Forced exercise using a treadmill in rodents is a useful tool with a great value in the study of functional capacity and is a validated standard model for investigations in the field of human metabolism.

Basically, a subject is forced to walk/run on a treadmill (adjustable speed and inclination) during specific periods of time. This test allows the study of various physiological and behavioral functions such as long and short-term effort during exercise, locomotion, metabolic exchanges, cardiac function, motor coordination and fatigue.
