AlterG’s technology, developed by NASA and tested by Nike, is different from other fitness and therapeutic equipment because it defies gravity by applying a lifting force to the body that reduces weight on the lower extremities. Unlike other unweighting methods, the AlterG enables athletes to train with their natural gait and rhythm, and significantly shortens the time required for patients to recover from injury or surgery.
“We have had our PRO200 since 2008, the first in the NorthEast to utilize this amazing technology” says Michael Silva, MS, PT, CSCS – Owner of FOUNDATIONperformance. “Our clinical team here at Fp has been using the AlterG with injured weekend warriors, post operative patients, elite athletes, and everyone in between. Whether we are getting someone walking again after surgery or maximizing athletic performance levels it has been amazing.” FOUNDATIONperformance has the only PRO200 available to the public in New England.
AlterG’s technology allows a person to train longer, minimize stress on the joints, and exercise at a higher level of intensity. This type of therapy is also beneficial to medical patients with arthritis, lower extremity stress fractures, joint problems, ankle sprains, meniscus tears, post-operative rehabilitation, and many other conditions.
