Utilizing its precise unweighting technology, the AlterG allows you to rehabilitate your injury or condition in a way not possible with other treadmills. Whether you require gait retraining resulting from a neurological condition or an athlete trying to get back on the field, the AlterG can be a game changer. It works by reducing gravity’s impact on your body, offloading between 0-80% of your body weight!!
Another form of body-weight support walking that utilizes a harness to offload your body in order to improve your gait and balance, reduce pain or decompress your spine. It enhances your ability to achieve proper gait mechanics and retrain your body to move with more freedom and control. Through the harness support, it also allows for decompression of the spinal column, thereby reducing back pain and potential nerve impingement (i.e. sciatica).
Balance, stabilization, postural control, weight bearing, sensory integration, fall risk screening, motor control… the Biodex can address a number of different training components all in one machine! It provides real-time feedback and objective data to track progress and provide results about performance. From MS to concussion to athletics, the Biodex is able to help recover stability and control following disease or injury.
“Because of harnessed walking, I am more confident when walking and moving. I move faster and easier.”
