Heart Rate Monitoring
This section provides basic concepts of heart rate monitoring
so you can better understand how to use it to reach the fitness
level you desire.
1.2.1. What is exercise intensity?
Exercise intensity is simply a measure of how hard you are
working at a given time during exercise. The ACSM, the world’s
leading medical and scientific authority on sports medicine and
fitness, recommends that every individual involved in an
exercise program know how hard his/her body is working
during exercise.
Your heart provides key information for determining how
intensely you are working during exercise. Your heart rate (how
many times your heart beats per minute) is really an efficiency
rating for your entire body. The number of times your heart
beats during each minute of exercise is a measurement of the
intensity of the exercise. If your heart rate is low, exercise
intensity is low; if your heart rate is high, your exercise intensity
is high.
1.2.2. What is maximum heart rate?
Maximum Heart Rate (MHR) is the maximum attainable heart
rate your body can reach before total exhaustion. True
maximum heart rate is measured during a fatigue or “stress”
test. This test must be done in a clinical setting and is not
practical or accessible for most people.
WARNING
The use of this formula assumes no
underlying heart or respiratory disease or
other condition, which could be adversely
affected by exercise. Consult your doctor
before using this chart!
Your maximum heart rate can be established with a high
degree of accuracy using the following simple formula:
Estimated Maximum Heart Rate = 220 minus your age.
14
Introduction
If John is 35 years old, what is his estimated maximum heart
rate?
John’s estimated maximum heart rate is: 220 - 35 = 185
185 beats per minute is the estimated maximum number of
times John’s heart can beat before his body would fatigue or
“max out.” This number is extremely helpful because it
indicates the absolute highest exercise intensity John can
handle before his body wears out. The ACSM says that during
exercise, John should keep his heart rate below his maximum
so that he will not become exhausted and have to quit. In fact,
the ACSM gives John a specific percentage range of his
maximum heart rate to exercise in, known as his Target Heart
Rate Zone.(THRZ).
1.2.3. Why should I monitor exercise intensity?
Your heart is the most important muscle in your body and, like
all muscles, must be exercised regularly to remain strong and
efficient. According to fitness experts, exercise is more effective
when you work out in a specific heart rate range or zone. This
is referred to as your Target Heart Rate Zone (THRZ) and is
reflected by the number of heart beats per minute. This zone
can vary greatly depending on your age, fitness level and
various other factors. If your heart rate is too low during
exercise, your body reaps little or no benefit. This means you’re
not likely to see the results you want, like weight loss or
increased endurance. If your heart rate is too high during
exercise, you may tire too quickly, become fatigued or even run
the risk of injury.
Monitoring exercise intensity helps you to stay at a level of
exercise that allows you to accomplish your goals. In fact, the
ACSM recommends that, in order to get the most benefit from
your cardiovascular exercise, you should work within your
THRZ for at least 20 to 60 minutes per workout, 3 to 5 times per
week. Knowing your exercise intensity (THRZ) will allow you to
work at the right level of exercise to accomplish this.
15
Introduction
1.2.4. How do I determine my Target Heart Rate Zone?
Your THRZ represents the minimum and maximum number of
times your heart should beat in one minute of exercise. The
ACSM recommends that all individuals should work within a
Target Heart Rate Zone of 60% to 85% of Maximum Heart
Rate. This means that your heart rate during exercise should
not fall below 60% or rise above 85% of your maximum heart
rate. Let’s look at John from our earlier example. John is 35
years old, so his estimated maximum heart rate is 220 minus
35, or 185 beats per minute (bpm). The ACSM
recommendation is that John should exercise between 60%
and 85% of 185 beats per minute to stay in his THRZ. Let’s
determine John’s THRZ:
• John’s estimated maximum heart rate: 185 bpm
• Lower target limit: 185 (MHR) X 0.6 111 bpm
• Upper target limit: 185 (MHR) X 0.85 157 bpm
• John’s target heart rate zone: 111-157 bpm
111-157 beats per minute is the range or zone for John’s heart
rate during exercise in order to achieve his goals. If John is a
beginning exerciser, he’ll want to stay at the low end of his
THRZ. If John is a more advanced exerciser, he may want to
work at the higher end of his THRZ to challenge himself more.
The following list shows the different intensity levels within a
target heart rate zone:
• Beginner: 60% of MHR
• Weight Loss: 75% of MHR
• Aerobic: 85% of MHR
1.3.
Heart Rate Monitors
Heart rate monitors are built into the treadmill’s pulse grips, and
a wireless chest strap monitor is also available on residential
models.
Exercising too hard can put you at a risk for injury. A heart rate
monitor reminds you of the safe and effective heart rate
16
Introduction
intensity at which you should exercise and warns you if your
workouts go too far.
If you want to reach your exercise goals, it’s important to stay in
your THRZ during workouts. A heart rate monitor provides a
reminder of the intensity and quality of each workout session.
Landice heart rate monitors are used to monitor your level of
exercise intensity during workouts. Pulse meters have a high
margin for error. Manual pulse measurements during exercise
can result in errors as high as ±15 beats per minute, with the
risk of potential error increasing as heart rate increases.
1.3.1. Wireless Chest Strap Monitoring System
Note:
The wireless chest strap is optional.
The Wireless Chest Strap transmitter works best against bare
skin. Because sweat (salt water) is an electrical conductor, the
transmitter will work over a T-shirt if the shirt is wet with sweat.
If you are having trouble getting an accurate pulse reading, try
wearing the belt against bare skin.
Figure 1-2. Wireless Chest Strap Transmitter
1. Center the transmitter on the chest as high under the
pectoral muscles (breasts) as possible. Tighten the strap so
that the belt is as tight as possible without being
uncomfortable.
2. A tube of Landice Cardio Gel was shipped with your
treadmill. Pull the belt away from your chest and apply a
small dab of gel onto each electrode. This will ensure a
strong electrical contact between the transmitter and your
chest.
17
Introduction
1.3.2. Contact Heart Rate Monitoring System
The Contact Heart Rate Monitoring System is designed for use
at walking speeds. A natural running motion involves using
your arms to maintain balance. Because the Contact Heart
Rate Monitoring System requires your arms to remain
stationary, we recommend using the pulse grips at speeds of
less than approximately 4 mph (6.4 km/h) or the fastest speed
at which you are comfortable walking.
The Contact Heart Rate Monitoring System can be used in
place of the wireless chest strap to perform any of the following
functions:
• Monitor your Time in Zone
• Heart Rate Control (HRC) program adjustment
• Help you maintain your Target Pulse
To use the Contact Heart Rate Monitoring System:
1. Switch to any screen that shows Pulse.
2. Grab the pulse grip portion of the center rail. When you
place your hands on the grips the display flashes. The
pulse will “beat” briefly and then display your heart rate.
Your heart rate will be continuously monitored while your
hands remain on the grips.
The HRC programs make speed and elevation adjustments to
maintain your target heart rate while your hands remain on the
grips. If you remove your hands the HRC programs will not
change speed or elevation until you place your hands on the
grips. These programs are available on the Cardio and
Executive models.
Note:
18
If you are wearing the wireless chest strap, the heart rate
from the pulse grips overrides the wireless signal from the
chest strap while your hands are on the pulse grips. When
you release the grips, the treadmill uses the wireless chest
strap signal for pulse calculation.
Introduction

Treadmill Program Capabilities
The treadmill has the following program capabilities:
• Built-in Programs: You enter the program’s maximum time,
speed and incline. 5 Built-in Programs. See page 45.
• User-Defined Programs: A User-Defined Program looks
and runs exactly like a Built-In Program. The primary
difference between Built-In and User-Defined Programs is
customization. User-Defined Programs allow you to manually
edit individual segments. User Programs. See page 48.
• Specific Goal Programs: The numeric keypad is used to
enter Time and Distance. Goal Programs. See page 51.
• Heart Rate Control (HRC) Programs: The heart rate
program will automatically vary the speed and incline based
upon your target heart rate. This target training maximizes
your workout performance while minimizing your workout
time. See page 52.
• Fitness Tests: The Fitness Tests will measure your fitness
level based on your age, gender, and performance. Your
Fitness level is calculated using different protocols. See
“Fitness Testing” on page 55.

be pinched beneath the treadmill as the treadmill elevates
up and down.
8. Turn on the power switch located next to the power cord
and make sure the safety lanyard block is pushed in. Start
the treadmill and increase speed to 2 mph. Check that the
treadbelt is tracked (centered) and not moving off to one
side. If belt is going toward one side, follow tracking
instructions in step 13. If belt is tracked (centered) correctly,
proceed to walk on the treadmill at 2 mph. If belt feels like it
is slipping under your feet, follow tension instructions in
step 12.
9. When belt tension and tracking are both correct, move to
the next step.
10. Start treadmill and walk at 2 mph for 20 minutes, walking
from front to back over the entire surface, to properly “walk
in” the lubrication.
39
Installation
11. As you walk, test the treadmill by adjusting speed and
incline. Ensure all displays light.
12. The treadbelt is tracked (centered) and tensioned by the
take-up screws located at the back of the treadmill
(Figure 2-24). If the treadbelt is too loose (slipping as you
walk), turn both screws clockwise by 1/4 turn to tighten
using the 9/16” socket.
CAUTION
DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN the belt. The rollers
and motor can be damaged.
13. If the treadbelt does not track straight, adjust speed to
3 mph and tighten the screw on the side to which the belt is
pulling by 1/4 turn. Allow time for belt to adjust,
approximately 2-3 minutes. Adjust by
1/4 turn as necessary to achieve proper tracking. If more
than 3/4 turn is necessary, loosen the opposite side by
1/4 turn.
14. Recheck tension and tracking to confirm the adjustments.

4. Fitness Testing
4.1.
Introduction
The Rehab treadmill has built-in tests that measure fitness
level based on your age, gender, and performance.
A person’s fitness level can be measured by the amount of
oxygen their body can consume while exercising at maximum
capacity. The maximum amount of oxygen (in milliliters) an
individual can use in one minute per kilogram of body weight is
referred to as VO2 Max.
When you perform one of the fitness tests described in this
section, the treadmill calculates approximate VO2 Max and
provides a fitness evaluation.
Note: Scores may vary due to line voltages, component
tolerances, and individual capabilities. For a more
accurate VO2 Max calculation, take the average of the
Balke and Firefighter Fitness Test scores.
4.2.
Balke Fitness Test
Note: You must use the pulse grips or optional wireless chest
strap for this test.
This is a walking pace, variable incline fitness test. The test
increases in difficulty to raise your heart rate. Upon reaching
your Target Heart Rate, the test ends and the treadmill
calculates your fitness assessment. Parameters cannot be
modified. Your age determines the test’s target heart rate and
the scaling of the fitness assessment.
Test Parameters:
•
•
•
Maximum Speed: 4.4 mph
Maximum Incline: 15%
Maximum Heart Rate: 80% of Maximum Heart Rate
(See Heart Rate Monitoring sections).
To run the test:
1. Press PROGRAMS to view the programs selection screen.
To scroll through the programs, either continue to press
55
Fitness Testing
PROGRAMS or use the arrow keys. Select the Balke
Fitness Test by pressing ENTER.
2. Use the keypad or arrow to
enter your age (10 to 99),
then press ENTER or wait
3 seconds.
3. Enter your gender using the
center arrow to toggle to
MALE or FEMALE. Press
ENTER or wait 3 seconds.
Note: The calculated target heart rate displayed before you start
the test is derived from statistical heart rate capacity
averages. (See “Heart Rate Monitoring” on page 14.) If you
are uncomfortable with the target heart rate displayed or
feel discomfort during the fitness test, stop the test.
Note: You must hold onto the pulse grips or wear the optional
wireless chest strap for the entire test. If the treadmill
loses the heart rate signal for more than 30 seconds the
test is terminated.
4. Press START to begin the test.
This automated test increases in difficulty from segment to
segment until you reach the target heart rate. When you reach
the target heart rate a 30-second countdown follows and ends
the test. Any key presses during the test (other than ENTER)
will end the test.
When you begin, the Heart Rate Status screen shows your
Target Pulse, Time, Heart Rate Status and Time in Zone.
Upon completion the treadmill displays your VO2 Max score
and fitness assessment based on your performance. Use the
tables below to interpret your score based on your age and
gender.

5. Maintenance and Troubleshooting
5.1.
Cleaning
It is recommended to clean the console and screen after each
workout.
General: Vacuum around and under the treadmill at least once
a month. Wipe any sweat from the treadmill after each workout.
Console and Display Screen: Wipe exposed console
surfaces with a microfiber cloth, dampened with a mixture of
30 parts water to 1 part Simple Green® cleaner.

Wireless Chest Strap (Optional): The transmitter activates
when the belt is moist. To conserve battery life, wipe the
electrodes dry after each use. Clean monthly with mild soap
and water and wipe dry.
CAUTION
5.2.
To avoid damaging the electrodes, do not use
abrasives to clean the chest strap. Do not bend or
stretch the electrode strips, especially when
storing the chest strap.
Maintenance
WARNING
Lethal voltages and moving parts capable of
causing serious injury are exposed when the
motor cover is removed. Under no circumstances
should the motor cover be removed except by a
Landice factory-authorized technician.
5.2.1. Lubrication
In institutional settings, Landice recommends lubricating the
underside of the treadbelt with Landice SlipCoat every 3,000
miles. See instructions included with SlipCoat Lubricant.

Maintenance and Troubleshooting
5.2.2. Treadbelt Tracking Adjustment
Note: On the L7 model you should see an equal gap on either
side of the treadbelt. On L8 models, a yellow warning label
is visible on the deck from the rear of the treadmill when
the treadbelt is not tracked correctly.
The treadbelt is tracked by means of the two 9/16” hex head
bolts at the rear of the treadmill. Tightening (clockwise) the bolt
on the side of the treadmill that the belt has moved towards and
loosening the bolt on the opposite side an equal amount, will
cause the belt to move toward the center. Adjustments should
be made in ¼-turn increments, with the treadmill running at
2 to 3 mph. Allow at least 30 seconds for the belt to stabilize
between each adjustment. To ensure proper belt tracking and
alignment, the treadmill must be placed on a stable and level
surface.
5.2.3. Treadbelt Tensioning
The treadbelt is tensioned at the factory but may require
adjustment after installation. Need for tensioning is indicated by
uneven belt speed and may be felt as sudden stopping of the
treadbelt when your foot comes down on the belt.
To check belt tension: run treadmill at 1 mph, then walk on it. If
the belt does not feel like it is slipping or hesitating, then the
belt is tensioned correctly. If the belt slips/hesitates, then it is
not fully tensioned.
The same hex head bolts used for tracking also tension the
treadbelt. To tighten the treadbelt, turn both bolts clockwise
exactly the same amount, ¼-turn at a time. Failure to turn them
equally will affect belt tracking. DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN.
Continue checking for treadbelt slipping. When treadbelt is fully
tensioned, speed up treadmill to 5 mph. Then, while jogging
lightly, check for any sudden slipping/hesitating of the treadbelt.
Repeat treadbelt tensioning if required.

Maintenance and Troubleshooting
5.2.4. Motor Drive Belt Tensioning
WARNING
Moving parts can cause serious injury. Always
unplug treadmill before placing hands beneath
the treadbelt!
CAUTION
DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN. Over-tightening the
motor drive belt can damage the drive motor and
front roller.
Drive belt tension is preset at the factory. The belt is tensioned
by a nut located under the motor pan. This nut is screwed to a
hook attached to the motor bracket. Turning the nut clockwise
tightens the nut, pulling down the motor bracket, which tightens
the drive belt. To measure the tension, twist the drive belt
between the motor and the drive roller. Ideal tension allows the
drive belt to be easily twisted 45°. If you cannot twist the belt to
at least 45°, it is too tight.
5.2.5. Service Checklist
• Tension and track treadbelt
• Lubricate belt and vacuum treadmill
• Check drive belt tension
