A heart rate chest strap is also included for hands free pulse monitoring and heart rate interactive programs.Oversize foot pedals with durable foam cushioning for a comfortable workout. These unique foot pedals were designed in collaboration with a leading physical therapist and sports enthusiast. Sole engineers have designed a 2 degree inward slope to the foot pedals which reduce ankle and knee stress common in other elliptical machines.This collaboration also produced a revolutionary foot pedal angle adjustment not found on any other elliptical at any price. Not everyone walks the same way; for this reason we have made the E95 pedals adjustable to fit the way you walk. This adjustment is made using a dial called a "worm drive", which allows you to dial in to exactly where you want the pedal to be angled. This feature also reduces numb toe effects and sore Achilles tendons, common occurrences on other elliptical machines.The four rear wheels which ride on heavy duty rails provide a smoother more stable feel and reduce side to side foot pedal motion. A feature found only on more expensive models.
