AlterG, leader in medical and sports technology and emerging in the health and wellness space, today announced the appointment of Mr. Sanjay Gupta as CEO. Mr. Gupta comes to AlterG from healthcare powerhouse Johnson & Johnson, where he held both domestic and international positions with a focused emphasis of serving healthcare professionals and consumers with unique solutions for their unmet needs to create differentiated value related to wellness and disease management. 

Mr. Gupta brings 17-years of experience from Johnson & Johnson, where he rose through the ranks with cross functional experience in general management, marketing, sales, operations and new business development; both domestically and overseas. Most recently, Mr. Gupta served as President of Johnson & Johnson’s Wellness & Prevention division, where he integrated two acquisitions – HealthMedia and The Human Performance Institute – into a new division focused on developing solutions for health, wellness and disease management that improved healthcare outcomes and reduced overall cost of care touching over 40 million covered lives. 

During his tenure in this role, Mr. Gupta achieved tremendous success through restructuring of the core businesses and the creation of key public and private partnerships with Fortune 100 companies, health plans, and integrated delivery networks. Mr. Gupta’s success as well as his deep knowledge and expertise in wellness and disease management is an ideal fit for AlterG’s strategic focus.

AlterG develops life-changing products that are reinventing physical rehabilitation and exercise, with the goal of empowering people to achieve and sustain healthy and active lives. The company’s anti-gravity technology, developed at NASA, enables users to walk or run with reduced impact and pain when they might not have otherwise been able to exercise at all. The technology represents not only a paradigm shift for people recovering from injury, surgery, or neurological conditions, but it’s also a powerful enablement tool for those limited by arthritis, obesity, diabetes or otherwise compromised health. AlterG’s products represent an exciting new frontier in exercise as a solution for some of the biggest challenges in healthcare today.

Ross Jaffe, M.D., Managing Director of Versant Ventures and an AlterG board member, said; “The board and the executive management team is delighted to have Sanjay join the team. His strong experience in developing and optimizing wellness and disease management opportunities, and his understanding of how to be successful in dynamic markets, make him an ideal leader for a category-leading innovator like AlterG.” Jaffe added, “Mr. Gupta brings a wealth of management and data analysis skills to the company, helping to continue to elevate AlterG and our wellness and disease prevention focus.”
