    Terry, I used to sit in my wheelchair to use the pedal machine - it enabled me to use it in a good position, with good support and I didn't overstretch.

    Lynne, I think you'll enjoy your pedalling, don't forget to use the reverse mode too. Pedal safely!!

    Love Ellie.

    Hi;

    I'm afraid that it's gone back up to 79.99 but if you tell them you have Mnd they might take the VAT off of that price. Both Lynne and I did get the VAT back so you would stand a good chance.

    Mine has arrived and it seams very well made and easy to control. I thought that I would have trouble with it because my heals turn inwards and the stiffness of my legs and I do. It just switches off if the motors can't move for a couple of seconds. However I think that once they're moving it will be OK and hopefully my son can come up with something to keep my heals in line.

    Love Terry

    Hi TC,

    Until your MacGyver son comes up with a solution, I wonder if putting a firm cushion between your thighs/knees to hold your hips open would improve alingment of your heels?

    Happy pedalling.

    Love Ellie.
