The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill offers a revolutionary approach to athletic training and rehabilitation. From achieving athletic goals through conditioning, to recovering from an injury or surgery, AlterG provides benefits like no other treadmill can.
The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill helps to maximize your fitness and rehab outcomes by defying gravity, allowing you to regain and develop function like never before. AlterG's patented NASA technology offers a unique differential air pressure that allows for precise partial weight bearing, providing an accurate, safe and comfortable exercise experience.

From professional athletes to senior citizens, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill offers accelerated athletic training and optimal recovery.
