AlterG announces that the US Patent and Trademark Office has issued the company its 15th patent for various embodiments of, and components for, air pressure systems designed to unweight users, such as its Anti-Gravity Treadmill.
Patent number 10,004,656 covers multiple methods for mechanical design of air pressure systems and related technology, according to a company news release.
“The issuance of the ‘656 patent helps us takes yet another step in securing our company as the clear authority for utilizing air-based unweighting for a variety of applications,” says Charles Remsberg, chief executive officer for Fremont, Calif-based AlterG, in the release.
“It’s incredibly gratifying to look at our product development pipeline and know that we not only have a solid base of intellectual property to start with, but multiple pending patents as well to help further our mission of helping people defy their physical limitations for lifelong mobility.”
Anti-Gravity Treadmill technology by AlterG uses multiple patented technologies to enable unweighting therapy and athletic training capabilities. A pressurized “anti-gravity” chamber counteracts gravitational forces, gently adjusting body weight from 100% to as little as 20% with precision in 1% increments and unrestricted movement. This uniform lifting force is engineered to help reduce impact, pain, and effort, thereby reducing barriers to mobility. All while supporting normal gait and balance—and encouraging full, free range of motion in a fall-safe environment, per the release.
