Menlo Park, CA (Vocus) March 6, 2008
Alter-G, Inc., developers of the G-Trainer anti-gravity treadmill, today announced that Saint Francis Memorial Hospital’s acclaimed Center for Sports Medicine is the latest medical facility to obtain a G-Trainer. This follows the G-Trainer’s recent announcement of FDA clearance as a medical device. Alter-G invites the public to see the G-Trainer in downtown San Francisco March 7 and 8 along with physicians and other clinicians, some of who will also be attending the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons conference.
“I believe the G-Trainer will positively improve how rehabilitation is approached for a broad spectrum of injuries,” said Dr. Susan Lewis, orthopedic surgeon at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital Center for Sports Medicine and CEO of Chizam. “At Saint Francis we want to offer the latest technological advances to benefit our patients, and the G-Trainer offers faster recovery by being able to adjust the rehabilitation program gradually as the patient improves.”
The Center for Sports Medicine at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital, where patients “get treated like the pros,” is one of the countries most prestigious treatment and research facilities for sports medicine, offering care for every type of sports medicine concern. With the G-Trainer they expect to see faster and more effective recovery and lower overall costs for patients. The center plans to prescribe the G-Trainer for patients as well as conduct studies on its effectiveness.
Orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, and other clinicians are invited to see and try the G-Trainer March 7th and 8th, 11am to 8pm at Jillian’s Restaurant, 101 4th (at the Metreon), San Francisco, CA. Dr. Lewis encourages clinicians to stop by to see how their patients and medical facility can benefit from the G-Trainer.
