    What is the Alter G?

    The Alter G Treadmill is a revolutionary piece of rehabilitation equipment. This concept of this state of the art technology began at NASA and has now been adapted into the rehab world. The machine itself consists of a traditional treadmill belt encapsulated by a pressurized compartment. Patients put on specialized neoprene shorts which allows them to be zipped into the pressure compartment. Once calibrated, the machine can be set in 1% increments to increase or decrease the pressure. This allows the patient to feel as if they weigh as little as 20% of their actual body weight, all the way up to 100% their body weight.

    • Reduce gravity’s impact by selecting any weight between 20% and 100% of your body weight in 1% increments
    • Rehab faster from injuries or surgery on your hip, knee, ankle, foot or even after a total joint replacement
    • Safely improve your strength and conditioning in a fall-safe environment to fend off ailments and mobility impairments that with come age
    • Effectively improve gait and strength from neurological mobility impairments
    • Avoid injury during conditioning and fitness improvement programs
    • Easily track progress during training or rehabilitation

    What Does Alter G Do?

    The Alter G treadmill allows for typical forward treadmill motion at varying speeds. Also, with the push of a button, can be set in a backward motion allowing a patient to walk backwards. While inside the machine, patients can also be turned sideways to focus work on the lateral musculature of the lower body. The machine can also be used for stationary exercises. This provides support and help with balance. The “unweighting” phenomenon is like that of aquatic therapy, however the Alter G Treadmill allows for precise and measurable changes to weight bearing.
