Versailles Health Care Center is excited to announce the addition of the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill. Physical therapy and the AlterG can get patients back to doing what they love! The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill controls gravity though air pressure to provide a gentle and comfortable lifting force that reduces a patient’s body weight by as much as 80% so the patient can walk freely and easily. With its unique unweighting capabilities, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill allows patients to move their rehabilitation and therapy forward by:
- Reducing stress on joints and injured areas of the lower body
- Giving patients the confidence and ability to run or walk longer and recover faster with less pain
- Allowing limited weight-bearing individuals to start therapy sooner, reducing length of stay
According to Shannon Condon, Facility Rehab Director, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a welcomed addition to The Rehab Clinic at Versailles Health Care Center. “We are so excited to offer our patients this unique and cutting edge technology for improved walking and running. We feel that this is an opportunity for many in our local communities to elevate their physical therapy experience.”
