Gravity Eliminated

The Alter G treadmill leads the way in unweighting or gravity eliminated therapy.  This environment assists our patients in recovery from surgery or injury and often allows rehabilitation to start sooner.  It is also an amazing device to manage neurological conditions, assist in weight loss and actively exercise patients that are a fall risk.  Athletes also benefit from the Alter G as it allows training while minimizing the risk of stress-related injuries.
