World’s First Anti-Gravity Treadmill and it is FDA approved
Alter-G G-Trainer is the treadmill from the future. Just zip yourself up inside the treadmill start the compressor which creates a high pressure zone and starts to compensate for your body weight. With increments of 1% it is adjustable upto 80% of your bodyweight. Your body movement is unrestricted so you can exercise on the treadmill naturally. The Alter-G G-Trainer is FDA approved for medical uses in rehabilitation after lower extremity injury or surgery, aerobic conditioning, weight control, gait training for neurological conditions, and strengthening and conditioning for older patients.
“The physical lifting force generated by the G-Trainer comes from a difference in air pressure around the user’s body. Normal environmental air pressure is approximately 15psi. The maximum amount of air pressure used in the G-Trainer, if the user chooses to reduce effective body weight at the maximum 80%, is 16.5psi, so the difference is very slight. At the maximum air pressure, the user experience feels similar to the pressure against your feet if you were standing in waist-high water, but without the resistance or movement of water.”
The video after the jump will give you a better idea on the working.
