If you've suffered an injury or gone through surgery, you know the recovery process can be long and challenging. Whether you're a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, a senior citizen or a young competitor, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill can help optimize your treatment outcomes to get you back faster to the activities you love.
Why People Love The AlterG:
Patented NASA technology allows for precise partial weight bearing
Rehab and train like never before
Professional Teams and Elite Medical Facilities are using the AlterG to revolutionize recovery programs
The science of healing and art of training combine here at AlterG to give you back your health faster. That way, you can spend more time living your life, instead of fixing your body.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Originally conceived by Dr. Robert Whalen to design effective exercise regimens for NASA's astronauts, Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology has been adapted by AlterG for use in training and rehabilitation. Cleared by the FDA in 2008, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a medical device that can be used for:
Rehabilitation of lower extremity injuries
Treatment of neurological conditions
General training to combat the diseases of aging
Unweighting is achieved in the AlterG by using air in a pressure-controlled chamber to gently lift the user. Precise calibration using our patented technology allows for very specific unweighting from 100-20% of the users body weight in 1% increments. Something no other unweighting modality can do.
Clinical studies show that these amazing treadmills can help decrease ground reaction forces in walking and running. The restoration of normal gait mechanics is paramount to optimal recovery and can be accelerated by our patented unweighting technology.
Allow for the protection of healing tissue
Encourage range of motion
Earlier initiation of closed-kinetic chain activity.
Prevent disuse atrophy
Encourages more rapid return of motor control

'We have used the AlterG machine for returning some of our athletes from a wide range of lower limb injuries. We have benefited from the facilities and expertise that Dan Fivey has provided. We have had two lower limb fractures that we have been able to run earlier because of the modified weight bearing on the AlterG.'

'We have used the AlterG machine for last two seasons at Dan Fivey's studio helping us reach a play off final at Wembley and an exciting FA cup run that finished at Spurs. We have benefited from his equipment, facilities and expertise.
We have had a few injuries that we have been able to 'run 'earlier because of the AlterG treadmill. Those players returned to playing 3-5 weeks earlier than expected. The players also enjoy the benefits of his VibroGym machines.'

"Dan has provided an excellent service for a reasonable cost for us to use the AlterG treadmill at his studio. This has benefited the players of Oxford United FC to return to full fitness from injury in a more timely fashion."

'I first made contact with Dan 10 months ago after I had applied for my first London Marathon. I was overweight, unfit and had no idea where to start with any training. Dan encouraged me to believe in myself and was extremely patient during our training sessions, even at times when my body let me down with recurring injuries. I am now 2 stone lighter and successfully completed the Marathon in a time I am very proud of. I can truthfully say Dan has changed my life for the better, his commitment and determination is amazing. I will continue to train with Dan and would highly recommend him to anyone I know.''
