Has anyone used a small floor peddle cycle. Been looking at them and seem ok, are they useful? xx

    Had knee number two at 11 am this morning.  Invested in a pedal machine with knee number one last June and found it invaluable.  Paid about £25 from Amazon.

    Go for it!

    Hi

    i have one at home and one in the office! Invaluable when you feel stiff or achy.

    People pop in my office for a go on it too. Lol

    Well worth the outlay and can use it for your arms too!

    Hi Sue - I am now 6 weeks post op and purchased a set of "static pedals" from our local disability shop for £30 when I was 2 weeks post op. I first used one when I went to group physio sessions post op and the physio recommended if I could afford to buy one.  I love it (and so does the rest of the family). You can use it sitting in different styles of chairs - ie, perch stool, dining chair, recliner, sitting on the sofa; you can increase/decrease effort, have it closer/further away and it's good if your balance for sitting on an exercise bike isn't so great. I also use it for my arms (helps the bingo wings) by putting it on the dining table and using my hands to pedal. All in all a good purchase I think.
