    Hi Mary Lynn,

    We had a previous AML patient who was on the high school track team and our physical therapy team brought in an approved treadmill for him.

    Hello All:

    We have a teenager that will be getting a SCT in the next few days; parents are asking if they could purchase a foldable treadmill to keep in the room during his stay for exercise as he likes walking the best.  This was the one they want to order.  Just wondering if your units allow this and did anyone from your hospital have to approve? (i.e. safety or risk management)? Or maybe you purchased some like this for your unit? : Goplus 2 in 1 Folding Treadmill, 2.25HP Superfit Under Desk Electric Treadmill, Installation-Free with Blue Tooth Speaker, Remote Control, APP Control and LED Display, Walking Jogging for Home Office : Sports & Outdoors
