The AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill® is specifically designed to help with training and rehabilitation allowing you to:

  • Reduce gravity's impact by reducing body weight by 0–80% in 1% increments.
  • Rehabilitate lower extremity injuries with less pain and less impact.
  • Improve mobility, strength and safety for those with neurological conditions.
  • 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 is the test for?
