Train Through Injuries

Alter-G Anti Gravity Treadmill

The AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill allows
users to run or walk with greatly reduced
impact. It provides up to 80 percent body
weight support to reduce stress and strain
on the joints to help people rehabilitate
from injury.


The AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill enables users to run or walk while reducing their body weight in 1 percent increments.

With its ability to provide up to 80 percent body support, the treadmill helps reduce stress and strain on the body. The treadmill’s technology uses an advanced air pressure system to create a lifting force to the body, so people can run or walk normally, with less pain and impact on their joints and muscles.

"The AlterG® is ideal for people who are recovering from injury or surgery or who want to achieve peak performance through an advanced training aid,” says physical therapist and clinic supervisor Kathryn Ellsworth, PT, DPT, OCS.

Controlling gravity while running or walking enables people to:

  • Enjoy a faster recover from many surgical and non-surgical conditions
  • Improve stamina and make it easier to complete daily activities
  • Eliminate pain from chronic injuires while improving strength
  • Train through injuries
  • Have access to the same peak performance tools as world-class runners.
