    The RFP is an invitation to submit offers for The Supply and Install of a High-performance Adaptable Treadmill.
    The purpose of this high-performance, accessible, and adaptable treadmill is to accommodate individuals with higher-weights, larger bodies, and a broad range of physical and sensory disabilities. The equipment will be used for a range of movement-based exercise study designs.
    One high-performance treadmill is required to accommodates individuals up to 600 lbs, and includes several safety and accommodating options, such as an adjustable handrail, a safety-harness with fall-stop prevention, and unweighing system which allows for precise adjustment of body weight to optimize adaptability and access. The treadmill also needs a running surface that is more shock absorbing than conventional treadmills, operating at a range of speeds (starting as low as 0.1 mph) to accommodate all gait abilities, to be equipped with incremental incline and decline features.
    Required add-ons to accommodate a wide range of physical abilities and study designs, including but not limited to: reverse belt rotation, adjustable handrail, unweighing systems to accommodate at least 350 lbs (with safety features for emergency stop of unweighing and wearable harnessing equipment to accommodate various body sizes and abilities).
