The ten most harmful health gadgets

Some funny health gadgets out there. Some of my favorites -

The Entertainer:

The Entertrainer ($139.99) is a wireless heart rate device that is activated by your TV’s remote control. Mount it on a treadmill, bike, or any other exercise equipment. Choose your level of work-out intensity, and then power on your TV. If you’re not exercising hard enough, the volume on your TV will go down; if you don’t get your routine back on track, the TV will turn off!

The Chair Pad fart absorber:

When you gotta pass gas, you gotta pass gas. No one likes to hold it in, especially while at the office! Besides, the average person will produce about half a liter of fart gas per day. That’s why Flat-D Innovations, maker of flatulence odor control products, designed the Chair Pad ($25.95). It uses activated charcoal technology to absorb the odor of gas while you’re sitting.

The Treadmill Bike:

I think I’d rather walk than catch a ride on Bicycle Forest’s Treadmill Bike ($2,500 Canadian): the future of urban transportation. The company wanted to design a fitness product that allows you to be outside enjoying the nice weather, instead of cooped up in a gym. To ride the Treadmill Bike, just hop on and start walking or running across the moving belt.

    Charcoal absorbing farts, now that may be useful in many offices. Luckily not in mine.
