Safe and Effective Weight Loss Treadmill
Changing the way the World Exercises
Jeff from Spaulding Physical Therapy talks about how the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill helped him reach his weight-loss goals by walking and running at a reduced bodyweight to lose 20 pounds.
He was taking both blood pressure and cholesterol medication when his doctor informed him that he needed more exercise. Jeff changed his diet and started running on a treadmill, but was unable to continue because his joints could not support his full bodyweight. After seeing a newspaper advertisement for Spaulding Physical Therapy’s Anti-Gravity Treadmill, Jeff reached out and soon began a weight loss program on the Anti-Gravity Treadmill that changed his life.
Jeff recently had total blood work done and for the first time in four years, the results have all been positive. So far, he has lost 20 pounds and six inches to his waist.
Weight loss programs on the Anti-Gravity Treadmill are individualized to each patient, but they seek to reduce an individual’s effective weight during exercise with the Anti-Gravity Treadmill. Using NASA-patented differential air-pressure unweighting technology, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill allows patients to experience reduced bodyweight by as much as 80 percent. Obesity is a common risk factor for osteoarthritis, but rehabilitation on the Anti-Gravity Treadmill reduces or eliminates osteoarthritis-induced pain during walking.
