“The issuance of the ‘656 patent helps us takes yet another step in securing our company as the clear authority for utilizing air-based unweighting for a variety of applications,” said Charles Remsberg, chief executive officer for AlterG. “It’s incredibly gratifying to look at our product development pipeline and know that we not only have a solid base of intellectual property to start with, but multiple pending patents as well to help further our mission of helping people defy their physical limitations for lifelong mobility.”

Anti-Gravity Treadmill technology by AlterG uses multiple patented technologies to enable unprecedented unweighting therapy and athletic training capabilities. A pressurized “anti-gravity” chamber counteracts gravitational forces, gently adjusting body weight from 100% to as little as 20% with unparalleled precision in 1% increments and unrestricted movement not available in any other form of body weight supported therapy. This uniform lifting force reduces impact, pain, and effort thereby reducing barriers to mobility. All while supporting normal gait and balance – and encouraging full, free range of motion in a fall safe environment.
