How To Use A Walkingpad?

There are high accurate sensors on the bed of the walking pad which allows you to control the speed of the machine. To accelerate the speed, step on the front portion of the device. Similarly, to reduce the speed of the machine, all you need to do is to step on the tail of the device.
