The Anti-Gravity Treadmill’s bodyweight support system provides a number of benefits for patients. It can help decrease pain, protect healing tissue and restore normal range of motion. By using the bodyweight support system of the Anti-Gravity Treadmill, patients can begin progressive loading safer and sooner. Earlier activity for patients has been shown to reduce complications and improve outcomes. 

Once the patient has completed the calibration process, and set the Anti-Gravity Treadmill to their desired bodyweight level, they can begin performing a number of exercises. Depending on the condition, patients can perform weight shifting exercises, single limb stance activities, squats, lunges, heel raises, balance exercises, and plyometrics while using the Anti-Gravity Treadmill during rehabilitation. 

Watch Jacon demonstrate a wide range of closed-kinetic chain exercises that are possible on the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill.
