We offer a cutting-edge treadmill for seniors, which is beneficial for all parties involved.

There are numerous benefits of implementing a senior wellness and mobility program that is comfortable and safe. It can inhibit or postpone bone loss, diabetes and heart issues. It can also reduce arthritis pain, anxiety, and depression. It also prevents functional decline which allows for independence in essential activities of daily living, such as walking, bathing, dressing, getting up from a chair, and using the bathroom.
For the first time, elderly conditioning and mobility can be easily monitored and progress verified with the AlterG.
The most needed exercise areas:
- Endurance - walking strengthens muscles and improves the health of the heart and circulatory system
- Strengthening - increase muscle tissue mass and decrease age-related muscle atrophy
- Range of Motion – keep the body flexible and maintain good joint health
- Balance – reduces the likelihood of falls by training in a controlled environment
“We love our AlterG. It serves our population perfectly. It gives us the opportunity to have our clients walk distances and at a pace they wouldn’t dream of. It doesn’t cure the common cold, but it sure cures the common knee or hip pains!”
