AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill


JCH is dedicated to providing the best physical therapy services available to our service area.  Our AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a perfect example of this commitment.  Utilizing technology initally created by NASA, our treadmill allows for users to accurately adjust their body weight 1% at a time from their normal 100% down to minimum of 20%.  For comparison, if you were to walk on the moon, you'd weigh roughly 16% of what you do on Earth.  The AlterG's 20% allows for superior unweighing in a very trackable way.  It allows us to slowly progress individuals through varying levels of loading, leading to appropriate tissue strengthening.
