AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill
Body Weight Support Gait
How does the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill work?
The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill allows patients to walk or run on a treadmill with minimally invasive body weight support. The AlterG has adjustable levels of support and transparent sides with in-device cameras so that the patient and their therapy team can actively view and correct their stride and gait patterns while exercising.
As strength is regained, the level of support can be gradually reduced until a patient is able to support their own weight on a treadmill. Walking data is collected in real-time and presented on screen so that the patient can maximize their performance and natural motion patterns.
What types of injuries or conditions can the AlterG Treadmill help?
The AlterG treadmill is a very popular fixture at the Brooks Outpatient Center for Sports Therapy, as it’s ideal for outpatient rehabilitation of orthopedic conditions and athletic injuries.
