AlterG’s unique and patented unweighted rehabilitation treadmill technology allows patients to move with less pain during physiotherapy sessions whilst reducing the risk of further injury. The machine acts as both a rehab device and wellness tool that gets patients excited and motivated to continue using it for regular training. The AlterG provides Physiotherapists with an accurate tool to track patient progress, keeping them engaged during rehabilitation as well as being able to easily observe and analyse their patients range of movement.
- Easier entry and access
- Shorter step-up height for patient populations with difficulty ambulating
- Simpler and safer height adjustment and setup with our counterweighted, locking mechanism
The treadmill is ideal for physiotherapy clinics, rehabilitation facilities, gyms and wellness centres and is the perfect solution for patients looking to regain mobility, develop strength and fitness, and increase range of motion and natural movement – all while minimising stress on injuries.

“Since installing the treadmill we have noticed huge benefits to our patients. We found that there were stages of rehabilitation (early post fracture for example) where we couldn’t progress the patient as much as we would have liked because we didn’t want to overload the body. We can now do this gradually and effectively on the Anti-Gravity Treadmill.”
