Anti-Gravity Treadmill at Physio Fit Adelaide

Our Anti-Gravity Treadmill is an innovative piece of equipment that can help you with a range of problems. Originally designed by NASA to help maintain the bone density and strength of Astronauts in zero gravity. It was then adapted by Nike to help elite runners and athletes overtrain to increase their performance, whilst limiting the stress on their joints. From this, the physiotherapy industry has seen a huge opportunity to improve how we can rehabilitate patients with a wide range of conditions, in a safer and more natural lifelike environment, to get the best possible outcomes in a shorter time.

The Anti-Gravity Treadmill uses differential air pressure to reduce the percentage of body weight going through the treadmill, enabling walking, jogging or running at anywhere from 20% to 100% of your bodyweight. This can be used for a number of conditions to help ensure safe, yet quick return from injury or surgery whilst maintaining fitness. Using an Anti-Gravity Treadmill can help you recover from injuries such as broken bones, ligament tears and muscle injuries as well as assist with athletes who would like to increase their running loads without placing too much stress on their ankle, hip and knee joints.

The Anti-Gravity Treadmill will help people who have conditions that require them to have a period of decreased weight going through their legs or back, which may be due to traumatic injury, pain, surgery or neurological issues.

Our Anti-Gravity Treadmill is an innovative piece of equipment that can help you with a range of problems.

Incorporating our Anti-Gravity Treadmill into your rehabilitation program will help you:

  • Maintain and develop cardiovascular conditioning without stressing injured areas
  • Train with your normal gait, and avoid developing any compensatory habits
  • Achieve higher level training sooner than otherwise possible
  • Reduce the risk of re-injury after returning to the field, court, or track
  • Prepare for long distance events such as marathons, ultra marathons and ironman events, aiming to remain injury free whilst increasing your training loads significantly
  • Push your training to the next level by running at higher speeds than possible at body weight, aiming to remain injury free and improve performance

At Physio Fit, we work in partnership with our clients because we know that this provides the best outcomes for you.

Our team of Physiotherapists at Physio Fit Adelaide will help to give you clarity:

As Physiotherapists, we use our Anti-Gravity Treadmill to help people return to running or walking quicker as it allows you to work on loading the body and increasing muscle strength in the areas needed, whilst reducing the impact going through joints that may be injured or painful. For example, common uses in the clinic in a sporting setting is helping athletes keep strength in their legs by walking or jogging during a time they would otherwise be inactive for, such as recovering from a foot or knee surgery.

I highly recommend Trent and the Physio Fit team.I sustained a knee injury (fat pad impingement) in a half-marathon around 18 months ago, and after 12 months of seeing a (different) physio and sports doctors without any improvement, I was told by the doctor that I would "probably just have to put up with the pain".I booked in with the team at Physio Fit for another opinion, and it was the best decision I ever made. Trent put together a very manageable rehab plan for me and was quick to respond and adapt when something didn't work out. In the past 6 months, I've gone from not being able to walk without pain or even think about hiking, running or cycling without my knee flaring up, to running my first post-injury 5.5km trail run and hiking 10km with a 10kg pack!

I attended Physio Fit to get my tennis elbow treated. Always a friendly greeting from the lovely reception staff, and my physio, Corey, was fantastic; very friendly, knowledgeable and provided treatment that was personalised and holistic. Following Corey's advice and exercise regime helped me get back to the activities I enjoy, pain-free. Highly recommended.

Have been taking my daughter here for quite a few months now for ongoing back issues. The care that she has been given through her Physiotherapist Corey, has been fantastic. Everything has been explained and if exercises have needed to be modified he has. Would thoroughly recommend this place for any Physio needs. All staff that we have dealt with have been friendly and professional. A great team and environment.
