    Can you identify this strange machine?


    It is about the size of a typewriter.

    You put your hands on it and hold onto its handles.

    Then you pedal it like a bike....except it is with your hands

    It appears to be meant for cardio as when I tried this, I was breathing quite heavily.

    What is it?

    I googled 'handbike' and those are the only tyeps of handbikes I saw. That (the link) was not what I saw at all.

    If it isnt called a handbike what is it?

    They got one of those at my gym which is handicapped accessible, it's kinda funny sometimes people who can do anything do that... all the people in the wheelchair need to do is look at them for about 5 seconds before they get the point and use something else
