Orthopedic Physical Therapy Technology

AlterG M300

This anti-gravity treadmill allows you to reduce your body weight by up to 80%. The unique unweighting technology provides the opportunity to walk or run while limiting the impact on joints and protecting healing tissue. As a result, you can concentrate on building strength and coordination, rather than focusing on discomfort or fear of falling. The AlterG is useful for individuals with a variety of conditions, including low back pain, plantar fasciitis, stress fractures, tendonitis and degenerative joint disease, as well as those recovering from surgery.

HydroWorx® 750 Series™ Pool

The HydroWorx aquatic therapy pool is ideal for advanced recovery from pain and injury, with technology including an underwater treadmill, resistance therapy jet technology and multi-angle video capabilities. Aquatic therapy minimizes impact on the joints and allows for faster functional movements, which can be particularly helpful in cases of post surgical pain/stiffness, joint replacement, sports injury (ACL & rotator cuff), chronic or acute back pain, foot or ankle injury, and pre-surgical or sport-specific strengthening.


Valedo technology helps to improve core stability and back range of motion. The virtual reality environment increases relevance for the user and immediate spatial feedback assists in improving movement patterns.
