Immobilization after injury/surgery results in muscle atrophy, joint stiffness, and hypersensitivity that can make restoring a normal gait/running pattern a challenge. Using the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill’s Differential Air Pressure support, patients can start walking at a fraction of their body weight, allowing them to decrease pain and focus on proper mechanics.
- Provides lower starting body weight for standing activities/gait training.
- Allows users to focus on proper gait/running mechanics in a pain-free environment.
- Gradually reintroduce load to lower extremities after gait/running pattern improves.
