Bowling Green, KY (PRWEB) March 31, 2014
ProRehab’s Bowling Green clinic is pleased to announce the installation of the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill, a revolutionary technology that is often used by professional athletes to continue training stress-free while recovering from injury.
The treadmill, which was installed at the clinic on March 25, 2014, uses technology created by NASA to enable faster rehabilitation and safer conditioning while removing up to 80% of the weight normally included in these activities. The AlterG’s pressurized enclosure provides counterforce to a person’s weight, greatly reducing the impact force to the musculoskeletal system.
“We’re incredibly excited to be offering this innovative and unique technology to our patients,” said Bethany Richerson, PT, DPT, OCS and Bowling Green Clinic Manager. “We’re constantly striving to get our patients back on the move more quickly and effectively. This treadmill provides us with a wonderful opportunity to do just that and we’re looking forward to seeing how our patients benefit from the AlterG.”
