Share Article

AlterG®, creator of the original Anti-Gravity Treadmill® technology with patented Differential Air Pressure (DAP) announced today the introduction of the Fit, the most accessible air-based body weight support system to date. By re-imagining the design of the Anti-Gravity Treadmill from the ground up, AlterG delivers the easiest-to-use and most affordably priced air-based method for reducing ground reaction forces to help patients recover from orthopedic surgery or injury, neurological conditions, or to help build strength and endurance with less risk of injury.

The Fit 100, the most accessible air-based body weight support system to-date.
“We are incredibly excited to bring our patented form of Differential Air Pressure technology to market with an aggressive price and compelling new features that will deliver greater access to this technology for people that can benefit from the AlterG experience.” -- Charles Remsberg, CEO

Anti-Gravity Treadmill technology by AlterG uses patented DAP technology to enable unprecedented unweighting therapy and 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.

The Fit Anti-Gravity Treadmill leverages the same patented DAP technology in previous designs with some key improvements available at a lower cost to insure a broader range of audiences have access to the technology. The Fit design achieves a lower step-up height than ADA requirements for stairs paired with a new, open-back cockpit design with light and easy height adjustment and inseam set-point measurements to make getting in -- and getting moving -- simple. A magnetized, snap-up air chamber closure lays flat for ease of entry while new window design provides clinicians critical visual accessibility in a robust, functional design.

“We are incredibly excited to bring our patented form of Differential Air Pressure technology to market with an aggressive price and compelling new features that will deliver greater access to this technology for people that can benefit from the AlterG experience,” said Charles Remsberg, chief executive officer for AlterG. “This represents the most game-changing advancement in product design since the release of our 320 series in 2009 and we look forward to seeing the impact worldwide on the people we serve.”

The all-new Fit from AlterG is the most affordably priced Anti-Gravity Treadmill yet. In addition to easier patient ingress and egress, the Fit offers treadmill speeds of 0-12 miles per hour and body weight adjustment from 100% to as little as 40% for users 85 to 350 pounds.
