    That looks quite good Lynne;

    I'm tempted because it's got a good guarantee and free delivery. I would like a bigger crank so that my legs would bend more but you have to pay loads of money for them.

    Love Terry

      It looks good. Only problem is that I would probably lose my balance if I sat on the edge of the bed while using it, like the man in the video!

      Are you going to be able to use it while you are sitting in comfort in your new riser/recliner, Lynne?

        I think so Kayleigh. I wouldn't sit on a bed to use it, or like you I'd go splat (onto the floor). Lynne

          Yea I agree Terry, but cardo exercise is more important. Also if legs cannot move a lot then it'd be better. Lynne

            I've ordered one, Lynne;

            I'll probably have to sit in my wheelchair or maybe have a small platform made.

            I have asked if I can have a VAT exemption, I doubt it but I'll let you know if we can.

              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.
