AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill

AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill at Donegal Physiotherapy Clinic

The Alter G Anti-Gravity Treadmill® is a revolutionary medical rehabilitation treadmill with its unique differential air pressure technology that provides accurate, safe and comfortable partial weight-bearing therapy while promoting normal walking/running patterns.

This technology allows your Physiotherapist to specifically select the amount of your body weight you will run or walk with. In many cases this will mean an earlier return to running in the rehabilitation process.

Alter G is used by elite athletes worldwide. All 20 Premier League Clubs utilise the device as an important part of the rehabilitation. Leinster, Ulster and Munster Rugby teams as well as the Irish Institute of Sport take advantage of this machine on a daily basis.

Alter G can be advantageous for those

  • Returning from surgery
  • Running high volumes per week who would like to get more conditioning into their program, but without the extra loading
  • Rehabbing from stress reactions or fractures
  • Rehabbing from muscle injuries or ankle sprains
  • Weight reduction
  • Gait retraining after stroke or other neurological disorders
