Pinnacle Performance Physical Therapy and Wellness Center is pleased to enhance the rehabilitation efforts of our patients with our in-house Anti-Gravity Treadmill, the Alter GTM.
Created by a California company using NASA-inspired technology, the treadmill is unique because it underweights its users through differential air pressure.
Consider the reality that an overweight person will sustain a greater impact on their body as their foot strikes a treadmill than a lighter weight person. The anti-gravity treadmill allows us to dial down what you weigh until it is only 20 per cent of your actual weight.
National Basketball Association superstars Kobe Bryant and LeBron James both used Alter G to recover from injuries and return quickly to their game.
Cleared by the United States Federal Drug Administration in 2008, the Alter G is used primarily to rehabilitation lower extremity injuries or surgery, weight control, aerobic conditioning and strengthening and condition for the elderly.
We have also found it to be effective in assisting with neurological retraining and balance and gait deficits as well as many orthopedic conditions.
It is also effective for recreational and professional athletes to train longer, run faster and gain additional strength and increased cardiovascular performance.
