WHAT IS AN ALTER-G ANTI-GRAVITY TREADMILL?
Originally conceived by Dr Robert Whalen to design effective exercise regimens for NASA’s astronauts, Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology has been adapted by AlterG for use in training and rehabilitation.
The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a medical device that can be used for:
Unweighting is achieved 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 user’s body weight in 1% increments. Something no other unweighting modality can do.
Clinical studies show that the AlterG can help decrease ground reaction forces in walking and running. The restoration of normal gait mechanics is paramount to optimal recovery and can be accelerated by the unweighting technology.
