AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill
JAG-ONE Physical Therapy Helps Patients Rehab Faster and Safer with the AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill®
Located in several of our convenient locations, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill, the world’s first and only treadmill using NASA based anti-gravity technology to help patients in their short-term rehabilitation programs.
AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmills enable faster rehabilitation, safer conditioning for the geriatric population, and weight loss, which can help remove major obstacles associated with these activities. Impact on the body and the pain of recovery are reduced, which helps people achieve better results. Patients at JAG-ONE Physical Therapy can now rehab better, train smarter, and exercise safer with the AlterG.
JAG-ONE Physical Therapy will utilize the AlterG to create specialized programs for the tri-athlete, marathon runner, arthritis patient and post-operative patient. As most of us know, after experiencing an injury the recovery process can be long, challenging, and exhausting. With the utilization of the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill, JAG-ONE Physical Therapy will help patients optimize their treatment outcomes to get you back to doing the things you love faster.
With the AlterG, patients can run and walk without bearing their entire weight, reducing the impact on the body to optimize rehabilitation and physical therapy outcomes. Its Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology applies a lifting force to the body that reduces weight on the lower extremities and allows precise unweighting – up to 80% of a person’s body weight, so people can find exactly where the pain stops and natural movement feels good again.
There are a multitude of benefits when training and rehabilitating on the AlterG. Patients can use the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill to recover from injury and surgery and it allows them to immediately do partial weight bearing exercises. Patients with neurological disorders maintain, and in some cases even regain functionality and mobility working with the AlterG. It is also used as a motivational tool for obese patients, as users can immediately experience what it would feel like to weigh less, exercise with less joint impact and stress, and improve their cardiovascular health.
AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmills are designed to be used for lower body injury and surgery rehabilitation, aerobic conditioning, weight control and reduction, sport specific conditioning programs, neurologic retraining, and geriatric strength and conditioning.
