Anti-gravity Training and Rehabilitation

Recovering from an injury, or preventing one from happening, is on every athlete’s mind and the Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill can assist you in regaining, maintaining and developing fitness during recovery.

Anti-gravity training and rehabilitation assists athletes by lessening the impact or loading on lower body extremity joints and muscles while shortening the healing process by overcoming weight bearing restrictions due to injury and overuse.  Alter-G can also be used to as an adjunct of your training program to get miles in with less impact.

Your trainer or therapist will use the Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill to:

  • set benchmarks to measure and motivate progress
  • help you maintain cardiovascular fitness and strength while training or healing
  • allow you to use normal gait mechanics
  • provide instant feedback for weight bearing symmetry, cadence, step length symmetry and stance time symmetry

Anti-Gravity training and rehabilitation is offered at MEDSPORT located in the Ann Arbor Ice Cube.
