Bodycraft Spacewalker Compact Treadmill

Members who have this treadmill have found it to be fully accessible and easy to operate. When setup to operate it requires a relatively small area of 2 feet by 4 feet. There are only 4 operating buttons and they are slightly raised from the control surface and can be easily felt. No need to worry about assembly as it comes fully assembled in the box. You only need to unbox it and lower the platform to start walking.

A rather unique feature of this treadmill is that when closed it may be placed on its side and can function as a coffee table or bench.
New from $529.94
