I doubt the benefits are worth the 20 or 30 bucks you will have to drop on them. If you want to do extended ROM pushups just elevate your hands on some books. The likely reason that most people give positive reviews saying that "they work" is that they were probably too fucking lazy to do anything about it, but once they have paid for an exercise device they feel obliged to do something with it. If you are on this site that most likely cannot be said of you.

i've tried them, I personally don't like them.. but people at the gym I used to work at, many of them loved the perfect pushup.. I actually don't like the rotation, feels weird.

they are only about $8 shipped in Taiwan.  :-)  i like the idea behind it and most reviews on amazon are quite positive about it.  adarq: maybe you'll like them if you tried them for a bit longer?!

Suspended push-ups > perfect push-ups

Ie, blast straps, TRX. I made my own with climbing rope, carabiners, and handles, works great.

ya TRX/blast straps (or homemade) I would definitely use more than perfect pushup.. i liked the hamstring stuff on TRX, and pushups/pullups etc.

i ordered 3 home gym items to help me achieve my new years goal of getting below 10% body fat by jan 31st 2011.  a pull up bar for the door way, push up pro, and a roller wheel thingy for the abs.  all 3 items together only cost me $28 in taiwan and they are nice little helpers.

i do like using the push up helper it does give me a better push up work out.  since i can go a little deeper than just palms on the floor.  for $9 it's a good deal.  it helps a lot with close grip push ups actually, less strains on the wrist.

I got a pair of them from a friend who was gonna throw them away. I just use them as push up bars to get better ROM. Work great for that, if not better because it requires a bit of stabilization too. Kinda makes it a little bit like dumbbell press...but upside down if that makes sense.

how are they easier?  if anything, the fact that it rotates (the one i got, marketed in usa as push up pro actually doesn't spin all that freely) seem to use more stabilizing muscles.
