Alter G® Therapy
Fort Worth Physical Therapy is proud to offer Alter G® training for patients undergoing rehabilitation or preventative training. The Alter G® machine is a high-tech, low-impact treadmill that uses precisely-tuned air pressure to reduce the impact of walking or running. It’s unique unweighting technology allows patients to exercise with a full range of motion while their body is still going through normal healing processes.
Alter G® Anti-Gravity Treadmill® Training
Unlike any other weight & impact-augmenting pieces of recovery equipment, the Alter G® is remarkably precise, allowing patients to exercise at anywhere between 20 and 100 percent of their body weight. Patients compare it to running on air, and those recovering from serious lower-extremity pain are able to build strength at much earlier stages than ever before. In fact, the comprehensive weight controls give our physical therapists the ability to slowly adjust a patient’s body weight until they say they are pain-free.
Benefits of Alter G® Therapy Include:
Rehabilitating After Lower-Extremity Surgery
Training Through An Injury
Reduced Impact Training & Conditioning
Gait Training For Neurologic Patients
Weight Control & Reduction
Strength & Conditioning For Older Patients
