AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill is available at Rehab Unlimited- Harrisburg and Rehab Unlimited-Logan Park.
Rehab Unlimited now has two locations with the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill. Logan Park and Harrisburg Rehab Unlimited locations utilize the AlterG to allow patients to walk sooner during the rehabilitation process; by dramatically reducing their weight. The AlterG is a state of the art unweighting treadmill which allows patients to reduce their body weight by up to 80% while the patient walks. The revolutionary medical rehabilitation treadmill, AlterG, promotes full, unrestricted movement, using patented NASA anti-gravity technology.
The key benefits of AlterG are:
- Exercising on as little as 20% of total body weight minimizes joint stress and pain
- Rehabilitation of lower extremity injuries
- Aerobic conditioning
- Weight loss
- Treatment of neurological conditions
- Training which combats the diseases of aging
Abbie Beer, PTA, at Rehab Unlimited in Harrisburg has taken five courses to advance her knowledge of the benefits of the AlterG. Abbie received her certifications for AlterG Orthopedics, AlterG and Neurologic Disorders, AlterG Geriatric, and AlterG Weight Loss. Her goal was to become more educated on the advantages of using the Anti-Gravity Treadmill for the rehabilitation process for her patients.
