Electrical powered Treadmill bike is the collaboration of two commodities i.e. Treadmill and electric bike. Treadmill is a device widely used for exercising purpose to stay fit and healthy. Treadmill machines are able to eliminate impact force and adapt to dynamics of human motion. This mechanism developed has been designed to alleviate impact on joints while closely simulating the gait cycle. Electric bike is one which uses electrical energy as primary source of energy.
Treadmill bike gives you the joy of riding the bike and running over a treadmill. As it is a portable vehicle, it will let you to go for a jog without getting your shoes dirty. Treadmill bike eliminates the problem of overnight charging of the battery, instead it uses the un used rotational energy of the roller to charge. When the walker is tired / while going through inclined paths, person can switch on the electrical system and ride it like a e-bike.
In construction it comprises of manual treadmill, alternator, brush less DC motor and DC-DC converter. In operation, while the walker is walking/running over the treadmill board, the bike tends to move as like cycle. For this to happen, it takes transmission through gear trains. When the walker is walking, some amount of unused energy is utilized to charge the battery.
When personal vehicle (cars, bikes) is not available, use this technology as an urban mobility vehicle, thus eliminating all kinds of pollution.
