You can walk and run without pain today at LifeMotion. Our revolutionary AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill™ system uses NASA technology to create an “unweighting” experience that allows you to experience a freedom of movement you might think impossible.
Rocket science at LifeMotion
Using NASA Differential Air Pressure technology, the AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill™ at LifeMotion allows us to gently “unweight” you in 1% increments to as much as 100%. This will enable you to enjoy low-impact, pain-free movement.
AlterG® is ideal for
- Injured athletes
- Anyone suffering a knee, ankle, leg, or foot injury
While AlterG® technology was originally developed for International Space Station astronauts, the benefit to you here on earth at LifeMotion is the ability to elevate your recovery gain strength and endurance.
How Does AlterG® work?
You’ll step into a pair of AlterG® shorts worn over your workout shorts or leggings. Then, you step inside the machine’s chamber, similar to a giant bubble. We then zip the AlterG® shorts to the chamber. Once you’re comfortable, we’ll calibrate the device to your individual needs and adjust the air pressure to support a selected percentage of your body weight. This creates a fall-safe environment which means you can now move with confidence as never before.
Ultimately, the experience is just like any treadmill—except for the unweighted part. That’s the benefit of AlterG® over alternatives like hydrotherapy or harness systems. AlterG® allows you to walk, run, and even perform exercises, helping you recover, maintain, and enhance your balance, strength, and mobility.
Because the sides of the AlterG® chamber are clear, we’re able to observe and monitor your mechanics. We maintain a clear view of your mobility via an HD camera mounted in the chamber. Meanwhile, AlterG® also provides real-time gait data. This immediate visual feedback helps you improve your experience and results.
Is AlterG® right for you?
Our goal in everything we do is helping you return to your full LifeMotion. That’s why we have the AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill™. Whether you’re recovering from an orthopedic injury or surgery, or you’re managing a neurological condition, chronic disease, or obesity while gaining strength and endurance, AlterG® at LifeMotion is the ideal tool to help you achieve your goals.
