The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill’s patented Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology, developed at NASA, applies a comfortable and uniform lifting force to your body. Integrated into a high-tech treadmill, AlterG’s technology offers precise body weight reduction during walking or running. The DAP technology uses air pressure as the lifting force, so it feels comfortable and allows you to run or walk normally, with full range of motion. In fact, the AlterG is the only “unweighting” device that allows you to exercise at a reduced body weight while maintaining normal running or walking mechanics. Less impact on joints and muscles results in less pain and more gain. Users describe their initial experience on the AlterG AntiGravity Treadmill as floating or flying.
The AlterG Can be used for:
- Rehabilitation following an injury or surgery on a lower extremity (hip, knee, ankle or foot)
- Strengthening and conditioning for anyone desiring less stress through their joints
- Weight-loss programs
- Injury prevention during sport specific conditioning and fitness improvement programs
“The AlterG makes you feel like you are walking on the moon. It is such an asset for out patients who can rehabilitate with less pain, reduce the risk of further injury and heal much faster,” said Dr. Christopher Wickel, PT, DPT, Cert. MDT, a Senior Physical Therapist at Conshohocken Physical Therapy.
