BODYGUARD DISSIPATION SYSTEM BDS+

Bodyguard Dissipation System (BDS) is designed to achieve 3 key goals: Minimize Impact Energy, Maximize Foot Stability and Simulate an Athletic Track Feel. To achieve this, Bodyguard treadmills rely on more than just high quality shock absorbers; rather, BDS is engineered as a complementary system to the entire treadmill platform.

Minimizing impact energy without sacrificing foot stability is a challenge for many treadmill manufacturers.  One solution to reduce impact energy is to create a platform that flexes and absorbs the user’s down force. However, the more a platform flexes, the less stable the surface is for the user, increasing the risk of lateral injuries related to foot instability. Furthermore, high amounts of deck flex often result in a scenario treadmill users call “kickback”. “Kickback” occurs when a heavily flexed deck returns sharply to its flat state when the weight of the user is lifted. This results in an uncomfortable bouncy feel to the running surface and is very common in poor quality decks or decks that are too thin in relation to their length (e.g. a ¾ inch thick deck that is 54" long will have less flex than a ¾ inch thick deck that is 60” long resulting in less ‘kickback’).

The importance of maximizing foot stability and providing a non-shifting running surface for a user can not be underestimated therefore Bodyguard’s shock absorption system focuses on minimizing impact energy without relying on deck or frame flex. BDS achieves this by custom shaping a unique “visco-elastic polymer” that dissipates the impact energy much more efficiently than standard rubber elastomers.The unique shape increases the surface area of shock absorber in contact with the deck resulting in superior energy transfer and less deck flex. Furthermore, “visco-elastic polymers” do not succumb to heat enforced break down and become crusty like standard rubber elastomers do. As a result BDS offers sustained high quality impact protection for the life of the treadmill unlike competitive products that gradually degrade to the point of requiring replacement.

Further to maximizing foot stability Bodyguard has completely reengineered its premium treadmill frames to provide the most stable “pound-for-pound” platform available. By utilizing an exclusive X-Frame design Bodyguard is able to provide stronger, more stable platforms with less frame torsion than standard frames of the same weight. Also, Bodyguard’s custom foot stabilizers adjust and pivot meaning X-Frames are easily leveled on uneven surfaces.  And when the treadmill is used on an incline, the pivoting action of the stabilizer results in the entire surface area of the feet remaining flat against the floor, again providing improved stability and a superior comfort and feel for the user.

The complete redesign and integration of BDS with our X-Frames successfully achieved ourgoals of minimizing impact energy and maximizing foot stability. However, it was imperative that Bodyguard treadmills maintained the wonderful natural running track feel they are synonymous for. Because all the components of the BDS system (frame, shock absorbers, decks, belts) are fully customizable, engineers were free to modify the specifications of the key components to gain the desired feel a user would experience when they plant their foot. In order to be sure we were targeting the most natural track feel we investigated the surfaces used by the world’s leading athletic track manufacturers. Companies such as Mondo, whose surfaces can be found on both the Beijing and London Olympic Athletic Tracks were tested for a range of specifications such as their shore hardness and shock absorption as well as their slip stability. From these tests we were able to establish the target values we wished to simulate for our treadmill users. The result of this process is the most natural track feel Bodyguard has ever produced, one that is fully customized to each treadmill frame. Whether you prefer the space saving benefits of our standard sized frames or the robust performance of our premium frames, Bodyguard customers can have confidence that each and every model is engineered with a complimentary BDS system designed to simulate that wonderful natural track feel.

ADVANCED FRICTION DETECTION SYSTEM

Advanced Friction Detection System (AFDS), is a system watchdog that uses Bodyguard’s built-in custom amperage reader to monitor the treadmill’s performance and warn users when the unit is operating at an “elevated” level. An AFDS reading above 12 amps generally indicates excessive deck and belt wear and the need for maintenance. Far more precise than using mileage or hours of usage as a guideline for scheduled maintenance, AFDS gives you real-time updates via the iTek key and allows users to forget about monitoring usage levels. If an AFDS warning appears, it indicates that the drive system has been drawing high amperage, which is a primary cause of parts wear. If that occurs, simply follow the maintenance instructions, which usually involve simply cleaning the belt and deck. AFDS is so intuitive that if a user chooses to ignore the maintenance warning and continues to operate the treadmill to the point where the drive system is at risk then it will shut down until the problem is resolved. The current AFDS reading can be accessed at any time via the iTek key, meaning a user can easily see how the system is running at any time.

Service Tip: Bodyguard’s Customer Service Department recommends that users wipe down the deck and the underside of the belt with a dry anti-static cloth and apply Bodyguard lubricant to the belt and deck if the AFDS is above 10amps.

4-WAY DECK

All Bodyguard Fitness’ deck surfaces are finished with a multi-layer phenolic coating to reduce belt friction and wear. After many years of heavy-duty use these deck coatings can wear through, so to provide better long-term value to customers and avoid expensive after sales parts purchases, Bodyguard layers both sides of the deck. Therefore, when the phenolic coating is worn down on one side, simply flip the deck over and use the other side. Furthermore, users who only wear a small section at one end of a deck can get even more use out of each side by rotating it thanks to Bodyguards unique 4-Way Deck system. 

Long lasting surfaces combined with our exclusive 4-way flip and rotate system means Bodyguard decks can last thousands of more miles and are just another reason how Bodyguard treadmills keep saving you money many years after the purchase date

ELECTRONIC STRIDE CONTROL

Electronic Stride Control (ESC) is an electronic braking system built-into Bodyguard’s Palladium Drive Lower Control Boards that prevents the running belt from over speeding and offers “traction” during the “push off” stage of the stride when exercising on an incline.

Without some sort of braking system, a treadmill belt will usually over speed when  a user operates the treadmill on a high incline. The weight of the user combined  with gravity creates a heavy downward force that strikes the angled belt each time the foot plants. As a result, the treadmill belts tend to speed up for an instant and travel faster than their desired value. Furthermore, at the end of the stride when the user attempts to “push off” with the rear foot, to drive their weight up and forward into the incline, if there is nothing providing traction then the belt can simply be pushed back and over sped by the user. This action will lengthen the stride as the rear foot stays in contact with the belt longer than desired and causes the users running action to be modified increasing the risk of over stretching and injury.

Without the inclusion of some type of braking system, a belt can only slow once it loses momentum, something that quality treadmills that incorporate high inertia motor flywheels and low-friction belts struggle to do before the next foot strikes. 

The best way to experience the benefits of ESC is to try it for yourself. ESC comes standard on every Bodyguard Fitness treadmill, and to make it easy for users to experience the difference ESC makes, we have created an ESC test that allows you to turn the ESC feature on and off while using the treadmill at any speed or incline. This allows you to experience first hand how ESC changes the feel for you and provides more traction during the push off stage when on an incline. If you wish to confirm if another treadmill has a similar braking system simply start the treadmill and while holding onto the handrails, place one foot on a foot rail and with the other foot push back on the belt and attempt to over speed it. If the belt just speeds up and does not slow back down to the correct speed until you stop pushing that means there is no built-in braking mechanism. However, if you feel the belt pull back against your force and slow down even when you keep trying to over speed it, then that indicates there is a built-in braking system. How quickly the system activates and slows down the belt identifies the quality of that braking system. 

If you are considering purchasing a treadmill and plan on incorporating incline during programs, then be sure to test all units while you are on an incline to see that they feel as comfortable at 15% as they do on the flat. If you find it much easier to maintain your correct running form on the Bodyguard Fitness unit then it is most likely the Electronic Stride Control system making all the difference.

SILICONE KEYS

Silicone Keys offer many advantages over standard membrane or plastic keys such as being more responsive, durable and reliable. As a result, Bodyguard Fitness uses Silicone Keys on the main keypad on all our equipment. These principle keys are the ones used most often, especially during exercise, and are prone to wearing out if an unsuitable material is used. With Silicone Keys a user gets a response even if they just catch the edge of the key, which is very common when in the middle of workout with the heart pounding. And because Silicone Keys do not crack over time, your console will continue performing like new long into the future.

PALLADIUM DRIVE

Bodyguard Fitness’ custom-built Palladium Drive is a commercial-grade lower control board that is included on every Bodyguard treadmill. The lower control board is one of the most important components of a treadmill, responsible for regulating the power to the motor and maintaining smooth, consistent belt movement at any speed or incline. The lower control board is also one of the parts put under most stress so it is very important that this component is of high quality so to be durable and offer consistent long-term performance.

Unlike many competitors who offer different series of equipment where only their top range receives the premium electronic components, with Bodyguard thats is not the case. The exact same Palladium Drive that has a proven track record in our commercial client's facilities such as hotels, condominiums and schools is the same one you will find in all our residential models.

As well as offering durability benefits, Bodyguard Fitness’ custom-built Palladium Drives offer several performance benefits that regular lower boards do not. Firstly, Palladium Drives include a natural stride control system that prevents belt over speeding on any incline. This system called Electronic Stride Control is of the type usually only found on Club Series equipment. To learn more about Electronic Stride Control, see the ESC section.

Another performance benefit that Palladium Drives offer is the ability to provide much higher acceleration speeds than regular drives. Due to the Palladium Drives ability to provide more power, more efficiently than regular boards, users can simulate true high-acceleration sprint workouts just like are done on a running track. To learn more about this high performance feature visit the Turbo Training section.

Finally, the lower control boards are responsible for regulating the speed control system of a treadmill which means they take the information provided by the speed sensor and process the exact amount of power the motor requires to maintain a smooth consistent feel. Palladium Drives are tremendously fast and accurate at this process and as a result Bodyguard Fitness is able to incorporate an extremely accurate speed detection system. This advanced speed detection system is capable of taking speed readings from the optical sensor hundreds of times per second. Where many competitors use simple speed-reading systems such as those where a single magnet is attached to the front roller, or incorporate smaller discs with less teeth that provide less readings per second, Bodyguard can offer a far more advanced system due to the Palladium Drive’s ability to process the greater amount of data. The result is quicker, smoother belt speed adjustments as each foot strikes and lifts off resulting in a natural exercise feel for the user.

DIGITAL CONTACT HEART RATE

Bodyguard’s Digital Contact Heart Rate Sensors offer far more accurate Heart Rate readings than standard analog sensors. Also, our dual sensor plates provide improved contact readings, which is a big advantage for users who traditionally get intermediate contact heart rate readings due to “soft” pulses in the hands.

The T-45 console features a 6.5" blue L.C.D. with a 20 x 13 block profile surrounded by information windows showing the parameters of the exercise under way and a 16 character alphanumeric message center at the bottom of the screen that scrolls information during and after a workout.

It also includes a range of advanced user functions including customizable quick keys as well as a built-in wireless heart rate receiver that displays the pulse being transmitted from compatible 5kHz heart rate chest straps in range. (Note: chest strap not included)

The main keypad has eight keys made from durable silicone that will not crack over time and the console also includes a USB port for software upgrades and a convenient reading rack/device holder.

  

ALPHANUMERIC MESSAGE CENTER: Situated below the profile the 16-character alphanumeric message center shows menu information, workout parameters during and after a workout as well as maintenance and error data when necessary.

COOL DOWN KEY: Press this key to begin a cool-down period on compatible programs.

INCREASE/DECREASE INCLINE KEYS: Pressing these keys allows you to modify the angle of the walking belt during the exercise. If you continuously hold down a key, the incline display will gradually change (0.5% at a time). Release the key when you have selected your desired exercise incline. The incline of the treadmill will slowly change. On the display, the desired incline will flash until it has been attained. These keys also allow you to select the parameters prior to each exercise and act as scrolling keys in various menus.

INCREASE/DECREASE SPEED KEYS: Pressing these keys allows you to modify the speed of the walking belt during the exercise. If you continuously hold down a key, the speed display will gradually change (0.1 km/h or 0.1 mph at a time). Release the key when you have selected your desired exercise speed. The treadmill belt will slowly change to reach the speed you want. On the display, the desired speed will flash until it has been attained. These keys also allow you to select the programs and parameters prior to each exercise and act as scrolling keys in various menus.

iTEK KEY: This key has different functions depending on the operational stage of the equipment. When at the HOME SCREEN, press the iTEK key once to access the SETTINGS MENU. Press and hold the iTEK key for 3 seconds to access the DIAGNOSTICS MENU. When in a general menu, pressing the iTEK key acts as a Home Key and cancels all data and returns to the HOME SCREEN. During a workout, press the iTEK key to scroll through various equipment performance statistics.

JUSTGO (ENTER) KEY: This key has different functions depending on the operational stage of the equipment. When at the HOME SCREEN, press the green JUSTGO key to start a JustGo workout without inputting any parameters. Once the 3, 2, 1 workout countdown has begun, press the JUSTGO key to skip the countdown and begin the program. When using the menu system, press the JUSTGO (ENTER) key to select a menu and save data. During a workout, press the JUSTGO key to toggle the profile being display between speed & incline. 

MAIN KEYPAD: The Main Keypad is a group of the most used operational keys. The keys on the Main Keypad are made of silicone, as it is a more durable material able to withstand heavy use.

PRESET SPEED KEYS - A & B: These keys are similar to the Quick Speed Keys in that they allow you to quickly change the walking belt speed. However, as opposed to the Quick Speed Keys, whose values cannot be changed, the Preset Speed Keys are customizable, allowing you to store any speed value (e.g. 3.6) and changing it anytime you like. This is especially interesting for users who wish to alternate between two preset speeds (such as in Manual Interval training) and eliminates the annoyance of having to hold down or repeatedly press the Increase/Decrease Speed buttons mid-exercise when trying to reach a target speed. To store a speed value to a Preset Speed Key, simply run the treadmill at the desired speed and then press and hold down the Preset Speed Keys for 1 second until you hear a beep. If a User ID is selected while completing this process, the value will be saved to that User ID to use the next time they log in. If there is no User ID selected, the values will be cleared from the memory after the workout ends.

PROFILE DISPLAY: During a workout, you can change the profile being displayed from a speed graphic profile (default) to an incline graphic profile by pressing the JUSTGO key. To have the speed and incline profiles alternate continuously, press and hold the JUSTGO key for 3 seconds when the workout parameters are scrolling in the alphanumeric screen (not when iTek stats are scrolling). To return to speed or incline mode, press the JUSTGO key one more time.

PROGRAM CATEGORY KEYS: These 3 keys allow you to quickly access the program category of your choice. From left to right the 1st button leads you to a series of Basic Programs; the 2nd leads you to the Cardio Programs (Programs that require a heart rate chest strap) and the 3rd key on the right leads you to Advanced Programs which include the Memory and Custom Programs. Once a program category key is pressed you will see the first program in that program category’s list and to scroll though the list you may press the same category key again or the INCREASE/DECREASE SPEED or INCLINE keys.

QUICK INCLINE KEYS: These keys allow you to quickly modify the incline of the platform during an exercise to a preset value without having to use the INCREASE/DECREASE INCLINE keys.

QUICK SPEED KEYS: These keys allow you to quickly modify the speed of the walking belt during an exercise without having to use the INCREASE/DECREASE SPEED keys. Once a quick speed button has been pressed the ENTER key must be pressed to confirm the selection.

READING RACK & DEVICE HOLDER: Designed to safely hold most magazines, small books and devices such as mobile phones, music players and tablets.

SAFETY KEY: The safety key must be inserted into the appropriate slot in the console for the treadmill to be functional. For security purposes, make sure to attach the safety key clip to your clothes prior to starting an exercise.

STATS KEY: Each User ID saves cumulative statistics to their personal data file. The STATS key allows the current User ID to view their total cumulative statistics from the HOME SCREEN. If no User ID has been selected the key will be inactive.

STOP (PAUSE) KEY: This key has different functions depending on the operational stage of the equipment. When using the menu system, press the STOP key to go back in the menu system or cancel a function. During a workout, press the red STOP key to bring the walking belt to a stop and place the program into a pause mode. Press the STOP key again during the PAUSE mode to end the current program and the treadmill will be reset.

USB PORT: The USB Port can be used for software updates and charging of compatible devices.

USER ID KEY: This key accesses the User ID menu from the HOME SCREEN. In the User ID menu you may select, create, edit or delete a User ID. You may scroll through the sub-menus by continually pressing the USER ID key or by pressing the USER ID key once and then by pressing one of the INCREASE/DECREASE SPEED keys followed by the ENTER key on your desired choice.

WORKOUT PARAMETERS: Workout parameters are displayed on the L.C.D. in designated areas surrounding the profile or in the alphanumeric screen. Some windows automatically toggle the parameters being displayed every few seconds.
