At school I am currently designing an exercise machine that can be used by elderly members of the public who may not be able exercise, due to fear of falling or even if the user has trouble getting out of their chair unassisted. The machine will be able to be used while the user is sat in a chair so must be lightweight and easy to use. Currently I am researching the type of exercise the machine should help with and what areas of the body the machine should exercise.

I would be very grateful if you could give me some views on this product and if you have any constructive advice about the type of exercise or areas of the body it would be much appreciated.

(Sorry if this is in the wrong section of the forum, I couldn’t not find a section appropriate.)
