What are the Benefits of Microgravity Treadmills?
Air pressure alleviates impact, creating an environment for longer, safer, and more sustained, lower body movement. Boost microgravity treadmills allow the user to run or walk at anywhere from 100% to as low as 20% of their body weight, in 1% increments. By creating a higher air pressure around the lower body, a lifting force counteracts gravity during exercise. The way that Boost treadmills disperse this force across the entire lower body, means it is incredibly comfortable and gives the user a fast, strong, and pain-free experience while moving their body as they would normally when running or walking.
Microgravity treadmills are most commonly used for:
From post-surgery recovery to healing from stress fractures or lumbar disc herniation, microgravity technology offers a safe and effective way to keep the body moving without bearing load. Extended periods of recovery without any weight-bearing can result in repercussions including increased joint stiffness, as well as a loss of muscle mass, strength, and cardiovascular fitness. Training with microgravity technology can allow the user to:
- Return to running or walking sooner during recovery;
- Rehabilitate and regain fitness safely;
- Preserve muscle mass and cardiovascular fitness;
- Positively impact on mental health and confidence.
Elite athletes across a range of sports from distance running to football utilise microgravity training for improving fitness, overspeed training, and high-intensity sessions. With users able to reach up to 29km per hour, athletes can increase intensity without overloading the body and risking injury. Microgravity treadmills are sometimes paired with altitude training for increased cardiovascular benefits.
