The Exerciser 3

Originator....... Tom Jeary


THE PROBLEM: Many people, confined to a wheelchair, find it very difficult to get cardiovascular exercise, especially in winter. Beyond the obvious benefits anyone derives from a heart-lung workout on a regular basis, it is particularly important to the wheelchair-bound in providing increased bloodflow to prevent pressure sores.    .

THE SOLUTION: This device can be made from bicycle or stationary exercise bike parts. The pedal mechanism is attached to an ordinary carpenters clamp so that it can be attached to a table top.  ( see also Excerciser 1 and Exerciser 2 )
