The Power Assisted Pedaler. Because, like, exercise is such a drag, y’know? Actually it looks laudably useful if you’re recuperating from a serious leg injury and don’t want to overdo your physio, but what’s the betting the main buyers are healthy but indolent power gym wannabes? $149.95.
This exercise pedaler provides a power-assisted leg workout for those with limited mobility to help improve muscular strength and coordination. Just a 15-minute workout helps improve muscle strength and range of motion and can be performed while doing desk work or watching TV. The device runs smoothly using a whisper-quiet 18-watt motor that coaxes your legs to cycle without forceful, jerky movement. Pedaling speed begins at a calm 45 rpm, and the included remote allows you to increase your speed incrementally up to a robust 65 rpm.
