Not such a good idea when it is put on flooring as it slips. I bought it for my husband who has mob ility problems due to illness. I put it on a mat but it still slipped.

I bought this pedal exerciser because i had it on good authority that when i got my new knee this would be the way to exercise it. Thank goodness i listened, it really does help. I would recommend this exerciser to anyone having a new knee.
The product is a little light and plasticky (if that’s a word) and only time will tell how robust it is, i purchased this for my father to excercise his legs after a stroke. It is comfortable for him to use and the resistance can be adjusted as his movement improves. It tends to slip around the floor but once placed on a non slip bath mat it was fine. Value wise you cannot complain, and the delivery was excellent. I would recommend this seller 100 percent.
Reviews from purchasers :
- You have to find the right chair to use this
- armchair pedal cycle
- good for physio, not for exercise
It moves when you are cycling whether on wood floors or carpet. We solved this problem by fixing to a peice of wood and sticking a non slip backing on it.
Bought for dad to help him exercise in his chair, could use hands of feet. But sadly was a bit flimsy-good enough considering the price. I got this one just because it’s hard to get mature people set in their ways to try new ideas, and this was a case in point, was a good idea, but he wasn’t sold on it.So no waste of lots of money.
