Aquatic Therapy Benefits without Water

The AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill® is revolutionizing fitness by allowing you to run or walk with reduced impact. Through patented NASA technology, the Anti-Gravity Treadmill provides up to 80% body weight support to reduce the stress and strain on your body. The benefits of controlling gravity and reducing your body weight while you walk or run allowing you to:

  • Walk or run without discomfort or pain
  • Burn more calories by going farther or faster than you normally can
  • Train through injuries
  • Improve your balance and control without fear of falling
  • Build strength and coordination more easily
  • Reduce the risk of re-injury after returning to the field, court, or track
  • Evaluate gait training and strengthening for neurological patients

Chosen by sports medicine experts, top athletes, and trainers as the best low impact running or walking training tool, the Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a new way to improve your fitness, lose weight, and train smarter.

Top senior care facilities such as Life Care Centers of America, Kindred Healthcare, UCSF Orthopedic Institute, National Rehabilitation Hospital, and many more are using the revolutionary technology of the AlterG.
