Good Ideas Pedal Armchair Exerciser : pedal armchair exerciser

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.

This is a great product for those who are not quite as mobile. This is a great product for those who are not quite as mobile and find it difficult to do a great deal of exercise. You can sit down and gently cycle keeps the blood flowing and increases your heart rate.

You have to find the right chair to use this. You have to find the right chair to use this and have to be quite active in the first instance. Here are the specifications for the Good Ideas Pedal Armchair Exerciser:

  • 2 years warranty
  • Exercise while reading or watching TV
  • Measures: 11 1/2″” x 12″” x 11
  • Great for improving circulation and fitness in the legs. Ideal for the elderly or convalescents

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.

    A wonderful addition to my physio regime. I am wheelchair bound, and this item was brought for physio. I am very pleased, it is adjustable which means it is suitable for a number of strengths. It is also very lightweight which is a huge advantage for me, and it is highly portable. It has been invaluble for me, i am actually able to use lying down when bed bound. It was also very simple to assemble, so much so that i actually managed to assemble it myself (no tools required).

      1. Pedal armchair exerciserdisappointing. . Having limited mobility, l thought this would be beneficial. The item arrived packed flat for home construction which l was unable to do, fortunately my partner was around and put it together for me. On trying to use it l found it so light that it travelled considerably. I then tried it on a wood floor wedged against a heavy rug, it still travelled. Most frustrating as l found it very difficult to get my feet into the pedal supports, so constantly having to do this was very frustrating. The pedal apparatus is very light, and tips as well, l think the only way to overcome this is to have it mounted onto a sturdy base. I am lucky having my partner to help, but a single person with restricted mobility would really struggle.
