It all started when NASA began launching astronauts into space for missions lasting 3-6 months. Without the pull of Earth’s gravity, the muscles and bones of these daring explorers and scientists were in danger of atrophy, so NASA Biomechanics Researcher Dr. Robert Whalen invented the first air-pressure controlled treadmill.
