Knoxville's NHC HealthCare, Fort Sanders therapy department has gone high-tech with our new AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill. The world's first and only treadmill using NASA based anti-gravity technology has been installed to help patients in their short-term rehabilitation programs. With the AlterG, patients can run and walk without bearing their entire weight, reducing the impact on the body to optimize rehabilitation and physical therapy outcomes. The device uses precise calibration to reduce the patient's body weight down to 20% of their normal body weight in one percent increments. The unweighted physical therapy preserves natural body movement, helps with fall prevention and benefits a broad range of medical conditions. It is also used for those with lower extremity injury and/or surgery to assist in becoming mobile sooner.
