Defy the forces of gravity with the Alter G treadmill
Based on differential pressure technology developed by NASA, the Alter G is a treadmill for walking rehabilitation with body weight support.
The patient’s legs are isolated in a sealed enclosure that is able to lighten body weight by up to 80%. Therefore, the patient can walk in a state of micro-gravity, which reduces joint stress, minimizes any impact phenomena and facilitates movement. Unlike standard weight support devices (lifting harness, balneotherapy…), the Alter G is able to determine the precise moment that exercise becomes painless. Consequently, movement is easier and walking becomes possible once again.
Alter G is also used for other orthopedic rehabilitation therapies (sprains, injuries muscular lesions) and after hip, knee, ankle or foot surgery as well as neurological disorders (paraplegia, hemiplegia).
