Wosrt Gaiam purchase ever
PostedApril 23, 2011
I am a health care practitioner and bodyworker. I have used "Chi machines" before and was excited to purchase one through a company I have grown to trust. The so called "healthy circulation machine" arrived packaged as "the healthy swinger" with an image of a scantily clad woman in lipstick that looked more like a blow-up doll than an image of fitness. The image and title was truly insulting marketing. I also felt in this case, Gaiam's advertised promotion of the product was misleading an non-representative of what's shown on their website.
The product itself felt cheaply made. The plastic foot rest was rigid and uncomfortable. The so-called swivel disk was also a piece of cheap, hard plastic uncomfortable to lie on. The casing felt cheap as well and, at that point, I lost all confidence that the motor would be any better.
I have purchased about a dozen items from Gaiam and have been very pleased with the company. I'm often refering friends to their products, but "the Healthy Swinger", as it is called, is a complete bomb.

could this be dangerous for someone with a pacemaker

My mother is 95 and has circulation problems. I'm wondering if this would be too hard on her even at he lowest speed and time limit?

The foot rest is hard and uncomfortable. There are much better products such as this out there. Don't recommend.
