Alter-G, Anti-Gravity Treadmill
The AlterG® Anti Gravity Treadmill® is the latest in technology for physical therapy, utilizing the NASA Differential Air Pressure technology. The Anti Gravity Treadmill® is designed to help recover mobility, improve wellness, and enhance physical performance. From athletes to seniors, all patients can benefit from this new technology and equipment from AlterG.
The Science Behind AlterG
Backed by clinical evidence, the Anti Gravity Treadmill® can be used to treat Orthopedics, Chronic Conditions, Athletic Performance, and even Neurological Conditions. The AlterG® Anti Gravity Treadmill® uses Differential Air Pressure technology to unweight patients and athletes to enable an unprecedented level of comfort and mobility – without impeding natural gait mechanics. The AlterG® can use gently unweight users to 20% of their body weight at a comfortable pace of 1% increments. By unweighting users to 20% of their body weight, the treadmill allows patients to perform weight-bearing exercises sooner than normal to speed up the healing process and get you back on your feet in no time! Real-time gait analytics are provided to therapists and patients in order to review movement and correct any impairment quickly.
Unlike other treadmill systems, this new system allows users to exercise comfortably and freely without the restriction of a harness and uses the air pressure to create a safe environment to prevent further damage and injuries in case of a fall. The fear of falling and worsening an injury can be demotivating, but the safety of the Anti Gravity Treadmill can empower patients to move AND recover.
