  • The virtual jump rope can be used similarly to a regular jump rope except the simulated jump rope does not require a jump rope to travel under the user's feet. The virtual jump rope provides basically the same level of exercise as a regular jump rope when these devices are used in a similar fashion. The exersion required to twirl one long regular jump rope, which is divided between the two handles, is basically equal to the exersion required to twirl the two separate units of the virtual jump rope.

  • In addition to performing the exercise capabilities of a regular jump rope, the virtual jump rope provides numerous additional movements and capabilities. Additional movements that can be performed with the invention's virtual jump rope include leg squats, lunges, high stepping, kicking movements such as to the side, front or back, use with an aerobic step device, use with walking, jogging, or running exercise, jumping to tip toes or flexing of legs without the user's feet leaving the ground. Also, whereas a regular jump rope allows only one basic arm movement, the virtual jump rope allows many different arm movements, including holding the arms at different positions such as far away from the body, different heights such as shoulder height, movements such as making large circles with the entire arm, and arm movements that can be out of synch with leg movements.

  • The embodiments of the invention are easy and fun to use by users of all ages and all fitness levels. It is simple enough for children to use. Moreover, it would be great for older users, who could get an aerobic workout without the dangers of a regular jump rope. With no rope traveling under their feet, there would not be the danger of falling from tripping on a jump rope. Also, older users do not need to jump off the ground, which provides additional safety and results in little or no stress on older users' knees and joints. So, this invention provides a safe and effective workout for older users. Since older users are a large and growing segment of the population, and one that has limited exercise options, the virtual jump rope's advantages here are very significant.
