AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill For Athletes

June 21, 2019

Getting injured for an athlete can be a frustrating problem, especially with the long recovery times and less than ideal conditions that simply hold back your potential. As a physical therapist, there used to be only so much that one can do in order to speed up recovery. However, with the introduction of the AlterG anti-gravity treadmill technology, physical therapy has never been more innovative and impactful with this cutting-edge technology. Athletes are now able to undergo rehabilitation faster than ever, be it post injury or surgery.

Rehabilitation for the competitive athlete as well as those who require faster recovery time from their injuries is now more accessible with the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill, tailored for athletic training. Every aspect of fitness is important, and much so during one’s recovery period. This is where the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill comes in, allowing athletes who are serious about their recovery to train longer, build their cardiovascular fitness and recover at a quicker pace. With technology invented by NASA, the AlterG anti-gravity treadmill allows one to safely and naturally train, reducing the impact on their joints through the reduction in the forces of gravity.

What is really impressive is the flexibility and customizability of the AlterG technology, something that is imperative for athletes. With the patented differential air pressure technology that allows the athlete to train at as low as 20% of their body weight and have increments of 1% thereafter, it ensures the athlete is getting and training at only the best conditions available for him. That aside, real-time gait mechanics and data recording of the individual is provided, allowing one to make only the best decision thereafter.

If you are still wondering if your injury is a good match with the AlterG, then look no further. Patients with fractures, post-operative rehabilitation, Achilles reconstruction, meniscectomies and meniscus repairs, ACL reconstruction, and microfractures have been treated with the AlterG technology with great results.

Not to mention, competitive teams such as the Boston Red Sox, Denver Broncos, Golden State Warriors and Philadelphia Flyers are all satisfied customers of the AlterG technology, proving its very effectiveness.

The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill has revolutionized rehabilitation since its inception, bringing the patient both lower healthcare costs and faster recovery time. Athletes are now able to be treated at 3-4 weeks post-op compared to 6-8 weeks in the past, paving the way for stronger and healthier athletes in every sport.

Should you be looking for a more responsive and customizable physical therapy session, then perhaps it is time to push your boundaries and go further with AlterG.
