Decatur’s only Alter G, Antigravity Treadmill, uses patented NASA air pressure technology to unload a client’s normal body weight. A client will be able to walk or run from a range of 100 percent body weight down to only 20 percent of his/her body weight. The treadmill controls the client’s body weight by lifting and unloading the patient by pumping air into the air chamber. The Alter G treadmill is very beneficial for clients who want to exercise as well as recover from injuries.

There are several benefits of the Alter G:

Gait re-education:

We can unload a client’s body weight until a patient is able to walk a normal gait pattern without limping or “favoring” a side.

Rehabilitation:

In collaboration with other exercises and manual techniques we can use the gait training effects to improve patient’s outcome from, back, hip, knee, ankle and foot injuries or surgeries.

Exercise/Weight Loss:

If someone has difficulty walking/running due to pain we can unload his/her body weight so he/she can perform at a painfree level and exercise longer.

Education:

Allows people to understand and feel what it feel like if they lost 5, 10 percent, etc of their body weight.

Safety:

There is no risk of falling off the Alter G.
