The Revolutionary AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill
Can athletes benefit from using AlterG treadmills?
AlterG treadmills are highly effective conditioning tools for both recreational and competitive athletes. It allows athletes to train longer, train faster, gain additional strength, and enhance cardiovascular performance while minimizing impact and stress on their joints.
Athletes recovering from injuries can start to run up to a month before their estimated return to training. It is the perfect progression back to training with minimal risk.
The AlterG Anti-Gravity treadmill is a revolutionary medical rehabilitation treadmill. Its unique ‘unweighting’ technology provides the opportunity to rehabilitate lower extremities like never before.
AlterG treadmills incorporate air pressure technology to provide an ‘unweighting’ sensation, where your body can weigh up to 80 percent less than its actual body weight.
The technology was originally developed by NASA, and further developed by AlterG for medical rehabilitation, fitness and sports performance training.
Exercising at reduced body weights can minimise joint stress and pain. This makes AlterG treadmills are ideal for weight loss and treating obesity. It also allows older patients to overcome their mobility challenges, exercising at fractional body weights.
What are the benefits of the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill?
The AlterG Anti-gravity treadmill can be incorporated into:
- Rehabilitation following injury or surgery of the lower extremity (hip, knee, ankle or foot)
- Rehabilitation after total joint replacement
- Gait training in neurologic patients
- Strengthening and conditioning in older patients
- Weight control and reduction
- Sport specific conditioning programs
- Aerobic conditioning
