Clinical studies show that these amazing treadmills can help decrease ground reaction forces in walking and running. Professional Teams and Elite Medical Facilities are using the AlterG to revolutionize recovery programs.

Recently, the University of Alabama announced they are using AlterG to provide less stress to the lower body when athletes are rehabbing. They used this treadmill last year when then running back Eddie Lacy had a toe injury. In the video below, Alabama's Assistant Athletic Director for Sports Medicine Jeff Allen explains "what this allows us to do is take a guy and run them at a lower percentage of their body weight. Theoretically, if you weigh 200 pounds, I can put you in here and set this to run you at what it would feel like to run at 50 pounds."

Kobe Bryant is also an avid user of this anti-gravity treadmill. For his torn achilles he suffered last season, AlterG provides a safe platform for him to repair the strength in his foot. Kobe has posted a recent video on Instagram of him running on the AlterG machine, and knowing Kobe's mentality, he will use this platform rigorously to prepare him for the season. Imagine if he is ready for the opening game, AlterG would receive a great case study, superb marketing from a high profile athlete, and the support from Laker nation!

"I think the AlterG is the best piece of equipment made for running in the last 30 years"

-Alberto Salazar, Winner of the Boston Marathon
