The purpose of this study was to study an unweighing effect of anti-gravity treadmill on balance during an early phase of knee post-operative recovery.
It is shown that unweighing during walking and running may reduce muscle activities measured by EMG and change muscle activation pattern (12-14).
The above process was repeated until the participant reached 0% unweighing
at which point the speed increased by 0.2 mph each session.

Biodex Medical Systems introduces the Unweighing System to offload patient weight and reduce stress on weight-bearing joints.
With a treadmill set at low speed, the Unweighing System design allows the therapist to assist by positioning the patient's feet and controlling the weight shift.
