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

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.
