Gravity Differential Technology Developer Adding Industry Advisors and

Channel Partner

MENLO PARK, Calif., Sept. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Alter-G, Inc., developers of the G-Trainer anti-gravity treadmill, today announced advisor relationships with world-renowned industry experts and an expanded partnership with Woodway, a standards-setting treadmill manufacturer.

Alter-G's anti-gravity treadmill, the G-Trainer, enables users to reduce their effective body weight during exercise and has caught the interest of industry experts, including:

-- Amol Saxena, M.D., Doctor of Podiatric Medicine, Palo Alto Medical

Foundation's Sports Medicine

-- James Stray-Gundersen, M.D., Director of Performance Enhancement, The

Cooper Institute

-- Marc Guillet, Head of Physical Therapy, Palo Alto Medical Foundation

and Founder, Agile Physical Therapy

-- Eric Waters, Head Trainer, Washington Wizards

Dr. Saxena has treated dozens of Olympians (including gold medal winners) and Olympic Trials qualifiers, numerous professional athletes, and many top high school athletes. "The G-Trainer is a valuable tool for my patients to maintain their competitive edge and conditioning during injury recovery and rehabilitation," said Dr. Saxena. "From weekend warriors to world-class athletes, Alter-G can really make a difference."

Dr. Stray-Gundersen has a long history of working with world-class athletic teams, including Olympians and top running organizations such as Nike's Oregon Project. "The G-Trainer represents a significant opportunity to advance the study of body mechanics and physiotherapy protocols," said Dr. Stray-Gundersen.

"The G-Trainer is the first truly significant and revolutionary product to come along in years," said Guillet. "It ensures maximum conditioning benefits and easily transitions our post-operative and post-injury clients to full function." Guillet specializes in working with injured athletes in over 35 different sports.

The Advisory Board will focus on gathering data on use, application, and efficacy of protocols. This will include practical studies on oxygen uptake and heart rate measurements at different percentages of body weight reduction while someone is running at a constant speed and grade, as well as other studies on training through various lower extremity injuries and conditioning programs. This will provide important information about the metabolic cost of reducing the force of impact and the effective use of the G-Trainer in many practical applications.

"Alter-G is committed to a strong relationship with the community and marketplace," said Jack Irving, vice president of sales and marketing, Alter- G. "Our advisors and our initial partner, Woodway, represent the first stage in our commitment."

To better serve the marketplace and expand distribution, Alter-G is expanding their relationship with Woodway to include them as a channel sales partner. Woodway will sell an Alter-G branded G-Trainer through its direct sales team. Woodway offers high-end, custom-designed and hand-built treadmills for fitness training, rehabilitation, and human performance. The G-Trainer is customized around Woodway's Desmo model.

"The G-Trainer represents an important extension to our product offerings. We're proud to be the treadmill platform which Alter-G uses, but now we're excited about being able to offer the G-Trainer directly to our customers," said Eric Weber, vice president of sales for Woodway USA.
