Several healthcare professionals including specialists in cardiology and vascular surgery, GPs and physiotherapists have seen for themselves the benefits of recommending the Happylegs Seated Walking Machine to their patients:
In late 2014 the Dr Javier Tisaire Sanchez of the Fundsalud Health Foundation in Spain started a clinical study to assess the effects of Happylegs on a range of patients with cardiovascular or vascular pathology. The range of positive results exceeded his expectations.
"... we can conclude that regular use of passive systems for mobilising the lower extremities, and in particular the Happylegssystem, generate an improvement in different variables in the people using them, with no side-effects of any kind or risk in use ..."
Many other medical professionals have also been impressed by the simplicity and effectiveness of Happylegs.
"... I have been recommending Happylegs to my patients for years, especially those over 65"

“…Keeping our limbs moving, particularly the legs, is essential to good health. This is important to people of all ages but even more so the disabled and elderly who tend to spend a significant amount of time sitting in a chair and inactive.
The muscles, ligaments and joints need regular movement and exercise to ensure we keep in good shape. The leg muscles also aid blood circulation and prolonged lack of exercise can impair venous blood flow.
The Happylegs Walking Machine is an excellent device to easily help disabled people and those who have difficulty walking keep their legs moving…”

“…HappyLegs is a passive exercise machine that is easy to use. With three speed settings, you can start ‘walking’ slowly and gradually increase the pace as you gain in fitness. And while many people with the best of intentions give up exercise due to boredom, there’s little risk of that when you are sitting back reading a book, listening to the radio or watching TV as you take your daily stroll!…”

“…The leg muscles, in particular the calf muscles, are anatomically designed to pump venous blood up the leg when we walk. The heart cannot do this on its own. People who have difficulty walking or who cannot walk at all and thus do not exercise their legs very much can suffer from poor blood circulation or Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI). Typical symptoms of CVI can be swollen ankles, tight calves, tired, restless or achy legs. Some people may feel pain while walking or shortly after stopping.
CVI can also be associated with varicose veins, rashes, redness and sores. In severe cases, CVI and the leg swelling can cause ulcers to form on the lower parts of the leg.
This is one of the reasons why it is important to take regular exercise such as a twenty minute walk every day. However, for the disabled and frail elderly it is not always possible to take a 20 minute walk or exercise the legs regularly.
The Happylegs is a very simple and effective device that can move and exercise the legs of people who, for whatever reason, find walking difficult or not even possible and could help improve blood circulation and reduce the risk of CVI…”
