Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy: Experience, Excellence, Results
Found in one of the best physio clinics in Melbourne, the Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a revolutionary medical rehabilitation treadmill. Developed by NASA, the Alter-G uses air pressure technology to provide accurate, safe and comfortable partial weight-bearing therapy as you aim to walk, jog or run during a rehabilitation program.
Melbourne CBD Physio offers the only Alter-G machine in the Melbourne CBD area.
Return to Training Faster
Unlike hydrotherapy or harnesses, the Alter-G allows you to keep your normal running gait and technique.
The treadmill will gently reduce your bodyweight with air pressure from 100% to as low as 20% in precise 1% increments for low-impact and pain-free movement.
The Alter-G can be used for an array of different injuries or modified exercise programs. Melbourne CBD Physio patients commonly use the Alter-G to rehabilitate bone, joint and specific muscle related injuries.
Many of our elite athletes use the Alter-G to manage training load or return from injury. It also produces fantastic outcomes in the rehabilitation setting for all kinds of patients.
