Users comments
The user is extremely satisfied with the foot rest. If she does not use it and has her feet on the foot bar, her feet wind up between the tubes of the foot bar. The foot rest also prevents ulcers on her feet. The pressure is evenly distributed across the foot. This is especially important when she does not wear shoes.
