  • AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill

    Pain-free exercise after surgery or injury with AlterG

    The AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill gives the opportunity to exercise without pain, even while recovering from surgery or injury.

    "I took a terrible fall skiing in the mountains last winter. At the time, I was training for a 10-mile race. I was so discouraged, as every time I attempted to return to running, I was unable to do so because of knee pain. I saw an orthopedic surgeon, who recommended the AlterG.

    Using the AlterG felt like I was walking on air. It totally reduced the stress on my knees and allowed me to keep up my cardio training.

    There is nothing to replace running for a runner. I was thrilled to have found the AlterG."

    "After my knee surgery, the Alter G treadmill helped me go from non-weight bearing to fully able to walk in a significantly shorter time than with other traditional methods. I also used the Alter G Treadmill to begin my rehab back into running which has gone extremely well.

    I would recommend the Alter G Treadmill to anyone who has an injury and wants to maintain a level of fitness while recovering."
