The Anti-Gravity Treadmill, manufactured by AlterG uses cutting edge, precise unweighting technology to enable users to train harder and faster than ever before whilst significantly accelerating physical therapy rehabilitation programs.
The Anti-Gravity Treadmill helps a broad spectrum of people including professional athletes, orthopaedic and neurological patients, children, seniors and those looking to lose weight.
Engineered by NASA, the AlterG utilises the latest in Advanced Differential Air Pressure Technology (ADAPT) to ‘unweight’ the user by as much as 80% in precise 1% increments enabling people to accelerate weight loss, rehab faster from injury or train like a professional. Allowing people to run and walk at a fraction of their body weight (reducing up to 80% of a person’s weight), the AlterG applies a precise and comfortable lifting force to the body, so people can move naturally and pain free.
Reducing body weight provides numerous benefits including significantly minimising the impact on joints and muscles to provide a great introduction to exercise for users who have had a break from physical activity or who are overweight/obese; as well as those who are recovering from injury.
Trevor Donald, European Sales Director at AlterG, said:
AlterG’s Anti-Gravity Treadmill is easy to use and once the user steps into the equipment, the air chamber inflates around their lower body and the air pressure literally ‘floats’ them off the treadmill to the body weight setting they have selected creating a safe environment to work on technique and training, with a significant reduction in ground forces.
A huge number of sports clubs, gyms and health clubs around the UK are already enjoying the benefits from AlterG. Customers include top athletes, many Premiership Football Clubs and top rugby teams across the country including MK Dons and London Broncos; the AlterG is also used by the Ministry of Defence for rehabilitation purposes.
