The Technology

AlterG’s technology was originally developed at NASA as part of an effort to help astronauts maintain fitness during prolonged space flight.  AlterG combined this technology with an advanced pressure regulation system and a treadmill to produce the first anti-gravity treadmill.  AlterG is the first company to use a pressurized enclosure to provide a counterforce to the person’s body weight, reducing their effective weight on the treadmill surface. The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill has been cleared by the FDA as a medical device applicable for uses in rehabilitation after lower extremity injury or surgery, aerobic conditioning, weight control, gait training for neurological conditions, and strengthening and conditioning for older patients.  In addition, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill has seen overwhelming adoption as a training and conditioning tool that also reduces the risk of impact-related injuries while exercising.
