WHAT IS THE ALTER G
The Alter-G: Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a revolutionary medical rehabilitation treadmill. Using unique differential air pressure technology, developed by NASA, it allows accurate, safe and comfortable partial weight-bearing therapy while promoting normal gait patterns. This state-of-the-art treadmill uses “unweighting” at anywhere between 20 to 100% of your body weight to allow you to walk or run.
The Alter-G can be utilized by both athletes and the general population, and can assist in injury rehabilitation. It is perfect for individuals who suffer from a lower extremity injury, like an ACL reconstruction, hip or foot and ankle injury. Whether someone is post-operative or trying to prevent surgery, the Alter-G can be used to reduce the impact on joints to provide both strength and aerobic conditioning. Even stroke patients can benefit as the treadmill can help retrain their legs and brain with supported movements. Non-injured athletes have also found ways to utilise the Alter-G before and after endurance events. Runners might consider an Alter-G run to log a few miles without the impact before a marathon, or conversely as a tool for recovery after a long race.
