Ugo Basile introduces an original TREADMILL for rats and mice. The same device is suitable for tests on either rats or mice. Shock option incorporated in all models

The 47300 Treadmill is a compact and user-friendly device: test settings & monitoring are managed on the 4”3 touch-screen of the attached control unit.

Endurance, distance (absolute and relative) and speed are automatically measured and recorded.

Speed can be selected from 3 to 100m/min, in steps of 1m/min, in constant, accelerating, custom ramps modes.

Our model incorporates a shock grid at the back of the treadmill to deliver a mild electric shock, when an aversive stimulus is required. Shock can be preset from 0 to 2mA (in 0.1mA steps), with a frequency of 1, 2 or 3 Hz.

The running-lane assembly can be manually tilted from -25° to +25°, in steps of 5°. A special lane-assembly for tethered mice is also available in alternative to the standard model.

X-PAD Software to set the experiment and manage the results is included free of charge.

Exercise is a multifactorial activity that affects virtually every organ and tissue in the body. Not only does exercise contribute many health benefits, but lack of exercise is im-plicated in many chronic health problems.

As evidence continues to accumulate concerning the impressive range of health benefits that exercise confers, biomedical researchers have increasingly become interested in conducting systematic studies of exercise to further define those benefits”.

Fatigue is a common and frequently poorly-understood symptom in many diseases and disorders. New preclinical assays of fatigue may help to improve current understanding of fatigue-like behavior in rodents and many other exercise paradigms and study future treatment of fatigue.

Treadmills are rolling belts (tapis-roulants) with presettable speed and adjustable uphill and downhill inclination (slope), enabling forced exercise training and accurate testing of fatigue in lab animals.

Treadmill running has been used extensively over the past decades to study behavioral, physiological, biochemical, and, more recently, molecular responses to both acute exer-cise stress and chronic exercise training. Although investigators have used a wide variety of species (…) for treadmill running studies, they have used rodents in most of these studies.

Treadmill running has the distinct advantage over other forms of exercise, including spontaneous wheel running and swimming, that the total amount of external work done by the rat can be easily calculated.

Treadmill running may be construed as a form of forced exercise in which the animal does not have a choice of participating in the activity. Because of this, noxious stimuli (e.g., electric shock and bursts of high-pressure air) may be needed to motivate the animals to exercise”
