You can see a picture of this on page 305 of november 1999 Vogue or onwww.pilates-studio.com/performer.htm. It is simply excercising on a sliding platform against mild resistance. The position of the foot bar allows you to lower your heels as if you were standing with toes on a stair and allowed your heel to drop below stair level. Nothing magic, but with repeated use it has completely cured 3 of us and I don't believe that can be coincidence.

Hello, Debbie. I'm completely new to the site, and I was reading all the messages concerning dif. ideas of how to get better. Can you tell more how long you had the PF problem and how long it took you to get rid of the problem. What else did you do? Thanks, Elena
