The AlterG® enables athletes to train harder and enhance their physical therapy experience while rehabilitating from a sports related injury. With the AlterG®, you can:
- Maintain and develop fitness while recovering from an injury.
- Achieve a higher level of conditioning without putting extra stress on your joints and muscles.
- Recover faster after a game, race, or hard workout – “active recovery”
- Track progress clearly and easily.
- Develop the confidence to push yourself harder during training and rehab.
- The AlterG® is the first FDA cleared therapeutic device that allows for precise partial weight-bearing exercise.
- Developed using NASA technology for exercise programs in training astronauts, AlterG® uses differential air pressure chambers to precisely lift the user from 100% to as little as 20% of the user’s calibrated body weight.
- Reduction in body weight can occur in 1% increments allowing for a gradual progression into full weight-bearing activities.
