Body

The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill uses an unweighting technology that allows you to push your training further after injury or mobility impairment.

The AlterG reduces gravity’s impact from 20%-100% of your body weight allowing you to train longer, faster and safer. The AlerG lift access is capable of lifting clients up to 400 lbs and provides security and safety while entering and exiting the treadmill.

Using the AlterG can enhance performance for those who have met their physical therapy goals. It allows to further strengthening and conditioning for lower extremity injuries with less pain and impact.

Benefits of AlterG training:

  • Improves strength, mobility and balance for those with neurological conditions that inhibit mobility e.g. Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Guillain-Barré Syndrome, Spinal Cord Injury
  • By reducing the stress to joints and muscles it provides a safe and pain free way to exercise for those looking to lose weight and geriatric population
  • Gives you the confidence and ability to walk or run longer with less pain
