Which one of the two exercise machines are better? http://www.bowflex.com/mMachineDetailVersa.asp?productID=50000&productName=Versatrainer&linkID=3

I've got both pieces of equipment in my home gym. The Bowflex (I had it before my injury) is good if, imo, you have assistance in grabbing the straps and positioning yourself for the various exercises. For lower level paras this would work better.
As a quad - The Uppertone (www.gpk.com (http://www.gpk.com)) is my choice. Great upper body exercises without any assistance (complete independence). Everything about it is adjustable, more versatile for quads. If I was a para I'm not sure that I would get as much out of it.
Good luck with whichever you choose!
