Treadmills are often used as a tool to assist with stress tests. These tests are often referred to as an exercise stress test. This process measures the strain on a person's cardiovascular system during varying degrees of physical activity. An alternative tool is a stationary bike. However, in both methods a person's heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing are monitored via electrodes connected to an electrocardiogram (ECG) machine. Additionally, a breathing tube is often used to monitor breathing.

Stress tests are recommended for a variety of reasons. Most of these tests help with making a diagnosis of a condition. Some of the most common conditions include: coronary artery disease, heart arrhythmia, and other heart disorders. Stress tests are also used to help plan the best timing for heart surgery.
