    Without question FES arm and leg bike. I've had a couple of them over 25 yrs. The FES is probably one of the most important things in therapy in my opinion. I ride the bike 3x a week and do the hand cycle 2x. It's great for the body.

    That's a tough one. I like what the FES leg and hand unit offers, but the little exposure I've had to biofeedback offered some positive results. I would like to try the biofeedback again, but with a therapist who is experienced who is more knowledgeable in how the system works than the therapists I worked with before.
