The Surge of Chi Exerciser is a chi exercise machine based on an innovative design with the latest technology and features. This user-friendly passive exerciser has many improvements over early "chi machines" - to give stimulating exercise in a way that suits all ages, fitness levels and health conditions. You can read more about the history of chi exercise machines generally at this information-rich independent website The Chi Machine Story.
A key feature which distinguishes the Surge of Chi from other chi exercise machines is its fully programmed variable speed control: the speed can be dialled very precisely, in increments of 1 RPM, over a very wide range from 80 to 160 RPM. The very gentle starting speed means that even those with great sensitivity or with seriously compromised health conditions can enjoy the benefits. The body's natural response to the Chi Exerciser's swinging motion acts to stimulate the nervous system, and this helps to boost the body's own healing and energy systems.
Three pre-programmed Auto-Modes allow the user to enjoy variable speeds during a 15-minute session, without needing to use any manual controls. Shorter sessions can be chosen with the Timer Button, and the LCD screen on the hand control module allows you to see what speed you are doing, how many minutes you have left during your session, and to check all the other functions, at any time.
The heavy duty DC motor is also a big improvement on early "Chi Machines" - with a low-friction engineering design that offers a longer life (Tests based on 3000+ hours constant use under 20kg load), smoother ride, less noise and greater temperature resistance than the earlier designs, as well as the capacity for the precise programming with fully adjustable speed controls.
Other features include: Padded ankle rests; Sturdy integral carry handle; Hand-operated controller on 1.6 metre lead allowing easy control while the user is lying down; Power lead – 3 metres in length; Exchangeable 2-pin/3-pin plugs that allow for use in UK or Europe.
