Colin Furze - how to control a motorised staircase treadmill with RS Pro

Engineering can help solve many problems, it can even help you shift a few of those extra pounds from overindulgence at Christmas time! 

Our favourite You-tuber Colin Furze has built a custom Treadmill for his staircase at home.  Using a conveyer belt wrapped around a bearing and roller system, Colin uses wheelchair motors and an RS Pro DC motor controller to drive the conveyor. A pretty impressive piece of engineering!

Subscribe to Colin’s YouTube channel to find out how it stacks up in this ultimate exercise machine, built in conjunction with UK fitness guru, Joe Wicks.
