Originally conceived by Dr. Robert Whalen to design effective exercise regimens for NASA's astronauts, Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology has been adapted by AlterG for use in training and rehabilitation. Cleared by the FDA in 2008, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a medical device that can be used for:
- Rehabilitation of lower extremity injuries
- Treatment of neurological conditions
- Weight reduction
- Great West Health Care
- Aerobic conditioning
- General training to combat the diseases of aging
The NormaTec MVP ("Most Valuable Pump") is an FDA-cleared, state-of-the-art Pneumatic Compression Device. Multi-segment inflatable boots or sleeves are placed around the limbs and rhythmically inflated and deflated to carefully prescribed pressures. Stagnant fluid in the affected limb is promptly mobilized via the patented Peristaltic Pulse pneumatic waveform.
The Optojump utilizes the latest in technology to analyze gait and motion. It collects numerical data in real-time for gait, running, and jump tests that can be viewed immediately. The easy to read report displays all data, and asymmetries between the two legs are highlighted instantly. This data can help identify and evaluate any distortions in motion, which will help us properly treat any imbalances you may have. This technology can benefit athletes in sports like running, track and field, soccer, football, volleyball, basketball, baseball among others.
