The Alter G is an anti gravity treadmill and can be used instead of a regular treadmill for rehabilitation after bone and soft tissue related injuries. It is also a valuable rehabilitation tool after lower limb surgery.
It can be beneficial for weight-loss programs and for those who need to reduce strain through weight bearing joints, for example: when training for long distance events.
The function is based around a pressurized chamber, which you zip your lower body in to, allowing you to walk or run at pressures as low as 28% of your body weight.
Following an assessment by one of our physiotherapists and appropriate instruction, the Alter G treadmill can be used on a “pay as you go” basis and booked via our front desk or give the clinic a call.
