    I'm not an engineer, either, but I do own an Icon, and use one every day. The suspension is easily setup so that it doesn't compress under the force of a normal push stroke, yet, does compress when it encounters a sudden high pressure spike, like a bump. There are adjustments to the compression threshold, rebound rate, and preload which allow a wide range of operating parameters. It's far from just a simple "moving part". It does not have to move unless it hits a bump, if you don't want it to.

    thanks guys. I'm going to definitely look into the Icon. I'm going to ask my therapist if I can sample one, I'm hoping they will be at the Los Angeles abilities expo in a few weeks.

    Mike,

    The Icon is amazing, almost infinitely adjustable, and the customer service is the best I have seen. If Jeff Adams is at the Expo, take some time to talk to him and try out the Icon.

    There are different directions and types of force and movement. You can have no affect on forward movement, but have an up and down (shock) movement when required.
