International Space Station Treadmill


Isolate the harmful vibrations transmitted through the treadmill to the international space station itself


We developed a vibration isolation system to keep impact forces generated when running on a treadmill from shaking the entire space station. NASA’s treadmill design team partnered with our engineers to produce a unique Sorbothane® component that successfully works to attenuate the impact shock of running on the treadmill while isolating the treadmill’s vibration from affecting the space station itself.
