APPLICATIONS OF THE ALTERG TREADMILL:
The unique unweighting capabilities of the AlterG Treadmill allow for earlier and functional rehabilitation of patients with lower extremity injuries, or who have had lower body surgery such as a total knee replacement.
In other words, patients can be cleared to begin rehabilitating using the AlterG earlier than it might otherwise be safe for them to do so on land. By controlling body weight in 1% increments over a range of 20% – 100% body weight, patients cleared for only partial weight-bearing activities can in fact walk or run on the AlterG. This allows patients to work towards restoring a normal gait pattern, range of motion, endurance, and other functional outcome measures sooner.
Since it allows patients who are not yet able to walk or run on land to do so (and with normal gait mechanics), rehabilitation on the AlterG is also functional – it directly targets patient goals of walking and running.
The AlterG can also offer unique rehabilitation benefits for patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis, allowing them to perform optimal symptom-free exercise therapy which can reduce symptoms and delay disease progression.

“I think it’s the best piece of equipment made for running in the last 30 years, the most revolutionary piece of equipment, without a doubt!” – Alberto Salazar Director of Nike Oregon Project ( Mo Farah trainer)
The Anti-Gravity Treadmill is having a very positive effect on our patients both physically and psychologically. I would definitely recommend the treadmill to any hospital or Physiotherapy practice,’’ – Mark Maxwell, Physiotherapy Department, Torbay Hospital
Since installing the treadmill we have noticed huge benefits to our patients. We found that there were stages of rehabilitation (early post fracture for example) where we couldn’t progress the patient as much as we would have liked because we didn’t want to overload the body. We can now do this gradually and effectively on the Anti-Gravity Treadmill.’ – Jon Swan, Physiotherapy Manager, Harbour Hospital
“Getting on the treadmill was really my first step back into training and running. It was a real relief to be able to run normally again,” – former private with the 1st Battalion Yorkshire Regiment
We can’t say it much better than our friends at the Merlin MS centre in Cornwall
“The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill provides partial weight-bearing pain-free exercise. It can improve balance, gait, stride length and range of motion.It helps reduce falls and gives clients greater confidence in their daily activitie
We have only had this piece of equipment at the centre for a matter of weeks but the response from our clients has been incredible.”
Before my stroke, I played sport and had been fit. The treadmill let me run for the first time in five years. It gave me confidence to do things I couldn’t before if the machine stays at Merlin I would be able to build up my strength and retain my muscles. ”
David Neal who suffered a stroke in 2014
“It was fantastic to get that feeling of running again- like running on air. I hope to see improvements in my balance as my walking becomes more assured.”
