AlterG – Anti Gravity Treadmill
At Edge Physical Therapy HQ , the Alter G Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a groundbreaking piece of equipment used to reintroduce walking and/or running to patients with conditions such as: ACL repairs, total hip replacements, Achilles tendon repair, and essentially any lower body dysfunction.
