ALTER-G FOR POST OPERATIVE REHAB AT THE INJURY CLINIC PHYSIOTHERAPY

ALTER-G TREADMILL & REHAB PROGRAMS AT THE INJURY CLINIC

We’re proud to say that we provide clients with use of the only Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill in the Greater Geelong Region. At The Injury Clinic, we go above and beyond to ensure that everyone receives the best level of treatment possible. Our Alter-G Treadmill Training provides for exactly that and allows us to integrate this form of rehabilitation into the management plan of clients with lower limb injuries, inclusive of post-operative rehabilitation. The rehab treadmill works by reducing body weight, which inturn allows us to reduce load and improve rehabilitation times. 

HOW ALTER-G TREADMILL TREADMILL WORKS

Uses air to precisely and comfortably unweight to as little as 20% of body weight in 1% increments.

Reduces gravitational forces and impact without compromising natural biomechanics.

Provides data-driven improvement by integrating gait analytics and live digital video monitoring.

Gait measures can be shared in real time, allowing feedback and assessment of: weight bearing; step length; stance time; cadence

Live video feed is also available.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE ALTER-G TREADMILL & OUR REHAB MANAGEMENT:

Your treating physiotherapist may recommend the use of the Alter-G Treadmill as part of your post-op rehabilitation management plan. 

Using this machine will allow for progressive loading of the tissues towards pre-surgical activity, prevention of deconditioning and a quicker return to sport and activity in terms of projected time frames.

In post-operative management, use of the Alter-G is always discussed with surgeons before it is used. This ensures that open and clear communication is maintained throughout the team approach to your rehabilitation program.

** Anyone who is not currently a client of The Injury Clinic can still make use of the Alter-G rehab treadmill. However, you will need to complete an initial consultation with one of our physiotherapists before commencement. Doing so ensures that we can discuss your goals, aims and injury history to maximise benefit and limit risk. During this time, we will also provide instruction for use and care of the treadmill.
