Medstar Monday - Week 5

AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill

The AlterG is a special treadmill that uses NASA built technology that reduces impact on the lower body. Patients are
outfitted in shorts that zip into a weight reduction chamber. The chamber is filled with air to regulate the percentage of
body weight acting on the lower extremities. The AlterG can be used as a training tool for healthy athletes to safely start
an aerobic fitness program. It can also be used to reinforce movement patterns and strengthen muscles after an injury
without compromising the healing process. MedStar Health offers AlterG machines at many locations throughout the
area and it can be utilized through insurance or self-pay, depending on the number of minutes used.
