What is an Anti-Gravity Treadmill?The Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a revolutionary rehabilitation treadmill that uses air pressure technology to provide accurate, safe and comfortable partial weight-bearing therapy while promoting normal gait patterns 

This treadmill uses “unweighting” from anywhere between 20-100% of your body weight to allow you to walk or run. In many cases this will mean an earlier return to running!

We are the only Podiatrists in Adelaide who have access to an Anti-Gravity Treadmill! If you’re looking for comprehensive hands on treatment, combined with a graduated return to 100%normal running, get in touch with our Podiatry team today!
