Want to know how it works?

Claim: To get lean firm abs in weeks by sitting on your butt.

How it works: It stimulates the muscle only during the concentric or 'positive' contraction thereby keeping it active.

What its mainly used for: Physiotherapy. Becuase it stimulates the muscle to become active.

Summary The problem with the ab machines are that the people that use them have fat overtop of their abs, and without regular exercise you will not get rid of the fat overtop. Therefore, you just look bigger!

If you really want to use them, combine them with your regular exercise and a sound nutrition base and then you will meet in the middle (muscle and fat), giving you that ultimate six pack.
