When you hear the term “anti gravity technology,” many people conjure up images of Buck Rogers and the Jetsons flying around the sky.
Or perhaps you think of NASA and the space program, with the astronauts learning how to deal with zero gravity on the moon?
Anti gravity technology is not a science of the future, however. It’s something that we can benefit from right now.
Anti Gravity Technology Provides Help to Deal With Today’s Busy Lives
“Anti gravity” means against, or opposite to gravity.
What that means for us is that there exists technology today that can help us to deal with aches, pains, and the rigors of daily life that are aggravated by gravity.
For example, do your feet hurt when you get home in the evening because you’ve been on them all day? Does your back ache from repetitive movements or stress? Do you feel pain from muscle stress and tension?
This state-of-the-art technology allows us to take advantage of innovations in modern science. We can use the technology to reduce wear and stress on muscles and joints as we go about our daily activities.
Anti Gravity Technology Shoes
One of the major benefits of this technology is anti gravity shoes. These shoes are not NASA-type equipment that makes you weightless, but they are footwear designed to reduce wear and stress on feet, muscles and joints.
Those who suffer from plantar fasciitis have found particular benefits from this new technology footwear.
Many shoes that use this technology actually have springs built into the heel, which reduces the impact on the heel as you take a step.
Picture a trampoline. When you jump on the trampoline, the tramp absorbs the downward-impact force when you come down. Then the tramp provides an upward-motion force to propel you up. This same technology is the basis for anti gravity shoes.
These shoes are designed to lessen the impact of each downward step, so that the spring absorbs – and lessens – the impact of your heel hitting the ground. Then the spring provides an upward motion propelling force, literally “pushing” your heel off the ground.
Many who have dealt with heel pain from plantar fasciitis have found relief with shoes using this technology.
Anti gravity technology shoes are available for both men and women, although women’s shoes are more easily found. Prices for this type of footwear varies from $40 to as much as $200.
Anti Gravity Technology Inversion Tables and Boots
Another technology innovation is inversion tables and boots.
These items allow you to hang upside down, or at least at an inverted angle, providing relief from back and joint pain and reducing stress on muscles.
As we age gravity works against us, pulling at our spines and stressing muscles, joints and vertebrae.
This is the reason Grandma is now much shorter than she was as a girl, because gravity has literally pulled her spine down, compressing discs and vertebrae.
Anti gravity technology inversion tables and boots allow you to hang with your feet up, relieving stress on compressed discs and vertebrae, and allowing the spine to stretch.
It won’t completely reverse the effects of aging, but if you suffer from chronic back pain, you may want to consider an inversion table. My husband has one and finds that it really helps him deal with his back pain. He has a bulging disc, and hanging from the inversion table allows the disc to work its way back into place between the vertebrae.
Many people swear by their inversion tables for back pain relief.
An inversion table can be purchased for as little as $100 (Kmart and Walmart both have a simple table at this price), or you can spend as much as several hundred dollars if you choose.
Treadmills and Chairs
Current technology includes chairs and treadmills that also help with the stress of daily life.
The chairs look like modern recliners and allow the user to lean back, lifting his feet above his heart. This type of recliner reduces stress on the spine, improves circulation, and relieves muscles tension.
Some anti gravity chairs also provide stimulating massage.
Prices for this type of stress-free recliner range from $300 to $500.
Anti gravity treadmills have been designed to help with running and jogging activities. The treadmill actually lifts the runner up from his hips, much like sitting in a baby’s swing with your legs hanging below. The treadmill allows the jogger to run, but holds most of his weight up off his legs.
These type of treadmills are extremely expensive, and prices can be in the $50,000 to $75,000 range. Professional athletes are typically who will use this treadmill because it reduces stress on legs and joints.
As you can see, we don’t have to wait for the future to reap the benefits of anti gravity technology!
