  1. That is an amazing invention, I am a healthcare practitioner, I wish our company will also have an equipment something like that for our mentally challenge residence.

  2. I am retired applications engineer and am starting to have memory problems. The “Bike Around” is what I have been dreaming of for years. The problem is the cost of the exercise systems available now. I have a good computer I can link to a large screen TV. I have very good exercise bike. I just need the software and a small handlebar mounted steering device.
