Spotlight on Care

The AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill®

The AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill® is one of the many state-of-the-art pieces of equipment at Life Care Center of Cape Girardeau.

The AlterG® uses technology patented by NASA to apply a comfortable lifting force to the body, allowing unweighting of up to 80 percent of a user's body weight. This allows users to experience pain-free exercise and movement. In addition, the AlterG®'s design encourages proper gait by allowing users to watch their own feet on a camera. Because users are supported by the AlterG®, the risk of falling is removed from any exercise.

Stop by and see our AlterG® in action today!
