Running News: Weightless Injury Rehab

Running or other sport injuries happen to both the pro and the weekend sports warrior far too often than any of them would like. Rehab is often painful and difficult but a new advancement in sports medicine/rehab looks to change that. The The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill allows an injured athlete to reduce the load and impact on legs and joints by providing a supported weightless experience. By reducing the amount of weight that an injured athlete bears on their joints and limbs, more intense training can be undertaken to gain more strength while still healing and preventing more injuries. The AlterG uses air pressure to provide a lifting force that gently supports the body to provide precise weight reduction.
