I ordered this bike for my elderly next door neighbor. She had been feeling weaker and needed to use her walker to get about in her home. She had complained about having no energy to exercise, and was worried she would be bedridden, or confined to a wheelchair. I thought that having a motorized exercise mini-bike would assist her in at least keeping her muscles from experiencing atrophy. Well, two weeks later, she reports feeling more energy, and she believes that it was the exercise that has helped her. When I visited with her last, she said that soon she would be "racing" around the house without any worries! The remote control feature is of great assistance to her, as well as the variable speeds. This is a good product. Keep it on a carpeted surface, so that it doesn't "scoot" around.
