AlterG anti gravity treadmill

The AlterG Treadmill has been designed, using anti-gravity technology, to give patients the advantages of early rehabilitation by making excercise easier. The aim of the AlterG is to minimise any weight bearing pain experienced by reducing pressure on the patient's lower body.

This is achieved by filling the treadmill's pressure-controlled chamber with air which gently lifts the patient up. The technology used allows patients to excercise at a chosen percentage, between 20% and 100%, of their body weight which can be adjusted throughout the process for optimum results.

The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill has historically only been available to elite performance sports men and women however, everyone can now benefit from its use as it is now available at the Spire Manchester Hospital.

30.11.2016 - We are holding a free, no obligation 3D virtual reality breast technology information evening for patients on Wednesday 30 November at 6.30pm with Mr Lambe.

07.07.2016 - Mr Chris Peach talks us through preventing upper limb tennis injuries. As we look forward to the Wimbledon final, the lucky few who will travel down to SW19 can dream of sunshine, strawberries and cream and enjoyable tennis, whilst the rest of the club tennis players are staying at home. For those who are continuing to play this summer, it may not be at the forefront of your minds to consider the frequency and burden of injury to the upper limb in what is a non-contact and leisurely pastime.
