One of the best things about Cornwall Physio, in my opinion, is our anti-gravity treadmill, and that’s a pretty big claim since we have so many awesome bits of tech here. Here’s why…
The Alter-G gives you the power to start walking and running again many weeks, even months before you would normally be able to do so in your recovery.
It is Literally Breaking the Rules of Gravity!
Running typically generates the force of 4-6 times your body weight, which has to be absorbed and recycled by your body in a split second as you spring from stride to stride.
When you are recovering from injury, progressing from walking to running again can be a huge leap, and one that often results in frustration and failure.
Drum Roll…. Enter the Alter-G…
Thanks to our AlterG “anti-gravity” treadmills NASA-derived technology, it requires only the touch of a button to increase the air pressure around the lower body, lifting, reducing strain, and minimising impact on the legs—allowing the patient to exercise and strengthen injured or weakened limbs.
Imagine running without the hard impact that keeps aggravating your injured knee, or that sore Achilles. Imagine your first pain free walk after having major surgery.
These are just a few examples of the powerful moments we share with our clients every day of the week. It truly is an amazing invention, cheers NASA!
