Most of us have a very busy lifestyle, and few really have the time to exercise properly, go to gym, etc. However, Hammacher Schlemmer might have a solution for us (alongside the many similar products available out there), in the form of the Power Assist Pedaler.
This exercise pedaler provides a power-assisted leg workout for those with limited mobility
to help improve muscular
strength and coordination. According to the vendor, just a 15-minute workout helps improve muscle strength and range of motion and can be performed while doing desk work or watching TV. Of course, this is most likely marketing, but there might be something to this, after all.
Furthermore, the vendor informs us that the device uses an 18-watt motor that coaxes the user's legs to cycle without forceful, jerky movement. Pedaling
speed begins at 45 rpm and the included remote allows the user to increase the speed incrementally up to a strong 65 rpm. Plus, the motor is very silent, so there's very little chance of disturbing anyone while using this device.
The Power Assist Pedaler also sports an easy-to-read LCD that displays distance, time, calories burned, and RPM, and uses a watch battery. One won't have to worry about damaging the Pedaler in any way, since it sports a strong ABS/resin/steel construction.
As far as placement options are concerned, would-be customers should take into account the fact that this thing requires an AC plug nearby and measures 14 x 16 x 13 inches, at an overall weight of 13 1/4 lbs.
Hammacher Schlemmer sells the Power Assist Pedaler for around 150 US dollars, which is not that bad a price, if we consider just how versatile and useful this thing is. However, given the fact that Hammacher Schlemmer is known for adding a little extra to the basic price of most of the products is displays, it's likely that you'll be able to find this thing for less from other sources.We are just a few, but there are many of you, Softpedia users, out there.
