Amongst reduced gravity simulators, the lower body positive pressure treadmill is emerging as an innovative tool for both rehabilitation and fundamental research purposes as it allows running while experiencing reduced vertical ground reaction forces. While injuries and repairs to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) lead to functional deficits in the form of diminished proprioception of the knee joint, unweighted running may thus help in the rehabilitation process in ACL injured and repaired patients.
