Pacific THERx Physical Therapy and Fitness is pleased to present the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill. Using patented technology originally developed at NASA and later refined for use in rehabilitation and fitness applications, the AlterG allows for precise control of partial weight bearing exercise. Using differential air pressure technology to lessen ground reaction forces, the user can walk or run with as low as 20% of their body weight. The AlterG system also includes 3 different camera views of your gait to analyze and adjust WHILE running/walking. Pacific THERx also offers professional gait/running analysis from their expert physical therapy staff.

Benefits of the AlterG

  • Normal neuromuscular recruitment for running/walking with less stress to joints.
  • Strengthening with precise control of the load/resistance through more or less body weight.
  • Continued/earlier cardiovascular fitness through injury that would otherwise be worsened with fully weighted running.
  • Graded work outs that enable progressive re-loading of the body after common overuse injuries such as musculotendinous injury and bone stress reactions.

Anti-Gravity Treadmill Makes More Possible

  • Progressive and earlier return from overuse injuries like patellofemoral pain, patellar and achilles tendinitis, and stress fractures/reactions.
  • Weight reduction and control without excessive stress to the joints.
  • Rehabilitation from recent surgery, including lower extremity arthroscopy and joint replacements.
  • Continued safe running/walking with arthritic joints.
  • Fitness programs for individuals with compressive low back pathology, as impact from running/walking translates up the kinetic chain through the foot/ankle, knee, hip and into the spine.
  • Safe conditioning and strengthening for individuals with balance deficits. Gait/running technique correction with the assistance of 3 different camera views.
