  • Causa
    A performance issue with the t2100 treadmills can cause uncontrolled walking belt motion during a stress exercise test. this motion can be seen as an unexpected slowing, followed by sudden belt acceleration in either the forward or backward direction. when this occurs, engaging the emergency stop button (estop) will not immediately stop the belt. rather, it will coast to a stop within 35 seconds when slowing from maximum speed. the sudden change in belt speed and/or direction can result in a fall and injury to the patient.
  • Acción
