Introducing the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill ®
The Anti-Gravity Treadmill® developed with NASA technology for rehabilitation following injury to the lower extremities and for effective athletic conditioning and performance enhancement at partial body weight. The first FDA-cleared therapeutic device that allows precise partial weight bearing exercise.
How Does it Work?
The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill® creates a powerful lifting force using Advanced Differential Air Pressure Technology (ADAPT) that allows for ultra-low impact ambulation. The user wears neoprene shorts and zips into a pressurized, airtight enclosure suspended over the treadmill surface. By controlling the pressure in the enclosure, the user can change his/her weight, reducing it by as much as 80% in precise 1% increments. Achieve a natural gait free of interference from water or tethers which transitions seamlessly back to full weight bearing.

Impact loading on the lower extremities is reduced by lowering body weight. The FDA has cleared the Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill® for use in the following conditions:
- lower body injury and surgery rehabilitation
- aerobic conditioning
- weight control and reduction
- sport specific conditioning programs
- neurologic retraining
For Performance Enhancement
Train longer, run faster, gain additional strength and enhance cardiovascular performance:
- overspeed training
- interval training
- lateral movement training
- backwards running drills up to 10mph in reverse
- hill training at up to 15% incline
For Increasing Training Volume and Minimizing Stress-Related Injury
Supplement standard training with the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill® and improve aerobic conditioning without increasing the risk of stress injury. It provides accurate unweighting for a significant reduction in ground reaction force.
Most sessions will be covered by insurance if you have a lower extremity injury.
To Maximize Fitness Retention During Rehabilitation
Athletes need to be able to maintain high fitness levels while they are injured. Match the aerobic intensity of an athlete’s workout and lower the impact on his/her injured body by using a combination of adjustable variables:
- weight adjustment (100% to 20% weight-bearing in 1% increments)
- speed adjustment (0mph to 18mph)
- incline adjustment (0% to 15%)
