Wonderful for arthritic knees
I was dfiagnosed with Osteoarthritis of both knees 7 months ago. The onset was sudden, leaving me barrly able to walk, climb stairs, get out of a chair. I bought some books with exercises described, and went to physical therapy for three months. PT showed me tje same exercises that I'd started doing from the book. Plus a little bit with equipment, starting with a reclining cycle for ten minutes at the beginning of each session, to loosen the joints. After my PT course was finished, I could do 90% of the exercises at home. I saw this pedal exercisrr, and thought it might help me to both continue building quadriceps as well as loosening the joints. Ordered it, it arrived quickly.
I love that it is fully assembled, and very sturdy. No bolts to loosen while in use. Very quiet operation. I use it sitting in my recliner (not reclined) while watching TV. I've had it almost three weeks, and my improvement has sped up as a result! I use it for 20-40 minutes at a time, two to three times a day. Try to do motning, midday, and evening. After a week it started to squeak a little. The foam that covers the pedal arms was a bit too long, and rubbed against both the pedals and the center gear. That was easily fixed...sharp case cutter used to trim about 1/3 inch off each end of both foam covers. Back to perfect silence.
I have an ottoman that I place on the carpet in front of the pedaler, so it stays in place. The unit is relatively small and lightweight, and when not in use I set it on the pedals of !y elliptical, so it's out of thee way.
I am able to walk much more easily now, with much less knee pain. I credit the pedaler for being an integral part of the exercise routine for my knees.

Way better than Drive Medical Pedal Exerciser
This is so much better than the Drive Medical exercise peddler. The drive exerciser might be cheaper but if it does not work, what's the point of buying it even if it is $10. The Vaunn exerciser has a sleeve around the pedal to prevent overheating and most importantly, it is stable. The drive exerciser keep shaking while I pedal. How am I supposed to use it if it keeps moving?

I like it.
The Vaunn Medical Pedal exerciser is a very well built exercise pedaler. It is silver chrome plated, easy to keep and store and does not squeak when I cycle it. I like it.

Great exercise bike for arms and legs.
Exactly as advertised. It came intact, operates with arms or feet, although I have to adjust chair height to be able to use it for my legs. However, I'm very pleased. Now that winter is here, I'll still be able to build up strength in my arms and legs.

Good idea, but It's difficult to place your feet ...
Good idea, but It's difficult to place your feet on the pedals and it will slide on the floor.

This product works great for me
This product works great for me. I needed something to help with motion for knee surgery recovery. It is a bit flimsy, so someone stronger than myself may not enjoy it as much. But great for motion.
