Fremont, Calif-headquartered AlterG introduces the Via Anti-Gravity Treadmill, engineered with NASA-developed Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology that is able to unweight users to as little as 20% of their body weight.
The Via also features integrated Stride Smart gait analytics technology, which provides objective data regarding weight bearing symmetry, step length symmetry, stance time symmetry, cadence, and pain recording during therapy sessions.
Stride Smart’s gait analytics, video monitoring, pain recording, and pre-programmed therapy sessions are integrated into Via’s new intuitive touchscreen user interface, enabling clinicians to objectively assess the direct effects of unweighting on therapy in real time, per a media release from AlterG.
“The team at AlterG is dedicated to developing technology that inspires and empowers people to recover, maintain and enhance their physical function—for fitness, mobility and for health,” says Charles Remsberg, AlterG CEO, in the release. “I’m thrilled to share that the value we’ve built into the Via Anti-Gravity Treadmill helps further our mission by making this technology more effective, and more accessible than ever before.”
Three models are available: the Via 400 and 400M are designed for physical therapy and rehabilitation applications with top speeds of 12 miles per hour forward and 3 miles per hour backward. The Via 400X is designed for more intensive sports performance and athletic training applications, and reaches top speeds of 15 miles per hour forward, and 5 miles per hour in reverse.
