Wanderers midfielder Sam Saunders stepped up his rehabilitation from a knee injury with a session at BMI The Chiltern Hospital this week, making use of the hospital’s new AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill.

Saunders has been sidelined since January but edges closer to a return to action, having undergone treatment at both the club’s training ground and BMI The Chiltern Hospital – the club’s official medical partner.

Chairboys physio Cian O’Doherty explained: “The AlterG treadmill is a great tool for patients to gain early mobility, strength and fitness following injury. It works by using air pressure to unweight the patient and provide progressive multi-stage loading.

“This allows physios to rehabilitate patients with reduced weight-bearing on lower extremity injuries with less pain and impact. As the injury heals and becomes stronger, the patient is able to perform full weight-bearing. In short, rehab following injury or surgery can be started sooner, which allows the patient/athlete to return sooner.”
