Run (or walk) On the Moon with Our Alter G Treadmill
Are you sick of that nagging joint pain in your knee? Are you ready to return to sport faster? Tired of the swelling in your ankles at the end of the day due to a previous ankle sprain? All of these problems can be resolved with the use of the Alter G Anti-Gravity Treadmill at Ivy Rehab in Hudsonville. The Alter G Treadmill is designed to unload these nagging joints or injuries to recover mobility, reduce pain, and enhance your overall wellness and function. It has been used to assist people of all ages and conditions, ranging from acute orthopedic injuries to chronic neurological conditions. It is designed to help in strengthening, balance, coordination, and endurance.
The Alter G Treadmill utilizes a differential pressure system which can unload your body weight down to 20%, by 1% increments. Unlike any other treadmill you have been on, the Alter G provides ultimate security while also allowing you to receive the cardiovascular benefit, without the fear of falling. While on the treadmill, your therapist can take you through various gravity eliminated exercises in addition to the running or walking.
At Ivy Rehab, the therapists utilize a VIA treadmill that provides video feedback and gait analytics for higher-level runners. The analytics include stride length, cadence, weight-bearing distribution, and even provides a spot for you to input your pain if needed. All of this information can then be emailed to your therapist or doctor for close tracking of each session.
