Get Faster and Safer Rehab
The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill promotes faster and safer rehabilitation for patients. For many patients recovering from accident or injury, the rehabilitation process can be quite long and enduring sometimes. The AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill® is a proven technology that has helped thousands of patients get back to the normal activities of their lives. It has worked for professional athletes, senior citizens at just about everyone in between and it can help you too.
With the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmills, patients are able to walk and even run without bearing their entire weight. This reduces the amount of impact the body sustains which has the net result of optimizing rehabilitation and improving the outcomes of physical therapy treatments. The system uses what is known as Differential Air Pressure (DAP). This technology essentially applies a lifting force to the body which reduces the amount of weight on the lower extremities. This produces an effect known as “unweighting” which reduces the effective weight of a person’s body up to 80% which allows the patience to determine precisely where the pain stops and natural movement feels good again.
Patented NASA Technology
This patented NASA technology allows for precision controlled partial load bearing with regard to the patient’s weight and allows them to rehabilitate and train like never before. This technology is used by many professional sports teams as well as state-of-the-art medical facilities and is revolutionizing recovery programs all around the country.
There are a wide range of benefits available when utilizing the AlterG for training and rehabilitation protocols. Patients are able to utilize the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill to assist in their recovery from a variety of traumas associated with injury or surgery. One of the main benefits is that it allows them to immediately participate in partial weight bearing exercises which can speed up the recovery process. It can also serve as a motivational tool for overweight patients because they can immediately experience what it would feel like to weigh less and to experience exercise with reduced joint pain and stress. The net result can improve their cardiovascular health.
AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmills are best suited for use in injuries to the lower body as well as surgical rehabilitation, aerobic conditioning, weight loss and weight control, sport specific training and conditioning programs, and geriatric conditioning and strength building.
The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill was cleared by the FDA in 2008 as a medical device and numerous clinical studies have shown it can significantly enhance recovery and rehabilitation for many patients. The technology helps protect the healing tissue, encourages range of motion and promotes more rapid return of motor control.
