I am thinking of getting a treadmill to use at home. I have never used one and my balance is pretty shaky so I don't know how safe they are to use. Are there any safety features that would make using a treadmill safer for someone with ataxia?
Somebody recently mentioned using a treadmill with a safety harness but this would be far too expensive to have at home. However, for anyone that's interested, I have found a couple of treadmills that have side rails for extra safety (see links below). The problem is that they are much more expensive than standard treadmills.
