The treadmill works by having an air filled plastic bubble zipped around your waist to reduce the effect of gravity. We can manipulate the amount of pressure going through your legs by changing your body weight from 100% down to 20% depending on your functional level. This will significantly reduce the pressure on the joints in your legs and back while still strengthening the muscles and reducing any pain you may of had.
