This creation, seen below, is called the Joba Horseriding Exercise Machine. It is manufactured in Japan by Matsushita Electrical Works, based in Kadoma, Osaka, in conjunction with Nagoya University in Nagoya, Japan. It’s being called an “indoor fitness machine”.
It offers its user the ability to access a form of horseback-riding therapy, which allows the user to get the effect of physical exercises just by sitting on the machine without any exertion from the user.
The benefits are clear as it helps stimulate seldom used muscles in the dorsal and abdominal regions.
Um…I don’t think the woman in the picture is “exercising” in the common vernacular. Look at her face. She sure looks like she’s benefitting those seldom used muscles in the dorsal and abdominal area. Is that the face that you would make if you were riding a horse? Well, she’s riding something…hmm. Well.
