The Pugmo Scooter is the world’s first pedal powered scooter. Part scooter, part stairmaster stepper, this human powered vehicle will get you moving, offering both a mode of transportation as well as a healthy fitness workout.
Having features similar to a stairmaster means that this gadget should be friendly on the knee joints. Dr. Batchelor, an Atlanta sports medicine physician evaluated the scooter and concluded that the Pumgo Scooter is not a weight bearing exercise, provides a cardiovascular workout and can be more entertaining then an indoor upright stationary bike or stair climber.
Similar to other scooters on the market, the Pugmo Scooter is lightweight and can be folded when not in use. If you happen to be in the New York area, you will have an opportunity to see the scooter at the New York International Toy Fair being held at the Javits Convention Center between February 15-18, 2009.
