AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill

Rehabilitation, Running, and Exercising Program

AlterG's NASA-patented Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology applies a lifting force to the body, reducing weight on lower extremities and allowing precise unweighting – up to 80% of a person’s body weight. Whether you are a patient with degenerative joint disease wanting to walk pain-free, or a post-operative patient trying to get back to normal activity, the AlterG enables faster rehabilitation and safer conditioning.
