The innovative Alter-G Anti-Gravity treadmill is a game changer in physical therapy. Whether you’re a patient with a lower-body injury, chronic pain or neurological conditions that inhibit mobility, you can benefit from the unweighting capabilities. The Alter-G uses NASA technology to reduce stress on joints and injured areas of your lower body, taking you further, faster than you ever thought possible after surgery, injury or other mobility impairment.
The Alter-G helps us get post-op patients walking and functioning sooner, helps MS and Parkinson’s patients exercise easier and speeds up the rehabilitation process for athletes recovering from injury. The New York Jets, New England Patriots and Washington Redskins, as well as The Hospital for Special Surgery also use the Alter-G to better the recovery of their patients.
The number of applications to which the Alter-G lends itself well is expansive. Here are just a few examples:
- Joint Replacement
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Osteo and Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Osteoporosis (simulates buoyancy)
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Overuse Injuries
- Performance Enhancement
- Cardiovascular Endurance
- Back, Hip, Knee, Foot Issues
- Orthopedic Rehabilitation
- Recovery from Surgery and Injury
For the senior population, the strengthening and conditioning that the Alter-G provides can mean maintaining independence, whether it is something as simple as dressing yourself or maintaining an active lifestyle.
