CPSC Warns Consumers: Stop Using Certain Concept 'N' Motion Leg Toner Exercisers

WASHINGTON, DC - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is warning consumers to stop using Concept 'N' Motion Leg Toner Exercise Machines that have not been retrofitted with protective boots around the base of the machine's pedals. Without boots, these machines may present a risk of crushing the user's foot.

These machines are cabinet-style electrically operated exercisers that were sold to commercial health clubs for approximately $300.00 each. The user lies on the machine's padded bed with legs elevated and feet buckled loosely into foot pedals. The Commission investigated one case based on a Freedom of Information Request in which a 28-year-old woman suffered a crushing injury to the back of her foot when her foot fell off the machine's pedal during use and became entrapped in moving gears. The Commission believes that on approximately the first 30 of these Leg Toners manufactured in 1986, an unguarded opening around the base of the foot pedal allows access to moving parts inside the cabinet. Although the manufacturer, which is no longer in business, attempted to retrofit these machines with a protective boot around the base of the pedals, a Commission investigation found that not all of the 30 affected units were retrofitted.

Owners of these exercise machines should stop using them if they are not equipped with the protective boot.

The CPSC is announcing this warning as a part of its mission to protect the public from unreasonable risks associated with consumer products. The CPSC is the Federal agency responsible for consumer product safety.
