The machine was purchased for my husband who is undergoing Chemo. He gets so tired and week from treatments he will loose his balance. After using this machine he is able to maintain his balance and has more energy. The machine does all the work so he is not burning calories but his muscles are working out! The mat that comes with this machine holds it in place and does not slip as others did. I would recommend this to all who have any muscle problems or experience weakness in their legs or arms. I also have used this machine for his arms and that too worked wonders on his arms, shoulders and strengthened his breathing. You can NOT go wrong purchasing this machine!
Had to buy a little 240v transformer, but I knew this.
Good machine, can exercise my replacement knee and knee awaiting replacement without my weight on them.
Exercise has helped the circulation in my legs which was a big problem with water retention.
Much better than going to the gym as no problem of getting ready is involved and 2 short sessions a day are better for the circulation than one big session once a week.

although we haven't used this a lot as yet because the holidays seemed to get in the way of the exercise we do believe that it is perfect for anyone that has trouble using a pedal bike for exercise. With the remote control and speed control at your fingertips even someone with infirmities can use it. It will strengthen the legs quickly.

Very impressed with the quality of the machine. Durable construction with metal encasement; can be moved with attached hand grip but individual must be able to lift ten pounds. Dual application for upper body and arm rotation as well as leg rotation workouts, with simple adjustments to pedals. Can be placed on floor for lower leg activity, and also on counter/table surface for arm acitivity. Adjustable tension for increased resistance; adjustable speed for passive workout routine. Ideal home exercise equipment for individuals unable to do active movement, such as those with limited range of motion, stroke impairment, incapacity for active ambulation, lower limb DVT (deep vein thrombosis), etc. Individual should be assisted with this equipment during its use.
My right leg doesn't work well because of polio so I'm having a time getting used to this exerciser. That is the fault of the person and not the machine. It is taking some time but I think it will work out well.

As long as someone is attendance while it is being used. There are foot straps to stabilize the foot, but the slightest shift of the foot could harm the interior ankle bone if it grazes the center support.bethanly on Jan 11, 2014
So this will work with the 240v power we have in Australia wth out a transformer? Is the plug suitable for Australia or will I need an adaptor? Thanks for considering.thommo1954 on Apr 22, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
