Anti-Gravity Treadmill: AlterG
How does the AlterG work?
Thanks to its precise unweighting technology, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill allows you to improve fitness and therapy results without the unwanted strain on your joints. It can be used for physical therapy, training for athletes, preparing for surgery, and helping individuals at all fitness levels become stronger and faster.
Who can benefit?
The Anti-Gravity Treadmill helps a broad spectrum of people to achieve their personal health, wellness, or performance goals.
- Elite and recreational athletes: Train without pain and reduce the stress to joints and muscles. Recover effectively and with less discomfort after training or competition.
- Patients recovering from hip, knee, leg, foot, and ankle injuries: Safely speed your recovery from any lower extremity injury with reduced pain and impact on the injured area.
- Patients preparing for total joint surgery for knees and hips: Build muscle strength surrounding the joint, support healthy weight loss, and build cardiovascular health to improve recovery after surgery.
- Seniors: Enhance mobility and walk or even jog farther, faster, and with more stability than you may have previously thought possible. The AlterG also helps with preventing falls, and improving health and wellness to achieve more independence in your day-to-day life.
