Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill
The AlterG anti-gravity treadmill contains NASA patented technology that allows you to reduce your body weight by as much as 80%. The AlterG is used by the military, professional sports teams, top athletic programs, universities and leading medical facilities across the nation. The Anti-Gravity Treadmill helps a broad spectrum of people – top level athletes, orthopedic and neurologic patients, pediatric, geriatric and those looking to lose weight or to achieve their personal health and performance goals.
How Does Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill Work?
AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmills uses innovative Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology that enables unprecedented unweighting therapy and training capabilities. A pressurized “anti-gravity” chamber counteracts gravitational forces, gently adjusting body weight from 100% down to as low as 20% with unparalleled precision. This uniform lifting force reduces impact, pain, and effort. All while supporting normal gait and balance – and encouraging full, free range of motion and natural movement.
What Are Conditions That Are Treated Using Alter-G?
- Rehabilitate lower extremity injuries with less pain and less impact.
- Improve mobility, strength and safety for those with neurological conditions.
- Providing support and confidence to start walking and take more steps in comfort.
- Preventing falls, which increases comfort and confidence during rehab and beyond.
- Helps children with injuries or developmental disorders train their legs to walk or even run.
- Allows for neuromuscular re-education in a fall safe environment.
- Provide a safe way to lose weight and exercise more intensively while unweighted.
- Maintain and develop fitness while rehabilitating from injury or surgery.
- Push your training sessions further and longer with less risk of injury.
- Rehabilitation after Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Athletic and endurance physical training

Alter-G is used by Seniors to treat various Neurological Conditions
When recovering from a stroke or struggling with a neurological disorder, patients are often afraid of falling. Seniors with osteoporosis are at an even greater risk, since a short fall can break bones. The Alter-G offers a unique fall-safe environment and is great for long-term care and treatment. It is virtually impossible to fall out of the AlterG, once a user is zipped into the chassis. As the Alter-G activates and the unweighting process lifts the user, it becomes easier and easier to walk. There are many convenient and solid handholds that the user can grab at any time they feel off balance.
Walking naturally is an important part of recovering from a stroke or traumatic brain injury (TBI), and the sooner the better. The Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill enables the user to start balancing exercises and walking sooner than with traditional rehab technologies. With the Alter-G doing most of the weight-bearing work, users can focus on muscle coordination in a low-impact environment without fear of falling. Neurological patients are able to walk longer and more comfortably. The result of neurological rehabilitation with the AlterG is greater progress when practicing skills needed for standing and walking.
The AlterG has been used for:
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Stroke Rehab
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Fall Prevention
- Cerebral Palsy
- Multiple Sclerosis
Alter-G is used for Pediatric Rehabilitation
The Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill makes pediatric physical therapy fun and engaging to help children recover the strength and mobility they need to get back to the fun of being a kid. It helps children get mobile before their legs are strong enough or coordinated enough to support them normally. Physical Therapy on the Alter-G builds strength and muscle memory. It can be used in therapy for children with spina bifida, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, movement and gait dysfunction, brain injuries, post-surgical rehab and more. Best of all, there are no skinned knees with the Alter-G, because it is a fall-safe environment.
Alter-G Can Be Used For Weight Loss
Excess body weight can put a lot of stress on an individual’s hips, knees, and feet. This stress can make exercise painful. In a vicious cycle, the pain reduces the ability to effectively exercise, which leads to more weight gain and more stress on the joints.
The Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill can reduce the stress on an individual’s joints instantly. Sessions on the Alter-G can improve endurance and exercise tolerance, as well as lead to weight loss. Alter-G unweighting technology provides a wonderful motivational tool for individuals by giving them the feeling of what it would be to achieve their target body weight.
