    Dec 10 2012: Having your legs moved for you isn't exercise. Exercise is the force you apply TO the machine and not the force the machine can apply to you.
    Pushing a cart up a hill = exercise
    Riding the cart down the hill = not exercise

    I can see what you're going for, but unless you alter your focus to some kind of *workable* impulse machine, theres not too much you can do, atleast whilst you're asleep.
