What is a hockey treadmill?

A hockey treadmill, also known as a skating treadmill, synthetic ice treadmill or skatemill, is a specialized training device designed for hockey players to improve their skating skills and overall performance. Unlike traditional treadmills, this one is equipped with a synthetic surface that mimics the friction and feel of ice. Here's how it works and its key features.

Hockey treadmill key features

  • Synthetic Surface: The surface is made of a synthetic material (synthetic ice) that provides a similar gliding sensation to ice. It allows players to wear their regular hockey skates while training.
  • Endless Loop: The treadmill has a continuous moving belt or surface that creates a skating environment where the player can skate in place without actually moving forward. This allows players to always remain in front of the coach.
  • Fast skills improvement: Our HST equipped with modern software based on artificial intelligence. Various diagnostic systems help coaches find a player’s weaknesses and work quickly and efficiently to eliminate them, constantly monitoring progress.
  • Adjustable Speed: Skatemills typically have adjustable speed settings, allowing players to skate at different paces, from slow and controlled movements for skill development to high-speed sprints for conditioning.
  • Resistance Options: With simulating the effort required for different skating maneuvers and helping players build leg strength.
  • Monitoring and Feedback: Our HST (due to configuration) equipped with sensors and cameras that track a player's movements and provide real-time feedback on their stride, balance, and technique. This data helps players and coaches identify areas for improvement.
  • Training Programs: It comes with Instructor app. – video training drills and exercises to target specific aspects of skating, such as acceleration, agility, balance, etc.
  • Safety Features: To ensure safety during training, our HST includes drop-down handles and emergency stop mechanisms, allowing players to stop the device instantly if needed.
  • Year-Round Training: Since hockey treadmills can be used indoors, they enable players to train regardless of weather conditions or ice availability, making them especially useful during the offseason.

Skatemills have become an essential tool for hockey players at all levels, from youth to professional, as they provide a controlled and focused environment for improving skating skills, endurance, and overall performance on the ice.
