We’ve had the Helix for about a year and I think it’s great.  It’s a unique machine – it exercises the hip abductors and adductors and in a nutshell I really like it.  It’s used a whole lot in our fitness center – there is always someone using it, and people really seem to enjoy it.

The Helix can be challenging for our therapy patients because of issues they might have with balance and co-ordination.  For example, with patients rehabbing from knee issues the Helix would be employed during the more advanced stage of the protocols – say, 6 months out after an ACL or something like that.

As far as the users’ experience goes, the Helix is a really popular machine and they use it.  The Helix seems to catch the eye of individuals who are more oriented and motivated to doing aerobic exercise – probably our more fit individuals.  On a scale of 10, I’d rate the Helix as a 9 or 10.
