I checked out the 3 bar leg stretcher and it seems that would be the thing to get to help you stretch. Of course, you could always just find someone to help you do some stretches and get a similar effect.

I have had that 3 bar machine, and I am thinking of making myself another one just for fun. But seriously, if you want a good deep stretch you work on your own or with a partner. You can get more done with your self and a peice of floor than you could with a machine.

Having said that, it is kind of fun and makes me remember 20 years back when I was a younger guy stretching out in class after using this machine.
