ALTER-G INJURY MANAGEMENT

ALTER-G TREADMILL AT THE INJURY CLINIC

The Injury Clinic Physiotherapy offers the only AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill available to the general population in the Greater Geelong Region. It is often integrated into the management plan of clients with injuries to lower limb, inclusive of post-operative rehabilitation. By reducing body weight, load can be reduced and rehabilitation progressed more quickly.

HOW THE ANTI-GRAVITY TREADMILL WORKS

  • Uses air to comfortably and precisely unweight to as little as 20% of body weight in 1% increments.
  • Reduces impact and gravitational forces without compromising natural biomechanics.
  • Integrates gait analytics and live digital video monitoring for data-driven improvement.
  • Gait measures are provided in real time, allowing both assessment and feedback regarding: weight bearing; step length; stance time; cadence
  • Live video feed is also available

ALTER-G TREADMILL: WHAT TO EXPECT

The use of the Alter-G Treadmill may be suggested to you by your treating physiotherapist, or strength coach at The Injury Clinic. It is often integrated into injury management plans to prevent de-conditioning, allow progressive loading of tissues towards a return to pre-injury activity and reduce the mental frustration involved with being injured.

**If you are not currently a client of The Injury Clinic, you may still access the Alter-G, but you will require an initial consult with one of our Physiotherapists prior to using the Alter-G. This allows them to discuss your goals, aims, injury history etc. as well as instructing how to use, and care for the treadmill.
