  1. Introduced in the late 1st century in Ancient Rome as a Roman treadmill crane, the treadmill was initially used to lift or transport heavy objects.
  2. In the 19th century, farmers used a treadmill based mechanism to better utilize the pulling power of a horse(coining the term horsepower).
  3. Smaller versions of the horse treadmills were used by dogs, sheep and goats for churning butter, grinding stones, fanning mills and also for separation of creams.
  4. The Victorian Era saw prison treadmills where prisoners used to work the wheel to grind corn or pump water.
