Action Physio welcomes the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill

The first of it's kind in the Midlands, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill allows you to rehab from surgery or train through injury, without pain. Built in Silicon Valley using NASA technology, this unique medical device has proven to be extremely successful in the areas of rehabilitation (sports and medical) and obesity. Utilized by top Olympic athletes and Premiership soccer teams, this highly effective treatment is now available at Action Physio!

The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill gives you the opportunity to rehab from surgery, or train through injury, without pain. AlterG's unique unwighting technology reduces the impact of walking or running, while your body goes through the normal healing process.

Precise unweighting allows you walk or run at anywhere between 20 to 100 percent of your body weight.
Easily select your reduced body weight where movement becomes pain free
Give yourself the opportunity for a smooth progression back to full recovery
Lower the impact on your joints and muscles during exercise
Fun and easy to use, run or walk like you're on the moon!

Imagine Running 20Kg Lighter

The first time you try the AlterG you won't believe how much fun it is to exercise at a lower body weight. People who have used the AlterG say it's like "running on air", and "it's s much more fun than normal running" and "you have to try it to believe it!" The AlterG can be used in a variety of ways and provide a broad range of benefits, such as:

Rehabilitating after surgery of the lower extremity (hit, knee, ankle or foot)
Training through an injury
Reduced impact training and conditioning
Gait training fr neurologic patients
Weight control and reduction
Strength and conditioning for older patients

Easy and Fun To Use

AlterG is easy to use, with simple, but important enhancements beyond a traditional treadmill.

First, you step onto the Anti-Gravity Treadmill, raise the enclosure to your waist and then zip into the air chamber that surrounds your lower body.
Next, press start and the AlterG measures your weight.
Now, push the + or - buttons on the control panel to select the body weight you wish to exercise at.
The air chamber inflates around your lower body and the positive air pressure gently lifts you off the treadmill to the body weight setting you selected (for example: 80%).
You can then select the speed and incline of the treadmill and begin exercising.
