AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill

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.

My Graphic

AlterG treadmills incorporate air pressure technology to provide a ‘weightless’ 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 weight can minimise joint stress and pain, making the AlterG treadmill ideal for weight loss. It also allows older patients to overcome their mobility challenges by exercising at fractional body weights.

High Performance Training for Athletes

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 minimising 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.

Conditions treated using the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill include:

  • 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
