AlterG M300 Trainer Takes the Strain Off Fragile Joints
Being able to drop half your body weight for a run can take quite a bit of strain off your joints. People recovering from surgery or injuries can use the AlterG (Fremont, California) treadmill to do just that and get a good workout for their lower extremities muscles.
Zero-Gravity Treadmill: Like Running in Space
Everyone knows you don’t need a treadmill in space, right? You just find a free section of the cylindrical wall of your spaceship and run around that, 2001-style. But when you get back to Earth, you need to exercise your atrophied muscles and get the blood pumping again. But how do you stand up on those weak and skinny legs? An anti-gravity treadmill, that’s how. And it isn’t just astronauts that can’t bear their own weight: injured athletes and accident victims also need to regain strength slowly. The answer is the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill M310, a newer, cheaper version of the company’s $70,000 machines.
Anti-Gravity Treadmill Almost Like Exercising on Mars
Want to get some exercise done in microgravity? Unless you travel to the International Space Station, exercise in a pool, or mount up on the pricy AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill, that was an impossibility until now. Expanding beyond the market of the super-rich and cash-awash pro sports teams, now AlterG will sell an anti-gravity treadmill for the merely rich, offering the $24,500 AlterG M300 for sale next month.
Lower price brings antigravity treadmill down to earth
We got our first close look at the AlterG antigravity treadmill at a health expo in San Francisco earlier this year, and at the time, the price was floating up there somewhere near the space station. But we’ve good news for those who like the idea of running like an astronaut: Fremont, Calif.-based AlterG on Monday plans to announce a more affordable model, the AlterG M300. The two treadmills in the M300 series deliver the same antigravity technology as AlterG’s pricey $75,000 P200 series, but at a third of the cost–$24,500 to $27,000.
