Promotion Physical Therapy recently added cuttingedge technology that helps their patients take a load off their bodies while rehabbing via treadmill. Their new AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill uses NASA-patented Differential Air Pressure “unweighting” technology, which reduces stress on the lower body by inflating an air chamber and allowing users to run while supporting as little as 20 percent of their actual body weight.
AlterG incorporates support, safety and stability and gives users the ability to get moving faster after post-trauma. According to Promotion experts, the anti-gravity therapy reduces recovery time from surgery or injury. It also sustains cardiovascular health during recovery and improves mobility, balance, muscle movement, and strength and coordination in everyone from patients suffering from stroke and Parkinson’s disease to those recovering from knee replacements and orthopedic injury.
The new anti-gravity treadmills can be found at Promotion Physical Therapy’s North Central location, 15614 Huebner Rd., Ste. 115.
