Inmates in a small prison in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais are being offered the chance to reduce their jail terms in return for generating electricity by pedalling on exercise bicycles.
With this in mind, there is provided in accordance with the invention an electric passive pedal exerciser consisting of a lightweight frame having a handle mounted to it, a crank assembly including bearings and rotatable shaft with opposed arm and pedals similar to the crank assembly of that of a bicycle. The crank assembly has a gear firmly attached to the shaft which is driven by a gear attached to the shaft of an electric motor. The gear rotor is selected so that the crank assembly will turn with suffecient speed to provide exercise to the user but will not be so fast as to injure the user or so slow as to be ineffective. The electric motor speed is controlled by a slide rheostat allowing the user to vary the speed of the rotation of the pedals to provide the desired exercise.
