Nice exerciser for the elderly
on August 8, 2016
I bought this product for my Grandmother who is just over 80 years old. She has put on a little weight over the years so it's harder for her to get around now. She needs to keep exercising but being on her feet means carrying around the extra weight which makes her tire quickly. This product does have adjustable resistance which is great. I didn't really test out the feature to much considering it wasn't going to be used for heavy resistance.
I had this shipped to my house so I could put it together and test it out before I handed it over to her. She keeps in her kitchen which is linoleum so she can sit on a kitchen chair and pedal away. She has some water retaining issues with her one ankle and this helping to keep the swelling down a bit. She says she sits down in the kitchen and uses this at least every other day.
The resistance is enough to give someone like her a workout without having it take a toll on the joints. She really seems to be enjoying working out.
I would recommend this to anyone who has an elder person or a person who just needs to get some motion workout in.
If you are looking to get a real workout then this is not the product for you. This product is not ment for heavy use and long cycling.
