Alter-G Running

The Alter G is an injured runner’s best friend!

With a simple touch of a button, a runner can reduce bodyweight in 1% increments, down to that weight where one can effectively run without pain.

Alter G unweighting technology allows the individual to build run specific endurance without the pain and risk associated with full-weight impact on joints, bones, tendons, and muscles.


How does it work?

An air sealed cushion around a runner’s midsection uses air pressure to un-weight the runner – imagine a cork being pushed up through a wine bottle.  Meanwhile, the runner enjoys normal run range of motion – minus those pounds that the runner wishes to eliminate.

Who can benefit from running with Alter G technology?
