Right to left, Gerry Cabot works through a therapy session with Paul Burns a physical therapist at The Life Center of Estero on their new AlterG anti-gravity treadmill.  The AlterG anti-gravity treadmill uses air in a pressure-controlled chamber to slightly lift the patient releasing the pressure and strain off the joints while exercising.  The Life Center of Estero first received the AlterG anti-gravitational treadmill in December 2010 and has had more than 50 patients use the machine as part of their treatment.  The technology was brought in to take the place of aqua technology that is bulkier and requires patients to get into their swimsuits. Manuel Martinez/Staff
