Power Assist Pedaler

The Power Assist Pedaler from Hammacher Schlemmer helps users with mobility issues prevent muscle atrophy by providing gentle, adjustable assistance in the form of this compact stationary exerciser.

Power Assist PedalerWhen time or weather conditions prevent going outside for a walk, leg muscles stay active and toned with just 15 minutes a day on this quiet, space-saving device. From your most comfortable chair, while watching television or reading a book, adjust the speed from the 18-watt motor from 25 to 65 rpm as the Power Assist Pedaler eases you through a full range of motion, improving muscular strength and coordination.

A handy remote control makes it easy to increase or decrease speed, while the unit’s Liquid Crystal Display shows distance, time, calories burned, and rpm. And the Power Assist Pedaler isn’t just for lower body fitness. Mr. Jones in Winnipeg  says the Power Assist is:

“Also GREAT for upper body workout. I put it on a table and use it for my arms.”

Don’t allow loss of circulation or muscle tone affect you, just because you haven’t the mobility to go for walks or get to an exercise facility. Use The Power Assist Pedaler from the comfort of your living room, and keep those legs moving!

Horizontal Inversion Pain Reliever

The horizontal inversion pain reliever from Hammacher Schlemmer provides a new delivery for an old remedy. Sufferers of joint and back pain have long turned to inversion therapy to seek relief. The motion of stretching creates space between the vertebrae by applying gentle traction to the spine. However, this technique isn’t appropriate for all pain sufferers.

Horizontal Inversion Pain RelieverThe Mayo clinic advises those seeking pain relief from inversion therapy, yet who have blood pressure, heart disease or glaucoma, to avoid this exercise due to the rush of blood to the head it creates. With the horizontal inversion pain reliever, users lie down on the machine, and never hang upside down. By pressing the feet against the lever at the lower end, a smooth, easy stretch is achieved with the amount of force the user deems comfortable. This motion not only relieves pressure on the spine, but also decompresses the joints in the shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles.

The horizontal pain reliever is made of sturdy 14-gauge steel, and is sized to accommodate users ranging from 4’11” to 6’6″ in height. It’s low profile to the ground makes it much easier to get in and out of than vertical devices. Plus, it is portable enough to stow away easily in a closet when not in use.

If you suffer from back pain, but feel hanging inverted could be harmful to you, try The Horizontal Inversion Pain Reliever from Hammacher Schlemmer.
