Elite Athlete Podiatrist Talks About the G-Trainer at New York Athletic Club
Date:10/29/2007

Dr. Saxena, Joined by Shalane Flanagan, Discusses Benefits of the G-Trainer

for Elite Athletes

MENLO PARK, Calif., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Alter-G, Inc., developers of the G-Trainer anti-gravity treadmill, today announced that Dr. Amol Saxena, podiatrist to elite athletes, including Olympians, joined by noted professional runner Shalane Flanagan, will be giving a presentation at the New York Athletic Club (NYAC) about the benefits of using a G-Trainer for injury prevention and training through injury recovery. The event will take place on November 3, 2007 from 2pm to 4pm.

Dr. Saxena is a noted Podiatrist with the Palo Alto Medical Foundation's Sports Medicine Department and serves as a member of the U.S. Track and Field Sports Medicine medical staff who has worked with leading athletes including Gezahenge Abera, Shalane Flanagan, Stacy Dragila, Daniel Lincoln, Adam and Kara Goucher, and many others. He has long been a supporter of Alter-G and of using the G-Trainer. Saxena has prescribed the G-Trainer for elite athlete patients to continue training during injury recovery periods including Achilles surgery. In addition to Saxena's patients, professional football, basketball, and other sports organizations are also using the G-Trainer to help train during injury recovery and exercising athletes with chronic injury issues and those at high risk for future injuries, as well as a regular part of their training and conditioning routines.

"The G-Trainer allows my patients to safely train without aggravating injuries," said Saxena. "Athletes can suffer serious stress-related injuries when they push themselves too hard in training. Using the G-Trainer as a cross training tool eliminates so much of that risk. It let's runners add volume to their training schedules without the risk of impact related issues and when they are recovering from an injury, they don't have to sit still while they heal -- they can continue to run in
