Alter G® Anti-Gravity Treadmill® featuring Stride Smart™

DPTSI is proud to offer the new AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill featuring Stride Smart™ Gait Analytics & Video Monitoring.  AlterG® builds life-changing technology that is reinventing physical rehabilitation and training with the goal of enabling people to sustain healthy and active lives through mobility. The innovative Anti-Gravity Treadmills® are designed to enhance rehab and training for everyone, from professional athletes to seniors to children.  It provides our patients a rehab and training experience unlike ever before.

Using NASA-developed Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology, gentle lifting forces are applied using air to unweight patients to as little as 20% of their bodyweight.  This procecss enables a precise adjustable reduction in impact and gravitational forces while walking, running, or during closed-kinetic chain exercise.

Stance Time Symmetry

Helps patients correct asymmetries to achieve increased step length, walking speed, and improved stance time.

Cadence

Improvements can lead to faster gait, better mobility, and improved health.

Pain Recording

Correlating gait and unweighting with patient-reported pain scores helps establish optimal parameters for therapy.

Demonstration of Anti-Gravity Treadmill at
University of Michigan Medicine

Michigan Medicine’s MedSport offers runners of all types state-of-the-art training and rehabilitation care. Alter-G is the newest addition to their treatment options. Originally used by professional athletes and astronauts, Alter-G is an anti-gravity treadmill that can be used in physical therapy by controlling joint loading or as an adjunct to typical training as a way to gain extra miles with reduced impact loading.

Olympian and National Champion - Adam Goucher

Adam Goucher, US Olympian and 10 time National Champion in Cross Country & Track talks about the AlterG. Prior to the 2006 World Cross Country Championships, he improved his cardiovascular fitness by running an extra 25-30 miles using the AlterG sports treadmill. Adam eventually placed 6th in the world at the Championships! AlterG's Antigravity Treadmill is ideal for cardiac rehabilitation and physical therapy exercise.
