torque motor and a “Quiet Drive” system that reduces walking noise. As a result, the TF1000 is ideal for folks who want to work out without waking the kids or drowning out the TV or stereo. The treadmill is also safer than many home treadmills thanks to the 20-inch-wide treadmill belt–the same size found in most fitness clubs–and the extra-long 18-inch safety handles, which are two times the standard length.
Construction-wise, the TF1000 includes a reinforced frame that’s been tested for a user weight up to 400 pounds, along with wide side rails that acts as a foot platform if necessary. It’s also easy to track your workout progress via the LCD display, which monitors your elapsed time, distance walked, calories burned, speed, and pulse. And you easily move the treadmill just about anywhere, as the TF000 includes a folding frame and bottom wheels. The TF1000 carries a five-year warranty on the motor and frame and a 90-day warranty on parts and labor.
Usage of the term "engine"
Originally an engine was a mechanical device that converted force into motion. Military devices such as catapults, trebuchets and battering rams are referred to as siege engines. The term "gin" as in cotton gin is recognised as a short form of the Old French word engin, in turn from the Latin ingenium, related to ingenious. Most devices used in the industrial revolution were referred to as engines, and this is where the steam engine gained its name.
In modern usage, the term is used to describe devices capable of performing mechanical work, as in the original steam engine. In most cases the work is produced by exerting a torque or linear force, which is used to operate other machinery which can generate electricity, pump water, or compress gas. In the context of propulsion systems, an air-breathing engine is one that uses atmospheric air to oxidise the fuel carried rather than supplying an independent oxidizer, as in a rocket.
Simple machines, such as the club and oar (examples of the lever), are prehistoric. More complex engines using human power, animal power, water power, wind power and even steam power date back to antiquity. Human power was focused by the use of simple engines, such as the capstan, windlass or treadmill, and with ropes, pulleys, and block and tackle arrangements; this power was transmitted usually with the forces multiplied and the speed reduced. These were used in cranes and aboard ships in Ancient Greece, as well as in mines, water pumps and siege engines in Ancient Rome. The writers of those times, including Vitruvius, Frontinus and Pliny the Elder, treat these engines as commonplace, so their invention may be far more ancient. By the 1st century AD, various breeds of cattle and horses were used in mills, driving machines similar to those powered by humans in earlier times.
According to Strabo, a water powered mill was built in Kaberia of the kingdom of Mithridates during the 1st century BC. Use of water wheels in mills spread throughout the Roman Empire over the next few centuries. Some were quite complex, with aqueducts, dams, and sluices to maintain and channel the water, along with systems of gears, or toothed-wheels made of wood and metal to regulate the speed of rotation. In a poem by Ausonius in the 4th century, he mentions a stone-cutting saw powered by water. Hero of Alexandria is credited with many such wind and steam powered machines in the 1st century AD, including the Aeolipile, but it is not known if any of these were put to practical use.
During the Muslim Agricultural Revolution from the 9th to 13th centuries, Muslim engineers developed numerous innovative industrial uses of hydropower, early industrial uses of tidal power, wind power, and fossil fuels such as petroleum, together with the earliest large factory complexes (tiraz in Arabic). The industrial uses of watermills in the Islamic world date back to the 7th century, whereas horizontal-wheeled and vertical-wheeled water mills were both in widespread use since at least the 9th century. A variety of industrial mills were invented in the Islamic world, including fulling mills, hullers, steel mills, sugar refineries, and windmills. By the 11th century, every province throughout the Islamic world had these industrial mills in operation, from the Middle East and Central Asia to al-Andalus and North Africa.
Roman engineers invented water turbines in the 4th century AD, Muslim engineers employed gears in mills and water-raising machines, and pioneered the use of dams as a source of water power to provide additional power to watermills and water-raising machines. Such advances made it possible for many industrial tasks that were previously driven by manual labour to be mechanized and driven by machinery to some extent in the medieval Islamic world.
In 1206, al-Jazari employed a crank-connecting rod system for two of his water-raising machines. A similar steam turbine later appeared in Europe a century later, which eventually led to the steam engine and Industrial Revolution in 18th century Europe.
So I go in for my stress test which is awful by the way! They make you walk on this treadmill that speeds up and raises up at an incline every 3 minutes. Not fun. I think i was only on there not even 10 minutes and I couldn’t hack it. What can I say I’m a wuss. Than they let me sit down for a bit (thank god!) and I thought everything was kosher and I was hoping I would never have to do that again. I got my hopes up a little too high. They said my test weren’t exactly great so they wanted me to come back and do a cardiolite stress test. It’s like your average stress test, but worse! Ha ha. First I found out I had to take a pregnancy test, which I thought they’d just give you one at the hospital, but turns out I had to buy it on my own. Since I didn’t read the fine print (who does?) one of the nurses had to go search down a pregnancy test for me, which turned out NEGATIVE just like I had predicted. They shove a needle in your arm and put in this liquid to light your heart up so they can see it when it’s at rest and when it’s pumping really fast. Now they go strap me down to this x-ray type deal that kind of spins around very slowly and takes pictures of your heart at rest. Than the fun begins! It’s back to the treadmill. Ugh!!!! Than when that’s all done they give me this really awful orange juice that tasted like crap and took more pictures. I waited thinking I was finally done with this place…NOPE! I go back to get my results (oh yes I had to make a separate appointment for that!) and while he’s listening to my heart he proclaims "Oh you have a heart murmur!" Greattttt!!!
Now I have to go back to these people and have an echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart) and I am kind of tired of all this running around, but whatever it’s my heart I need it so I’ll go with the program. They do the ultrasound and all this time I can heart the click my heart makes whenever it beats. Definitely not normal, but nothing that I was worried about. After all this running around I finally got a diagnosis. Apparently my valve is having issues (a few of them actually I believe he said 3 out of 4 of them had some slight regurgitation) and I have what is called a Mitral Valve Prolapse. Nothing too life threatening (unless it gets worse) and apparently a lot of people have this. It’s really common in woman and the only deal is that if you have to get dental work done you have to tell them you have this so they can give you antibiotics, otherwise you could get a heart infection. I was prescribe Toporal, but I never felt the need to take it. Also the fact that it’s a medication used to slow your heart down kind of made me iffy.
So that my friends is my heart story. I do still get the frequent palpitations, but it’s something I can live with. I consider myself very lucky and am glad that it wasn’t anything to be insanely concerned about. In that aspect I am a very healthy individual who will hopefully live until she’s well into her 80’s (like my grandma!) and have a happy life! Wish me luck!
