AlterG Anti Gravity Treadmill

We are pleased to offer enhanced physiotherapy rehabilitation with the AlterG® Anti-gravity Treadmill®

We are pleased to offer enhanced physiotherapy rehabilitation with the AlterG® Anti-gravity Treadmill® 

The treadmill uses NASA technology to reduce weight going through the body from between 20 - 100% of body weight allowing patients to work on the treadmill without bearing full weight on lower body injuries or surgical areas.

The benefits include:

  • 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

Conditions that are likely to respond well to physiotherapy incorporating the AlterG®Anti-gravity Treadmill® include:

  • Knee and hip arthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Foot and ankle pain
  • Neurological conditions - including MS and Parkinson's Disease
  • Weight control and reduction
  • Strengthening conditions for older patients

Physiotherapy sessions including AlterG®Anti-gravity Treadmill® are competitively priced and include an initial physiotherapy session. Sessions could also be covered by insurance companies with a referral letter.

Packages and prices:

  • Initial 45 minute assessment - £65.00
  • 5 x 30 minute follow up appointments: £100

If more in-depth training or supervision is required, a follow up session would be advised at £40 per 30 minutes. All packages are to be paid for in advance and completed over a 3-6 month period. Minimum time per session is 30 minutes and can be booked in 15 minute blocks thereafter if more time is required.
