No, I haven't tried them, so I'd be speaking a little out of turn to make specific suggestions about them. I must say that it looks like it could be fun, but I have to confess a scepticism towards the health benefits, because much of the work is done "passively". So one benefit is that you reduce the impact (the report it as an 80% reduction), but you also affect the total muscular work and that means the benefit is not as great as it might be for running. On the whole I think it's probably a little gimmicky...as for research, none really to speak of that compares it to normal exercise and so one can't even say with certainty how it compares. I guess you'd have to try it, but I wouldn't be replacing normal/classic exercise with them any time soon.
