At last someone is thinking of coordination-challenged people like myself. The cordless jump-rope (you heard that right, a jump-rope without the rope) has now been patented (patent#: US 7037243). The handles are designed to give you the feel of a rope swinging around yet the person in the middle can now jump up and down without dreading the sudden loss of rhythm and the inevitable whack on the back of the neck. I think they should require all schools to use these to prevent prejudice on the playground against coordination-challenge students. Clumsy kids have a right to play too!
