Power Assisted Pedaler – out with the puffing, in with the ahhh…

Powerassistedpedaler

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.

  • This is just a Golds Gym mini bike, they have been arround for years!

  • Who are YOU to judge??? This a life-saver for people who can't afford a gym, who don't have the means or ability to buy expensive gym equipment for their apartment, or who have something wrong with their joints and need to do SOMETHING for exercise. This can be used manually, not just by plugging it in. You DO burn up calories and get a workout for your legs. You put it on a tabletop and canwork out your arms. Idiot, why don't you shut up and stop judging people. What an jerk. Your post might have prevented people who NEED this from buying it and getting the help they need.
