Rehabilitation after an injury or surgery can sometimes be difficult because of pain. The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill®, developed with NASA technology, solves this problem by allowing patients to exercise at reduced body weight, while maintaining normal running or walking movements.
At Overlook Medical Center’s Department of Medicine and Physical Rehabilitation, we offer this anti-gravity treadmill for a wide variety of patients, including:
Orthopedic patients with limited strength, weight-bearing restrictions or those recovering from surgery
Lower extremity amputees learning to use their prosthetic device
Arthritis patients whose pain limits their movements
Athletes recovering from injuries
Active runners looking to reduce stress on their muscles and joints
Post-physical therapy patients who want to re-establish an exercise routine
In any case, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill improves the strength and conditioning process, reduces pain and provides a smoother progression to full recovery. For more information or to arrange a demonstration, please call 908-522-2215.
