Injuries & Conditions, which the Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill is used for?
Neurological Conditions
Regular exercise in people with neurological diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease have been shown helps reduce one's risk for memory loss, slow rate of functional decline, improve mobility, lessen muscle waste and gain in psychological health.
The ability to tap into the plasticity of the brain and encourage motor learning is the key to any neurological rehabilitation program. The AlterG's unique unweighting technology enables neurological patients to work longer and more comfortably, the result of neurological rehabilitation with the AlterG is greater progress when practicing skills needed for standing and walking.
Lower Back Pain
Low back pain is one of the most common symptoms experienced and almost everyone at some point will have it interfere with work or play. One of the major contributors to this problem is the sedentary nature of most jobs and careers in our age of technology. The ability to decrease ground impact forces with walking and running in the AlterG can help encourage activity while minimizing stress to the spine. The result is a healthier, stronger back and happier, pain-free living.
Hip & Pelvis Injuries
One of the largest and strongest joints in the body and a key component in balance, problems at the hip can significantly impact static and dynamic stability and posture. By using AlterG's unique progressive loading technology, pain can be reduced and strength improved, so the hip can play its primary role of supporting the body's weight and providing a stable foundation for movement.
Knee Injuries & Reconstructions
The knee is particularly vulnerable to both acute injury and arthritis because of its load-bearing role and functional requirements. Use of the AlterG can decrease impact at the knee joint, reduce pain and restore gait mechanics for a variety of knee conditions. The Alter G's progressive loading helps speed recovery for knee injuries and return users to the activities they love.
