What is AlterG?
The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill supports your patients to walk or run in a safe, controlled and pain free environment, in order to maximise recovery or to help achieve training goals.
NASA technology reduces weight going through your patient’s body from between 20% and 100%, allowing them to work on the treadmill without bearing full weight on lower body injuries or surgical areas.
AlterG can also be used to aid weight loss for patients who experience pain or difficulty when exercising.
What are the benefits of AlterG?
• Rehabilitation with less stress to joints and muscles, without the need for crutches for protection
• Enhanced rehabilitation for joint replacement patients who use the treadmill shortly after surgery to aid movement and promote protected loading of joints
• Patients with some long term conditions can see benefits with walking that they find hard with normal gravity
• Allows patients to exercise pain free to aid weight loss, either pre-surgery or to improve general fitness and reduce obesity
Referrals and treatment programmes
At Premier Clinic patients are able to self-refer for AlterG treatment and do not require a GP or consultant referral.
All patients are required to complete a 60 minute induction to the AlterG with one of our team. This appointment allows us to assess your condition, discuss the recommended programme, set goals and trial the AlterG. Following the induction, one off sessions are available for 30 minutes. Alternatively packages are available where great savings can be made.
Our AlterG treadmill is an anti-gravity treadmill which provides cutting edge physical therapy exercise for training and rehabilitation. By quite literally taking the weight, it allows the user to perform normal treadmill activities without the pounding and the risks of joint stress and pain associated with a conventional treadmill.
AlterG can be fine-tuned to the user’s body weight, making it the ideal therapeutic exercise equipment for helping people of any age and condition to get back to fitness after surgery or injury.
Anti-gravity treadmill programmes are used to support treatments for a wide range of conditions, particularly involving:
