Common questions about AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill

I’ve never heard of the AlterG before. Is this equipment common?

Not at all. Shyft was the first and remains one of the few clinics in Southwestern Ontario to possess an AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill.

How does it work?

Using a special pair of shorts, you are zipped into a chamber surrounding a treadmill. The machine generates enough air pressure to provide a measure of weightlessness, from 100% of your body weight to as little as 20% of your body. After the desired amount of weightlessness has been reached, you can walk or run as you would on a normal treadmill.
