AlterG®

Anti-Gravity Treadmill

What is it?

The AlterG® is the first FDA cleared therapeutic device that allows for precise partial weight-bearing exercise.  Developed using NASA technology for exercise programs in training astronauts, AlterG® uses differential air pressure chambers to precisely lift the user from 100% to as little as 20% of the user’s calibrated body weight.  Reduction in body weight can occur in 1% increments allowing for a gradual progression into full weight-bearing activities.

For Rehabilitation

  • Pre- and Post-Surgical Rehabilitation
  • Continue training while healing by gradually progressing to full weight bearing
  • Neurologic and Proprioceptive Training
  • Safely build bone density and restore range of motion for improved functional capacity
  • Prosthetic Training for improved balance
  • Weight Control Programs
  • Sport Specific Conditioning
  • Promotes Cardiovascular health in a safe environment
  • Makes running possible for those not previously able to do so
  • Minimizes Joint Stress and Pain

For Sports Performance

  • Improved aerobic conditioning while reducing ground reaction forces
  • Safer adaptation to increased mileage (eg. marathon training) and transitioning to minimalist running
  • Overspeed training (run faster longer) and hill intervals (0-15% incline)
  • Interval Training in a controlled setting
