The Orbiter is built and looks like a treadmill. The difference is that it has a suspended trampoline-like surface.
The trampoline surface is shock absorbing and supported from the sides instead of from below, causing the shock to be absorbed by the Orbiter and not the patient.
The shock is transformed into energy return by the suspension system of the Orbiter, allowing the legs to reach their natural extension by delivering the perfect amount of deceleration and acceleration no matter the size of the walker/runner or pace they are going.
The Orbiter has been clinically tested to help with the following conditions:
- Achilles tendon injury
- Back acute to chronic strains
- Ankle injuries and fractures
- Lumbar surgeries
- Anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions
- Arthroscopic knee repairs
- Stress fractures
- Knee reconstructions
- Range of motion problems
- Knee stability problems
- Shin splints
- Hip replacements
- Gait training
