    Looks interesting Fuentejps, thanks for the link.

    At $795, that is indeed reasonable. I also like the fact that they actually have a person with spinal cord injury demonstrating the device in the movie. Wise.

    i figure ive been using a stationary handcycle for 40 min everyday for 10 years incorporating that w/ my upper body workout. my shoulders get achy sometimes, so at 31, ill mix it up a bit w/ the vita glide. it is cheap comparitivly.

    Wow, looks like a good Machine for $795, I would think it would work different muscles than a stationary handcycle too. I love innovation. Good post Fuen.

    I would think this might be a good piece of equipment for commercial health clubs to think about getting, it would be good for a/b's too when used with a seat adaptor.

    Yeah - Looks really great. I sure could use anything that will help prevent shoulder injuries while strengthening. I wonder if they have quad grips or handles. I would need them as I couldn't grip the handle well enough without some kind of assistive device.

    fuentejps - That quad seemed to have fairly tight fingers. My fingers couldn't stay curled around a handle like that. Pulling back would straighten them out.

    Maybe I would just tape my hands to the handles.

    Has anyone tested the vitaglide?

    I think it looks uncomfortable. I tried to mimic the motion and it feels a bit awkward to me.

    Just asking because it is well priced and seems offer a good workout.
