The Benefits of an Anti-Gravity Treadmill
This unweighting treadmill makes recovery faster and more accessible for patients who are limited in their abilities. For instance, this tool allows for more comfortable exercise. The weightlessness felt on the anti-gravity treadmill takes pressure away from the joints, which means that patients who are overweight may have a much easier and more comfortable time working out.
One study by Shantanu Patil et. al. (2) concluded that the use of an anti-gravity treadmill provides “controlled decrease of the joint forces and might be an effective tool in the rehabilitation of patients following lower‐extremity surgery.” Whether joints are under stress from surgery or poor joint health, the Boost Anti-Gravity Treadmill provides an easier and more comfortable way to exercise.
Because the treadmill makes exercise easier for all ages and body types, it has an added benefit of being able to delay the progression of osteoarthritis with movement and physical therapy. In general, movement is easier with the anti-gravity treadmill. Users will experience a higher range of motion, and will notice that it takes much less effort to run. The experience is safe and controlled, which adds to the comfort and also decreases the risk of injury or reinjury. Elderly patients, patients struggling with weight, and anyone who has issues with fatigue and immobility can finally enjoy the benefits of exercise with weightless running on the anti-gravity treadmill.
Even patients who are not limited in their strength and mobility can take advantage of this rehabilitation tool at MOTUS Specialists Physical Therapy. Professional athletes or weekend warriors who have suffered an injury can use the anti-gravity treadmill to enjoy immediate, pain-free exercises post trauma, thus recovering faster.
The Boost Anti-Gravity Treadmill exceeds the advantages of other unweighted rehabilitation tools by providing a workout that does not limit range of motion. The chamber is spacious and uncombersome, and the upper body is left in the open, so you can run with natural movements and thoroughly condition your muscles.
