Anyone looking fora recumbant stepper...

It's very exciting to me because I couldn't use my legs in a cycling type way - ...

I posted this on another thread but got no response. Here's hoping!

I'm a farmer and sometimes I think the farm would fall apart without duct tape!
I have a different problem which is a big one..

Secondhand Bioness

In Europe the Bioness is just getting more attention. However the pricing is quite a bite higher (€8100). Therefor I am looking into the possibility of buying one in the US and prefably a used one/second hand.

Is anyone willing to help me in buying one and shipping it to Europe?

This device, which is said to be compareable to WALKAID, might be specially interesting for german MS patients. I heard that the device would cost about 1.000 EUR.

So, what if you have 2 weak legs and a very weak core...will these aids help? Does anyone have a machine that sends pulses to the core. I've wondered about the contraptions you can buy at the sport store here, where you place pads on your stomach to make it firmer...I wonder if it's safe to use on my husband.
