Anti-Gravity Treadmill

How Does an Anti-Gravity Treadmill Work?

Health Knowledge

The technology was originally conceived in the '90s by two inventors to design effective exercise regimens for NASA’s astronauts. Then it was adapted by AlterG, a company based in Fremont, Calif., for use in training and rehabilitation.

An anti-gravity treadmill looks like your typical gym machine, except for one difference: an air-filled bag that fits around a person’s torso and lower extremities. And that’s where the magic happens. Users wear shorts that zipper into the air chamber. Then an airtight seal is formed and the chamber inflates. The user then gets lifted slightly, reducing the amount of body weight the legs have to carry, thus allowing users to walk or run at less than their actual weight. How much less? As low as 20 percent of their body weight, effectively giving them the weightlessness they would have on the moon.

Why people love Anti-Gravity Treadmill

Health Knowledge
  • Patented NASA technology allows for precise partial weight bearing.
  • Rehab and train like never before.
  • Allowing you to walk or run with no pain while maintaining a normal gait.
  • Reducing stress on joints and injured areas of your lower body.
  • Giving you the confidence and ability to run or walk longer and recover faster with less pain.
  • Professional Teams and Elite Medical Facilities are using the Anti-Gravity to revolutionize recovery programs.

The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a medical device that can be used for:

Health Knowledge
  • Rehabilitation of lower extremity injuries
  • Treatment of neurological conditions
  • Weight reduction
  • Aerobic conditioning
  • General training to combat the diseases of aging

Unweighting is achieved in the AlterG by using air in a pressure-controlled chamber to gently lift the user. Precise calibration using our patented technology allows for very specific unweighting from 100-20% of the users body weight in 1% increments. Something no other unweighting modality can do.

Why Unload?

Health Knowledge
  • Allow for the protection of healing tissue.
  • Encourage range of motion.
  • Earlier initiation of closed-kinetic chain activity.
  • Prevent disuse atrophy.
  • Encourages more rapid return of motor control.
