Anti-Gravity Treadmill

What is an Anti-Gravity Treadmill?

The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill uses precise unweighting technology to comfortably lift the user and allow him/her to walk or run at a fraction of their body weight.  The unique unweighting with air pressure allows you to push your physical therapy rehabilitation and training further than ever before. 

What are the benefits of using an Anti-Gravity Treadmill?

  • Reduce gravity’s impact by selecting any weight between 20% and 100% of your body weight by 1% increments
  • Rehabilitate lower extremity injuries with less pain and less impact sooner
  • Provide a safe way to lose weight and exercise more intensively while unweighted
  • Train without pain and reduce the stress to joints and muscles
  • Recover effectively and with less pain after training or competition

Who can benefit from utilizing the Anti-Gravity Treadmill?

  • Top-level athletes looking to put in extra training without the extra impact to the joints and the body.
