Train Like a Pro or Rehab Faster with Anti-Gravity Treadmill

The Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill, the world’s first and only treadmill that uses NASA-developed anti-gravity technology, was recently installed in the training facility of Salus, Inc., a company that provides innovative corporate wellness and fitness solutions. Once only available to elite athletes or through physical rehabilitation centers, Alter-G was designed for lower body injury and surgery rehabilitation, sport-specific conditioning programs, neurologic retraining, and geriatric strength and conditioning. In addition to those uses, Salus now offers the treadmill to the public for aerobic conditioning and weight control and reduction. Individuals may pay for sessions by the minute or purchase a package of sessions, and participation is not limited to Salus clients.
Alter-G’s Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology reduces weight on the lower extremities and permits users to exercise with the force of their body weight reduced by up to 80 percent. Patients can use Alter-G to quickly return to partial weight-bearing exercises when recovering from injury or surgery. It allows obese patients to immediately experience what it would feel like to weigh less, exercise with less joint impact and improve their cardiovascular health.
Athletes use the Alter-G to reduce the frequency of injury, build fitness, strengthen muscles and improve their muscular coordination. Local Ironman participant Michael O’Connor reports, “As I rehab my injuries, I have been able to continue running on the Alter-G at a reduced percentage of my weight.”
