Personnel Qualifications and Responsibilities
WARNING
Danger Due to Improper Use!
Improper handling of the device can lead to serious personal injury and
property damage.
► The device may only be operated by persons who have received
instructions from qualified service personnel.
► WOODWAY GmbH recommends the use of a training record
(see appendix) for proof of instructions.
Representative:
The representative is the person or company that is responsible for setting up, use
and maintenance of the device.
The representative of the treadmill is responsible for the regular maintenance and
testing as required by law. They are also obligated to provide adequate training/instruction to the operating personnel. WOODWAY GmbH recommends the

Operator:
Operators of treadmills for medical applications are persons who use the device and
have the "power of control" over the device. This can be e.g. therapists, sports
physicians or any other supervisor. The operator of a medical device is any person
who - regardless of their qualifications - independently uses a medical product in
the commercial sector.
The operator is personally responsible for the safety of the user (e.g. patient, test
subject, athlete). Due to the high degree of responsibility these persons have a special obligation to provide information on all aspects of safety of the device and its
intended use is required.
3.5

Gait Training and Gait Analysis
Exercise Therapy/Rehabilitation Training in Rehabilitation
(Locomotion Therapy)
11
Safety
In all fields of use the treatment of patients with a variety of physical and/or mental
limitations is carried out (for example, gait impairments, limited reflexes, etc.).
Special User Groups!
Special attention must apply to these user groups. Compared to treadmill exercise
with healthy people the risk of injury is considerably higher with these users. Strict
adherence to and compliance with all safety instructions and operating information
is the highest priority.
The patient may only use the treadmill under the supervision of a physician and/or
therapist! The training program must be medically prescribed and monitored.
Body Weight
Support!
For patients with an increased risk of falling, partial or complete body weight
support through a weight support system is to be considered.
WARNING
Risk of Injury Through Increased Risk of Falling!
Because of their illness or their physical/mental condition, certain people have
of an increased risk of falling.
► Use of a fall protection system, support belt, body weight support system
(partial or complete).
► The manufacturer is not liable for personal injury and/or property damage,
which could have been prevented through the use of a fall protection
system, support belt or body weight support system.
Locomotion
Therapy:
In rehabilitation, exercise therapy must be medically prescribed. The attending
physician and/or physiotherapist must have a sufficient knowledge of the indications
and contraindications.
The indications for treadmill therapy are to be reevaluated prior to each use. The
physician/physical therapist responsible for the patient must always perform a benefit/risk assessment, thus ensuring that the chosen form of treatment is medically
appropriate and reasonable considering the possible risks.
Contraindications!
There are a number of contraindications in the context of the relevant fields of the
treadmill use. In rehabilitation only the medical staff can determine the form and
extent of therapy. Medications can have an influence on the rehabilitation
(e.g. neuroleptics, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, antiepileptics, etc.).
For applications in "endurance training", "diagnostics and performance testing of
patients", "performance diagnostics" and "stress tests" the same contraindications
apply (among others) as with all physical stress. If there is doubt, it is important
that a physician be consulted before using the treadmill.
Possible contraindications are:


acute myocardial infarction or unstable angina pectoris (stress test)
cardiovascular diseases such as severe high blood pressure at rest, carditis,
congestive heart failure, severe valvular heart disease, dangerous heart arrhythmias at rest or aortic aneurysm
Acute illnesses, febrile conditions and newly occurring pain represent an absolute
contraindication for physical stress. The feasibility of a training program for patients
with chronic illnesses cannot be decided a priori and requires an accurate assessment of the risks and potential benefits.
In some situations (especially in patients with coronary heart disease or lung disease) overstraining can lead to an acute intensification of the patient's symptoms,
so that an exercise ECG is essential and training is only possible under medical supervision.

Description of Components
The patented walking surface consists of 60 slats which are mounted on a set of
endless combination wedged-toothed belts. These are connected with the drive via
a gear wheel. The teeth prevent slippage and allow for exact reproduction of the
distance.
The individual slats consist of two components. The base is a solid aluminum profile
and the tread rubber comprises a rubber-caoutchouc compound. The combination
provides for an exceptionally pleasant feel when walking.
The rubber surface significantly reduces the impact energy. Thus WOODWAY
treadmills are much easier on the joints than conventional treadmills.

Product Description
Support system
The support system consists of two supporting rails (secondary carrier), which are
equipped with high-performance bearings. Six V-belt guides on each carrier ensure
lateral stability.
The system which consists of a total of 112 ball bearings supports the running surface and distributes the load evenly over the entire treadmill. The running surface
belt (slats and steel wire reinforced toothed V-belt) is guided by a form-fitted drive
pulley on the front and back. The combination of running surface / secondary carrier / drive pulleys makes this slat system unique:



Lifting system:
(incline)
Low friction (energy saving) and low wear
(approx. 240,000 km functional service life)
100% power transfer through the form-fitted toothed V-belt system
(Reproducible measurements)
High service life (one running surface belt for one treadmill life)
The PPS series treadmills have lifting scissors with casters. This makes a maximum
incline of 25% possible (depends on model). The lifting system is driven by a linear
DC motor, which changes the angle of the scissors. This changes the incline of the
running belt.
The incline system is characterized by a very quiet operation. The system accuracy
is 0.1% and +/- 0.4 degrees.
Power console:
The main power switch (power), the fuses and the terminals for optional controls
(manual keyboard and display) are located on the power console.

Fall protection (safety bow with fall-stop, optional)
Non-slip coating on the side panels
(allows emergency dismount by "straddling")
WARNING
Dangerous Situations During Operation Which Can Cause Injury!
Conditions during use of the device that do not correspond to the normal
function and require an immediate stop. Each actuation of the Emergency
stop switch causes a power disconnection to the drive system which in turn
causes the running surface to emergency stop, which presents an additional
risk of falling!
► Immediate stopping of the device/drive caused by an installed safety
device.
► Switching off the device (Power button) and the pulling the power cord
from the socket.
► Clarification and elimination of causes of the dangerous situations only by
the WOODWAY Customer Service.
► Only restart the device after approval by WOODWAY customer service.
Emergency stop
switch
The emergency stop button (mushroom type) is mounted on the right hand railing
of all PPS series devices. Activating the emergency stop system causes immediate
power disconnection to the drive system. The running surface is stopped so that it
comes to a stop in a reasonably short time, but without causing further danger to
the runner by braking too suddenly (emergency stop). It is recommended that one
familiarize themselves with the treadmill's braking performance (emergency stop) at
various speeds.

Product Description
On treadmills with a reverse direction function, the emergency stop button has a
magnetic mount and can be freely positioned on the railing. Before starting a
workout ensure that the emergency stop button can always be reached by the runner or the treadmill operator.
Device users must always be positioned so that they can reach the emergency stop
switch in any situation.
Releasing:
After pressing the emergency stop button it initially remains locked. For further use
of the treadmill the button or mushroom must be released again. For this, pull the
red mushroom sharply upwards until the release can be heard and felt.
NOTE
Emergency stop release functions!
After releasing the emergency stop, the electronics are locked and the
treadmill cannot be used for 10 to 15 seconds.
It is only possible to restart after this time.
Pull cord with
Emergency stop
The emergency stop switch is a magnetic contact switch (open), which is attached
in the running direction on the display (WUS or DaMo) or on the railing ("Ortho"
model).
WARNING
Danger of Injury due to Improperly Installed Pull Cord!
If the pull cord is not installed properly before a workout, the emergency stop
magnetic switch will not be triggered and there is a risk of injury in the event
of a dangerous situation.
► The use of the pull cord is mandatory!
► Securely attached clip to tight clothing before starting the workout.
► Adjust the length of the pull cord with rope stopper to the shortest
possible setting, so that movement is still unrestricted.
It is attached by a magnet, and triggers at the release of the magnet. The magnet
is secured to the runner's clothing by a clip on a "rip line" or "pull cord". It should
be fixed to a piece of clothing with as little play as possible (e.g. waistband).

WARNING
Danger of Injury due to Incorrectly Placed Emergency Stop Button!
For treadmills with reversible direction the position of the emergency stop
button should always be in running direction. Otherwise the magnet cannot
release correctly and the function of the safety device is only limited.
► Always position the emergency stop button in the patient's running
direction.
► If the running direction is reversed, the emergency stop button must be
repositioned (in front of the patient).
The pull cord is no fall protection and cannot prevent a person from falling on the
treadmill. It only serves as an emergency stop in dangerous situations. When the
magnet is released, the drive system is disconnection from the power and an emergency stop is initiated.

Fall protection with
emergency stop
Provided the device is equipped with fall protection with emergency stop and the
runner is secured by chest harness or waist strap, the clip must not be connected to
the runner. The magnet must still be attached to the indicated point so that the
treadmill is operational.
The optional fall protection system for the treadmill serves to prevent accidents. It
must be used if:


there is an increased risk of falling
falls are associated with a potentially increased risk of injury.
It also increases safety when running on the wide running surface ( 70 cm). For
most users a controlled dismount by a straddling and standing securely on the side
panels is not possible on these running surfaces.
There is an increased risk of falling for example during performance diagnostics as
well as intense sprinting and long runs. There is an increased risk of injury from falling, especially in rehabilitation where patients with various physical limitations use
the treadmill.
Dismounting in
emergency
situations
WOODWAY PPS Series treadmills have slip-resistant surface alongside the running
surface. This offers additional grip when dismounting and prevents the feet from
slipping off of the side panels.
The slip resistant surface should be checked periodically for wear or lack of grip and
replaced if necessary.
In emergencies dismount the treadmill as follows:



jump and straddle the onto the side panels,
now the running surface can run between the legs,
then stop the treadmill using the normal stop button or the emergency stop
button.
When a safety waist strap/chest harness is worn, the user can also drop in an
emergency, if it is not possible to straddle the running surface.
An alternative is to stand on the side panel with both feet on one side of the running surface, right or left and to hold on to the railing. This will trigger the emergency stop mechanism via the pull cord and the running surface will come to a
controlled stop.

General
Commissioning is the initial intended use of the device, see sec. 3.5 Page 11. Ensure that the conditions applicable to basic safety and health requirements are met.
Read these operating instructions completely before commissioning.
Before commissioning the device, operating and functional safety is to be tested.
This includes correct installation, electrical connection, and operator training.
ATTENTION
Commissioning after Storage or Transport
The formation of condensation on the cooled electronic parts may cause the
treadmill to malfunction and damage the electronics.
► Before commissioning after storage or transport the treadmill must stand
at room temperature for approx. 3 hours to become acclimatized.
7.2
Installation
It is recommended that transport, installation and assembly of the treadmill to be
carried out by WOODWAY or by an authorized dealer or service provider. Otherwise
shipping damage or improper installation and assembly of the treadmill could cause
a hazard when using the device.
ATTENTION
Prepare a Stable Surface
Before the device is installed the surface must be prepared. The total weight
of the device with all the accessories and options is to be considered.
► Prepare a stable and sturdy surface.
► Only install the device on a level, stable and sufficiently sturdy surface.
► If necessary install a stable surface / floor plate under the adjustable feet.
34
05/2013-v1.0en
Commissioning
The following further instructions for installation are to be observed:




When installed on upper floors, the device must be placed as far as possible in
a corner of the room so that sufficient stability is guaranteed, even at max.
speed. The structure of the building must be checked in advance.
The treadmill should not be installed close to a radiator or other heat source.
This could cause technical defects.
Due to the moving parts on the underside, the device must not be placed directly on thick carpeting. A mat must be placed under the device. This will prevent lint from entering into the treadmill and at the same time reduce carpet
wear. A floor protection mat can be obtained from your WOODWAY dealer
(see "Options and accessories)
With larger PPS series devices particular attention must be paid to the ceiling/floor load capacity at the installation site. This must be higher than the total weight (weight of the device plus the dynamic weight of a running person)
and approved by an authorized authority with the treadmill representative.
The total weight is calculated as follows
(for example the PPS 70 Med):
Frame 172 x 121 cm = 2.081 m2 floor space. Treadmill net weight: 260 kg,
weight of runner (static): 150 kg, weight of runner when running (dynamic):
600 kg (up to four times the body weight) Total weight on the floor space: 860
kg .The required capacity of the floor space in this case is 413.26 kilograms
(approx. 415 kg) per m2.
Planning the
safe fall area:
When using the treadmill, especially fast movements (fast running, etc.) there is an
increased risk of falling. For this reason an area behind the treadmill, a "safe fall
area" of at least 2.00 x 1.00 m must be kept free, see Fig. 21 Page 35.
No obstacles may be located in this area! Objects, such as Furniture, plants, training
materials, ladders or other objects may not be placed in this area.
Pay attention to the full room height in the safety area, sloping ceilings may not extend into the safety area.
For treadmills with the direction reverse, the safety area must also be provided in
front of the treadmill!
Failure to follow this basic safety rule may result in serious accidents!

When making these adjustments it is important to ensure that the frame of the
treadmill does not twist. Lift frame of the treadmill to check for approximate equal
weight load.
The treadmill frame can deform slightly during transportation. This can be seen on
an even and level surface when the treadmill rocks slightly, or when one of the leveling feet does not touch the floor completely. In this case the treadmill can be realigned by applying the proper pressure on the railing.

Operation
WARNING
Danger Through Uncontrolled Running Surface Movement!
By stepping on the rear most part of the running surface where it is
rounded, the force of gravity can set the running surface in motion. There
is a danger of falling!
► The user must not step on the rounded part of the running surface
when mounting and dismounting!
8.1
Area of Application for Endurance Training
Medical PPS series slat-belt treadmills allow speeds of up to 24 km/h. It allows users
to reach their personal limits.
Using fall
protection!
For intense sprints of about 20 km/h and prolonged high stress runs where the
runner is subject to increased fatigue/exhaustion, WOODWAY strongly recommends
the use of fall protection with fall stop.
For these and similar applications the risk of injury is very high without the use of
fall protection. The treadmill is used at one's own risk. The manufacturer is not liable for personal injury and/or property damage, which could have been prevented
through the use of a fall protection system.
The following points must be observed before starting a training program:
Consult a doctor!
Warm-up and cooldown
Approval from a medical professional is required before starting an intensive
training program. This applies especially if heart disease or overweight exists or the
user has not been active for some time. Excessive exercise and overload are to be
avoided!
Warm up sufficiently before each training session to avoid injury. Carry out
stretching exercises for the legs as necessary before and after exercise. Personal
injury or soreness can be prevented through moderate stretching after training.
Determine heart
rate
For selecting the individual training intensity, it is important to determine one's own
heart or pulse rate. For this the use of a heart rate monitor is recommended. The
pulse can also be determined by placing the middle and index fingers together on
one side of the neck (a few centimeters outward from the larynx). Count the number of beats within a 15 second period and multiply by four to determine the beats
per Minute (BPM).
Maximum heart rate
The maximum heart rate depends on internal and external factors. The rate can be
determined mathematically. To determine your maximum heart rate subtract your
age from the number 220.
[Approximate value, formula from the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM)]
The actual maximum heart rate is exactly determined by medical personnel carrying
out stress test.
During training it is recommended not to exceed a value of 85% of maximum heart
rate. The preinstalled training programs are designed so that the heart rate remains
within a desired range. The target heart rate should be between 60 and 75% of
maximum heart rate.

WARNING
Danger Through Speeding Up of the Running Surface!
If the drive motor is stopped when set at an incline, the weight of the user
(gravity) may cause the running surface to accelerate (e.g. by pressing the
stop button, emergency stop, or by power failure)!
► Use special caution when stopping the drive motor when set at an
incline!
► Users must be made aware of dangers before use!

Using the Keypad
The keypad can be attached to a suitable point on the handrail so that the controls
are easily accessible to the runner.
The magnetic mount makes it possible to remove the keypad from the railing. In
this way the runner's supervisor can use the keypad as a remote control.
Fig. 25 Keypad with magnetic mount
Switch device on as0 Page 41 as described in sec. Make sure that the emergency
stop magnet is mounted on the magnetic switch with its pull cord, the clip is fixed
to the runner's clothes and that all emergency stop buttons are released.
Button functions:
[+] and [-]
BUTTONS:
[] and [] BUTTON:
„STOP“BUTTON:
The buttons on the keypad are used for setting the speed and incline. The
corresponding speed or incline indicators are used for control. When the desired
speed or incline has been reached, release the button.
With these buttons the user can raise or lower the running surface speed. The
running speed increases or decreases continually as long as the button is pressed.
Watch the speed indicator on the display during the adjustment. Release the button
at the desired speed.
With these buttons the user can adjust the incline of the device. The incline
increases or decreases continually as long as the button is pressed. Watch the
incline indicator on the display. Release the button at the desired incline.
The treadmill can be stopped with the stop button. The delay in braking the running
surface speed is comfortable, so the user still travels a few meters before the unit
stops depending on the previous speed. If the running surface belt is stopped, the
treadmill goes to the stop mode (indicated by the second mode LED from the top).
The set incline is maintained.
Pressing the stop button a second time causes the treadmill - should it still be at an
incline - to move back to its starting position (0% incline). The treadmill remains in
stop mode.

Distance and calorie
consumption:
In the display (Pos. 9) the distance in kilometers and calorie consumption of the
runner since the last time the treadmill was switched on are alternately shown at
intervals of 10 seconds. The upper value shows the distance and the lower value
the calorie consumption. The distance and calorie values are maintained after the
treadmill is stopped. They are deleted after restarting the treadmill using the keypad on the railing or the remote control.
Training duration:
The training duration (Pos. 8) is reset with each restart of the treadmill. The display
shows the time elapsed since the start of the treadmill in minutes and seconds. The
two values are separated by two dots that blink to indicate the seconds. The display
changes to indicate the hours and minutes, when the training takes longer than an
hour. Then the upper LED switches off and the lower starts flashing in its place to
show the new status.
Incline and pulse:
These two values (Pos. 7) are also indicated with the same display. A symbol
indicates the incline value as well as the speed value. A minus sign can only be
displayed if the treadmill features such a function. The direction of the incline can
only be changed via PC with a remote control or the keypad on the railing. After a
change the incline the new value will appear in the display for 5 seconds. The upper
of the two LEDs next to the display is active for this purpose. The current pulse frequency of the runner is shown after this period of 5 seconds, if the slope remains
unchanged; this status is indicated with the lower LED. If the incline is not changed,
the incline value is only shown in the display again when the wireless connection to
the pulse sensor on the runner's body is interrupted. The incline value is displayed
in the monitor if the treadmill does not have a pulse sensor.
Treadmill control

Before using the treadmill, the mounting aid must be removed from behind the
treadmill, so that the requirements on the safety area (clear "fall area") of at
least 2.00 x 1.00 m (length x width) behind the treadmill are met.
To prevent damage to the treadmill and the mounting aid, this must never
come in contact with the running surface. Observe the mounting aid manufacturer's instructions!
The climbing aid may only be used when the treadmill is not running.
In order to prevent patients from falling when mounting the treadmill, the supervising person (physician, therapist, qualified supervisor) must provide help
during mounting in the application areas of "movement therapy / rehabilitation
training in rehabilitation." The supervisor must be capable of stopping of the patient from possibly falling when mounting the treadmill.
POLAR Heart Rate Measurement
WOODWAY treadmills are equipped with a Polar heart rate measurement system.
This can be used with numerous POLAR transmitters.
Fig. 47 Chest strap with POLAR transmitter
The transfer of data transmission between transmitter and receiver is always "uncoded" (a coded transmission is not supported). If the supplied POLAR heart rate
chest strap used, the pulse rate is displayed in beats per minute (bpm). The chest
strap is only active when it is applied directly to the body (see figure). The strap
length can be adjusted via the flexible band on the chest strap. Adjust the belt
length so that it fits snugly but does not constrict. If the chest strap becomes loose
during training, a reliable heart rate can no longer be measured.
Positioning:
Cleaning:
Transmission signal:
The transmitter should be positioned so that it is below the pectoralis (chest
muscle) at the height of the sternum (breastbone), logo to the outside. Moisten the
contact surface of the transmitter in order to transmit the best signal possible from
the body to the measuring device.
The chest strap can be washed. Remove belt from the transmitter, the electrodes
must not be bent. Wash the strap and the electrodes with warm water and mild
soap. Do not machine wash the electrodes and do not use alcohol.
The transmitter has a reach of about 120 cm. Depending on the model the receiver
is located in the display of the device or below the emergency-off switch on the
railing. When positioning several treadmills next to each other ensure that a minimum distance between the devices is kept in order to avoid the interference of the
transmission signals between the runners.
ATTENTION
The treadmill-pulse measurement is not intended for diagnosis or medical
purposes, it is only used as an orientation value!

Interface Wire
To control the treadmill via PC or laptop the serial interface of the treadmill must be
connected with the computer via a so-called null-modem cable with two D-SUB
connectors (9-pin, female). This interface wire must be shielded and must not exceed a length of 5 meters. The cable is commercially available or can be obtained
from the WOODWAY customer service.
Fig. 49 USB Interface wire RS-232 (2 × D-SUB 9-pin), configuration "minimum"
null-modem wire
There are null-modem cables with different configurations (depending on whether a
"hardware handshake" and/or "hardware flow control" is desired). A typical configuration is shown in the following table. For controlling a WOODWAY treadmill usually
only the signals GND, TxD and RxD are required. If a "minimal" null-modem cable is
used, within the respective connector the pins 1, 4 and 6 as well as 7 and 8 should
be connected (see illustration).

Medical PPS series treadmills are devices in protection class I and have an application part in type B (railing). The power cord is normally not removable.
Permanent
connection
Checks and
measurements
Country-specific
requirements
PPS Series devices are usually not intended for permanent connection. The
installation of a permanent connection must be performed by suitably trained
personnel. For the safety checks on permanently connected equipment, the
applicable regulations in the country of use are to be observed.
Tests and measurements shall be carried out in a properly functional device. Any
repairs must be performed by qualified personnel before the technical safety
inspection.
When carrying out the prescribed measurements and checks, country-specific
regulations, instructions and test steps are to be observed.
Manufacturer's
recommendations
Prior to the tests, manufacturer's recommendations for the maintenance of the
treadmill are to be considered in accordance with EN 62353. For this reason these
instructions are to be read completely and carefully. If accessories are used, the
manufacturer of the product’s recommendations is to be observed accordingly.
Measurement technology checks are not intended for PPS series treadmills.
Multiple devices
If the treadmill is used along with other medical electrical equipment (e.g. for the
ergospirometry or with PC control software), the requirements set out on the
Medical Electrical system ("ME-System") in accordance with the section 3:22 of
standard EN 62353:2008 apply.
Data lines (RS-232) and functional grounds are to be separated (potential equalization) for the duration of the measurements, along with other connections to other
devices.
ATTENTION
For safety reasons, the use of power strips and the simultaneous operation of
other equipment on the same supply line are prohibited.
An exception can be made for the use of spirometry systems. In this case, the
requirements for technical safety inspection of ME systems according to EN
62353rd need to be considered.
Inspection intervals
Technical Safety Check (TSC) must be performed annually by qualified personnel
(electricians). These are "repeated safety checks" in accordance with Section 4.3 of
EN 62353:2008.
If the treadmill rarely used, under certain conditions, the test interval of 18 months
may be increased to a maximum of 24 months (see Appendix F of EN 62353).
These conditions are:
1.

treadmill provided?
9.
Power strips: Are power strips used? For safety reasons the use of power
strips is forbidden.
10.
Room circuit breaker: Is a line circuit breaker with the following properties
used to protection the line: Rated voltage 250V, rated current 16A and
tripping characteristic "C" (slow)?
11.
Power supply: Are other devices on the same supply line? For safety reasons
the treadmill must be used on a room connection with a separate line circuit
breaker.
The values determined in these tests are to be documented together with the
measurement method and evaluated (as basis for comparison for future standards).
Measurements are to be carried out in accordance with section 5.3 the standard.
The (i) protective conductor resistance (Section 5.3.2), and (ii) the device leakage
current (Section 5.3.3) are to be measured. A measurement of the leakage current
from the applied part according to section 5.3.3.3 of the standard is not necessary.
For the measurement of the device leakage current, the direct measurement methods or the difference current measurement can be used.
The replacement measuring method may not be used for measuring the device
leakage current.
For the measurement of protective conductor resistance, the side panels of the
treadmill must be removed. During the measurement the power cable must be
moved over the entire length. If changes in resistance are observed during movement, it must be assumed that the ground wire is damaged or has a bad connection.
68
05/2013-v1.0en
Maintenance and Cleaning
A measurement of the insulation resistance in accordance with section 5.3.4 of the
standard may NOT be performed.
If the measured values are between 90% and 100% of the allowable limit, the previously measured values (reference values) for the evaluation of the electrical safety
of the appliance shall be considered. Note that the measured values of the factory
test may differ slightly from the measured values at each treadmill location due to
different test conditions.
The measured values must not exceed the permissible limits specified in the following table:
Measurement
Limit
value
Protective conductor resistance - non-removable power cord
Resistance between the protective conductor of the power cord and
the protective conductor connected, exposed conductive parts of the
unit (treadmill frame + railing):
300 m
Protective conductor resistance - removable power cord
Resistance between the protective conductor of the power cord and
the protective conductor connected, exposed conductive parts of the
unit (treadmill frame + railing):
200 m
Resistance between the protective conductor contacts at each end of
the detachable power cord itself:
100 m
Device leakage current - direct measurement or differential current
measurement
0.5 mA
Measuring procedure defined in section 5.3.3 of EN 62353:
Function test
After the examination (inspection and measurement) a functional test must be
performed in accordance with paragraph "Function test" on page 65 of this manual;
this is to ensure that the treadmill has been restored to its necessary Condition for
"Intended use", i.e. that it is operational and safe.
Test report
The results report (test report) must meet the requirements the standard EN 62353
(see section 6.1 and Appendix G.1 of the standard).
A final safety evaluation of the appliance must be carried out and the deadline for
the next TSC set. In accordance with section 6.2 of the standard this review can only be carried out by one or more qualified electricians (as defined in IEC 61140),
who have adequate training on the inspected device.
The tested treadmill must be marked with the test date (inspection sticker).
The examiner and the person responsible for maintenance of the treadmill (usually
the representative or a person appointed by the representative) sign the test report.
This document is prepared in three versions, wherein a copy remains with the representative of the treadmill and one for the tester's records. The third copy should
be sent to WOODWAY customer service (WOODWAY maintains a file on each
treadmill). In this way, they can provide efficient and reliable support.
If technical safety inspections are required by the manufacturer, the operator must
carry these out or have these carried out according to the generally recognized
rules of technology and within the time specified by the manufacturer.
The reason for the safety checks is to determine if a medical device is operational at
the time of the audit, if it is in good condition and it is also expected to correspond
to safety inspection requirements until the next safety inspection.
For other medical devices, accessories, software and other items used for the
aforementioned medical devices, connected by the representative, the safety checks
apply accordingly.

Maintenance and Cleaning
Technical safety checks (after repeat tests or testing after maintenance and repair)
may only be performed by, one who has the responsibility for the proper implementation of safety controls due to their training, knowledge and experience gained by
practical activities, is not subject to instructions with reference to the inspection activities (i.e. is not subject to directives with his professional judgment during the
implementation and evaluation of the tests) and has the appropriate measuring and
testing equipment.
Personnel
requirements
The operator may only appoint persons that meet the above conditions for the
implementation of safety-related controls. The fulfillment of the prerequisites must

10.4
Disabling the Treadmill
Disabling is required if the safety of the treadmill is not guaranteed, or if is suggested that this could be the case.
A device must be disabled if e.g. the following symptoms occur: unusual noises, appearance of smoke, uncontrolled stopping or accelerating of the treadmill, rocking
of the running surface belt, damage to slats or other mechanical damage, spilling of
liquid on the treadmill, etc.
Disabling can also be to the WOODWAY Customer Service by telephone. In this
case, the treadmill representative is obliged to carry out the disabling and to confirm with WOODWAY customer service in writing.
Exceeding the test periods by several months (see previous chapter) also makes
temporary disabling of the treadmill necessary.
ATTENTION
The representative is responsible for property damage or personal damages
caused by incorrectly disabling or not disabling the treadmill!
The disabling of the treadmill must be such that (i) an unintentional and/or unauthorized restart can be ruled out and (ii) that the name of person who is authorized
to put the treadmill back into operation can be seen.
70
05/2013-v1.0en
Maintenance and Cleaning
The removal of the power plug from the outlet alone is not sufficient for the disabling of the treadmill, since third persons who have not been informed about the
disabling can plug the treadmill back into the power supply and use it.
The following measures must therefore be taken to disable a PPS series treadmill:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
The unit must be turned off and the power plug must be unplugged from the
wall socket (disconnection).
The treadmill must be marked "disabled" in a clear manner such as: "CAUTION
DANGER OF INJURY" the notice must be clearly displayed. In addition, the date
of disabling, reason for disabling and name of the person/organization that disabled must be specified.
It must be determined which (authorized) person the treadmill - possibly after
maintenance and repairs - may start up the treadmill again.
The fuses must be removed from the power supply box and kept in a safe
place. Attach the label below to the treadmill power supply box so that the fuse
box is covered.
Apply the safety label below to the plug of the power cord.

11.1
Visual inspection
Device designation, model and serial number of the relevant treadmill
What happened just before the defect?
Did the fault occur at once or gradually?
For unusual noises – where do the noises come from?
Was someone training on the treadmill at the time of the defect?
Describe any other relevant symptoms
Have any accidents occurred on the treadmill?
Was anyone injured?
Unusual Noises
Perform a visual inspection of the running surface belt and verify that the running
surface is not obstructed by an object under/in front of/near the device. Remove
any obstacles that could obstruct or damage the running surface.
Check whether the running surface inadvertently brushes against the side panel and
leads to excessive wear. In this case correct the gaps between running surface and
side panel.
Toothed V-belt
running surface belt
The teeth on the bottom of the tread belt are sufficiently lubricated in the factory to
minimize the noise. In certain cases it may occur that the combination toothed Vbelt (also see "running surface belt") rubs against the pulley guides, thus producing
whistling sounds. In this case, the use of a small amount of lubricant (Molykote or
similar product) applied to the edges of the endless belt can contribute to noise reduction. Do not use too much grease, as this only leads to unnecessary accumulation of dust and dirt.
Toothed belt drive
system
As with the running surface belt, the use of a small amount of lubricant on the edge
of the belt is only necessary to reduce a "whistling" of the belt. Lubricant should
always be used sparingly.
Bearings
05/2013-v1.0en
When noises come from the bearings, bearing damage is to be expected In this
case the bearing must be replaced by a trained and authorized technician.









11.3
Is the emergency stop mushroom released
(or emergency stop button on the external display)?
Is the treadmill connected to the power source?
If the main switch on the power connector box switched on?
Fuse (s) blown? (Replace fuse)
Can the fan is to cool the servo controller (on the right) be heard?
Does the socket to which the treadmill is connected supply power
(e.g. could the circuit breaker for the supply line have been triggered)?
Has one of the device fuses melted?
Is the emergency stop magnet placed on the magnetic switch?
Belt does not move
If the display and/or lifting mechanism works but the treadmill does not accelerate
when the [+] button is pressed, do the following:


Turn off the power at the main switch and unplug the power cord.
Check if the running surface belt is be blocked by an object and if so, remove.
Wait about 60 seconds and put the unit back into operation.
11.4
Free Moving Running Surface Belt
It is always possible to rotate the running surface belt slowly when the drive is not
engaged. The more energy you expend to move the running surface, the greater
the motor's braking effect ("short circuit brake"). This behavior is normal.
When the drive is not engaged ("Stand-by" mode) the running surface belt is
slowed down by short circuit of the three motor phases. A totally free moving running surface belt in this case, however, might be defective short circuit relay or a
broken wire.
If the treadmill is turned on with the switch on the display and the indicator in the
display is active, this is a sign that the motor is defective or it is a failure of the servo controller.
In both cases the treadmill must be disabled immediately according to the instructions in this manual.
11.5
Faulty or Flashing Display
Probable causes: Power supply too low
An excessive load or excessive consumption on the same line may be causing problems. Connect the device to a specially fused power supply line or remove the other
power consuming devices from the mains.

Serial RS-232 Interface
Possible causes of a serial interface malfunction are:



11.7
Defective wire connection in adequate pin allocation for the components
Incorrectly set component protocols (Treadmill, PC, EKG, Spiroergometry)
Improperly configured connection settings between the components
(COM Port)
Electrostatic Discharge
By running on the device the runner can become electrostatically charged. If they
touch a metal part of the device in this state, it can cause an electrostatic discharge
from the user. Under certain circumstances an electrostatic discharge may cause a
malfunction of the device. However, such discharges are normally harmless for the
user and the device. The most common cause of static electricity lies in the choice
of clothing, the condition of the shoe soles and very dry air.
Try other clothing and other footwear and moisten the room with commercial humidifier if you measured very dry air.
11.8
Sources of Electromagnetic Interference
Close proximity to, for example, X-ray equipment, powerful motors or isolating
transformers must be avoided because of possible electromagnetic interference.
Electromagnetic interference can affect the operation of your treadmill.
11.9
Interference of the POLAR Heart Rate Monitor
During the transfer of data from the transmitter to the receiver the POLAR heart
rate monitoring may receive interference, which is triggered by other devices in the
proximity of the treadmill. The most common causes for this are:

