cats run on wheels like hamsters?

Was looking up ideas to get kitty to exercise more and stumbled upon this. Apparently they manufacture these at:
http://www.catwheelcompany.com/
There are multiple youtube videos that make this look pretty successful. Mostly vids of bengal cats but some domestic cats too:

bengal --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDwZfhdkA3M#movie_player
regular dsh --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0gy-9GL ... re=related
homemade cat wheel --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8p_p_1_2 ... re=related

These vids make the wheels look pretty effective at increasing exercise...maybe they are worth a shot? I mean, vids of other toys like panic mouse often have a few bored cats but all the vids for the wheel show some interest.

You have to wonder, how many cats do they try, to get a few "film-able" runners on the wheel?
