AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill

The Anti-Gravity TreadmillIf you have suffered an injury or gone through surgery, you know the recovery process can be long and challenging. Whether you're a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, a senior citizen or a young competitor, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill can help optimize your treatment outcomes to get you back faster to the activities you love.

With the AlterG the science of healing and art of training merge to speed your recovery. This means you can spend more of your time living your life instead of fixing your physical problems.

The AlterG M320 Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a medical device that can be used for:

  • Rehabilitation of lower extremity injuries.
  • Treatment of neurological conditions.
  • Weight reduction.
  • Aerobic conditioning.
  • General training to combat the diseases of aging.

Unweighting is acieved in the AlterG by using air in a pressure-controlled chamber to gently lift the user. Precise calibration using our patented technology allows for very specific unweighting from 100-20% of the users body weight in 1% increments. This is something no other unweighting modality can do.

Why Unweight Treatments?

  • Allow for the protection of healing issues
  • Encourage range of motion
  • Prevent disuse atrophy
  • Encourage more rapid return of motor control
  • Increase endurance
