AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill Available at Koester Pavilion

Troy, OHIO (November 17, 2017) – Koester Pavilion is pleased to announce continued patient rehabilitation success with the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill. Koester Pavilion is the only skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility in Miami County to offer the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill, ideal for geriatric patients recovering from neurologic and orthopedic-related injuries and surgeries.

The Anti-Gravity Treadmill’s NASA-patented, precise, unweighting technology allows patients to rehabilitate while reducing the risk of further injury, enabling faster healing. Patients can:

  • Reduce body weight up to 80%
  • Rehabilitate lower extremity injuries with less pain and impact
  • Improve mobility, strength and safety for those with neurological conditions
  • Reduce stress on joints and muscles
  • Ambulate with less stress on the cardiovascular system, benefiting those with COPD

The unique unweighting capabilities of the Anti-Gravity Treadmill allow patients to move rehabilitation forward by walking with reduced to no pain, while maintaining a normal gait. The treadmill reduces stress on joints and injured areas of the lower body, and gives patients the confidence and ability to walk longer and recover faster with less pain.

“This is a great option available for our patients to help them get back on their feet and on the road to recovery faster,” said Amanda Spitler, COTA/L, Koester Pavilion Therapy Program Manager.
