Passport2Health partner Nuffield Health is now offering the chance to do a little moon walking with the Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill during their exercise and rehabilitation sessions.

Simon Webster of Nuffield Health comments: "We believe in the importance of integrated health and fitness, where patients and members can receive the best possible care in the most convenient way. We look to provide the most effective treatments, which will help people to recover and continue to achieve their goals. Be it for competition or general day-to-day life."

Former professional footballer Simon Webster adds, “What we have found is that you can get people up and weight-bearing a bit earlier than you would normally do. We can get people on the AlterG, reduce the weight, try and encourage normal mechanics of walking a little bit earlier."

The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill uses differential air pressure that can un-weight up to 80% of a person's body weight, allowing for stable support during rehabilitation.
