JAG Physical Therapy Installs AlterG Treadmill

Print ArticleEmail Article
WEST ORANGE, NJ -- JAG Physical Therapy announced Sept. 27 that it has installed the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill, a treadmill using NASA-based anti-gravity technology, in their facilities in West Orange and Warren, NJ.

AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmills reduce the impact on the body to enable faster rehabilitation, safer conditioning for the geriatric population, and weight loss. AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmills are designed for lower body injury and surgery rehabilitation, aerobic conditioning, weight control and reduction, sport-specific conditioning programs, neurologic retraining, and geriatric strength and conditioning.

JAG Physical Therapy will use the AlterG to create specialized programs for triathletes, marathon runners, arthritis patients and post-operative patients. With the AlterG, patients can run and walk without bearing their entire weight, reducing the impact on the body to optimize rehabilitation and physical therapy outcomes. Its Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology applies a lifting force to the body that reduces weight on the lower extremities and allows precise unweighting -- up to 80% of a person's body weight, so people can find exactly where the pain stops and natural movement feels good again.

"This treadmill is a breakthrough in enabling our patients to get back to their lives as quickly and effectively as possible," said John Gallucci, Jr., president and owner of JAG Physical Therapy.
