The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill® has revolutionized medical rehabilitation equipment with its unique differential air pressure technology that provides accurate, safe and comfortable partial weight-bearing therapy while promoting normal gait patterns.
Unlike the simple lift harness devices, AlterG rehabilitation treadmills incorporate differential air pressure technology developed by NASA and enhanced by AlterG to provide precise unweighting in one percent increments to as low as 20 percent of the patient’s body weight. AlterG’s exclusive precision gives patients the ability to set the exact point where exercise becomes pain free and provides clinicians a way to accurately measure patient rehabilitation progress. This revolutionary medical rehab equipment is used and recommended by leading physical therapy clinics, hospitals, colleges and pro sports teams.

Most lower extremity rehabilitation programs stress the importance of becoming mobile as soon as possible. AlterG rehabilitation treadmills offer the most advanced anti-gravity approach to physical therapy based on “unweighting” technology. It is safe, effective and FDA cleared and covered by many health insurance plans.
“The AlterG is amazing! In March when I started, I had to goal to run again after hip surgery in June 2014. Starting at 40%, I gingerly began running. Each week I added 5%, inching closer to my goal. Today, I ran for 20 minutes at 100%! I have not done that since October 2013 when I finished my 2nd marathon. Without the AlterG, I’m not sure I’d have the courage to try running again, but it’s an activity I love! Thanks for helping me get my running legs back!” Marcie Jannetti
