“I have had the Theracycle machine for several months and I am extremely happy with it. Since I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, and have had this condition for a long time, I started out pretty slow. At first my knees were really tight, but now I can ride the Theracycle for seven minutes per session at five miles per hour. My leg muscles are a lot stronger. I can tell because it is a lot easier to get up from my wheel chair and to get to my walker. The Theracycle definitely is helping with my circulation - I have a lot of edema and I can see the difference in my legs which are a lot less swollen. I know it sounds funny, but the Theracycle really helps with fatigue. I can be very tired and then get on the Theracycle. Even after seven minutes my body gets a surge of energy.”
