The Alter G treadmill uses NASA’s Differential Air Pressure technology to comfortably support or “unweight” the user by as much as 80% of their body weight. This adjustable unweighting system can help to significantly and precisely reduce ground reaction forces, minimize discomfort and encourage movement, create a safe environment to work on walking or running technique, and allow for increased training volume without increased load.
Alter G users can expect to see a decrease in the load placed on the lower extremities to allow for a more comfortable experience with movement. This tends to lead to improvement in gait or running pattern, speed, or distance.
You are all AMAZING!!! Amber and Jolene are the best! When Abbie became injured 1 1/2 years ago in dance- something she loved to do, she went through 3 doctors, another physical therapists, many painful procedures and finally found a Dr. Hedlund who sent us to Hulst Jepsen where she was blessed with 2 amazing therapist and their staff! Abbie thought she may never dance again! She had many ups and downs in her therapy but no one ever gave up on her. They always listened to her and helped her do her best! Now she has finished her therapy, is starting dance again in a few weeks, is auditioning for the Nutcracker and her dance team at school!!!Holly
