The Alter-G is a treadmill that allows a patient to walk, jog, run, exercise with the ability to reduce gravity’s impact on their joints by removing anywhere from 0% to 80% of their body weight. The Alter-G works by using a NASA patented Differential Air Pressure unweighting technology.

f you've forgotten what it’s like to walk or run without pain or the fear of falling, an AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill™ system will help you experience a level of freedom you may not have thought possible. Whether you want to get back to life as quickly as possible after orthopedic injury or surgery, or you want to gain strength and endurance while managing a neurological condition, chronic disease, or obesity – AlterG can give you new power to achieve your goals.


Elevate your recovery and quality of life with AlterG

  • Provides gentle unweighting from 100% to as low as 20% of body weight in precise 1% increments for low-impact, pain-free movement.
  • Innovative technology supports normal walking and running biomechanics – unlike conventional alternatives such as hydrotherapy and harness systems.
  • Real-time gait data and live video monitoring help you with immediate visual feedback to improve your experience and results.
  • Fall-safe environment gives you the confidence to move
  • Allows you to move pain-free again.
  • Enables weight-bearing exercise sooner while protecting sensitive healing tissues.
  • Encourages range of motion, shown to improve outcomes.
  • Reduces gravitational forces to help maintain – or regain – healthy conditioning.
  • Potential treatment applications:
    Post-fracture
    Post-operative rehab
    ACL reconstruction
    Meniscectomies & meniscus repairs
    Microfracture
    Total hip & total knee replacement
    Achilles reconstruction
    Post-injury rehab

 

Neuro

  • Supports motor learning in a fall-safe environment.
  • Enables repetition of functional activities like walking and standing while preserving normal mechanics.
  • Provides support in a controlled setting for static and dynamic standing practice for balance, control, and strength.
  • Potential treatment applications:
    Stroke recovery
    Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
    Incomplete spinal cord injury
    Parkinson’s disease

 

Chronic conditions and weight management
