    Have you looked at the vitaglide Pararich. Would give you a much better and more efficient workout than a Saratoga. Pat

    I read some of your posts about the vitaglide. I checked out a video from the manufacturer. It looks good.
    It looks boring, though. Maybe if I got an ipod "for company" I'd use it.
    I'm going nowhere quickly, in terms of exercise.
    I used to have a pretty excellent body.
    Now it's broken kinda bad.
    I HAVE to start working toward better health.
    I'm short on funds. But, if I want it bad enough I'm sure I could get a vitaglide.

    ColonusFan,
    Looking at the handcycles made my heart beat a little faster.
    I'd rather spend my money on a handcycle than on a vitaglide.
    Really, I'd like both.

    Many times more efficient and less money than a Saratoga. I have both the handcycle and Vitaglide. I agree the h/c probably is more fun. The cost of a h/c is much more than a V/G while the VG works areas that we SCI's have difficulty working and gives a great cardio workout.

    I'm T6/7 and had to use my hands to push up from a leaning over position. After using the V/G for as long as I have, I can do it without needing the hands to push up.

    It's also ideal for staying in shape when a person can't get out there and ride the h/c. Whatever you decide on Paraiah, I'm sure you'll go great guns on it.

    I read that the vg gives a anaerobic workout.
    You are saying it's good aerobically.
    I guess it's both.

    For me it is. I trust it is with the others also.
