What is the Alter-G AntiGravity Treadmill?

The Alter-G AntiGravity Treadmill is a high-tech therapeutic device which allows you to recover your mobility with the support of the latest technology. It is a special treadmill that uses an air chamber to support the weight of your body, allowing you to effectively “unweight” yourself of 20% to 100% of your body weight. 

The Alter-G reduces pressure and pain on your joints or your injury, allowing you to exercise when that normally wouldn’t be possible. In addition, it keeps you upright while you are moving, making it impossible for you to fall or cause yourself to be injured.

Once the AlterG’s air chamber is fully deployed, and your weight is adjusted, you can then use the treadmill to walk or run without the impact you would normally have on your body. This permits you to access therapeutic options that strengthen your body, so eventually you may not need the support offered by the Alter-G.
