AlterG® at Summit Physical Therapy
Summit Physical Therapy in McMurray, PA, offers our patients the latest in innovation and technology. The AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill is breakthrough technology like no other and until now has been reserved for elite athletes and rock stars.
It allows patients to walk without bearing their entire weight, which reduces impact on the body to optimize rehabilitation and physical therapy outcomes. This NASA-based technology applies a lifting force to the body that reduces weight on the lower extremities and allows precise unweighting – up to 80 percent of a person’s body weight, so patients can find exactly where the pain stops and natural movement feels good again.
“Our AlterG® is the only one in the South Hills area. It has changed the way our patients respond to their therapy. We’ve seen faster recovery times on lower extremity rehabilitation and are glad we can provide this treatment to our patients.”
