    i personally would go for the air walker cause it doesnt really affect your knees...or mine doesnt anyhow...but im sure someone will come along who is in the know over these sort of things..
    you can pick them up really cheap on ebay if you can find one local and can pick it up..(i did)

    Air walker. I have both and as I have HMS which affects my knees quite badly I was advised to use the air walked as it doesn't impact on the knees at all
