VALD Health System

VALD Health System at ALO Physiotherapy Clinic

At ALO Physiotherapy Clinic, we pride ourselves in providing an evidence-based approach with the implementation of technology to support our decision-making process. Therefore, we implement the VALD Health systems in our clinic. The systems have been developed by leading researchers and clinicians. Data from your assessment is recorded and analysed in real-time. Your Physiotherapist will then explain the findings using live data visualisation and reports. The data will be used as a baseline and you will be reassessed at an appropriate point in your treatment plan, your Physiotherapist will advise you on when this will be.

The VALD Health System that is appropriate for your specific requirements will be selected by one of our expert Physiotherapists. The technology they have at their disposal are:


ForceFrame, ForceDecks, NordBord, AirBands


The ForceFrame

The ForceFrame is the most adaptable and accurate system for muscle testing and provides insight into imbalances, through combining its advanced sensors with real-time results and analytics.

It can be used to test a vast variety of body sites:

  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Hips
  • Knees
  • Ankles
Our expert Physiotherapist may also opt to implement the ForceFrame into your rehabilitation plan.

The ForceDecks

The ForceDecks can be used to analyse balance, strength and movement strategies to assess for risk of injury, collect baseline data, monitor rehabilitation progress and improve performance.

They can be used to during upper and lower body assessments, with your Physiotherapist selecting the most appropriate tests which will be specific for your needs.

The assessments may include balance, dynamic movements, isometrics and/or ballistic movements.


The NordBord

The NordBord is an accurate and reliable system for monitoring hamstring strength and imbalances. It will allow your expert Physiotherapist to accurately quantify your rehabilitation plan according to the findings and monitor your progress through your rehabilitation plan to ensure you stay on target for achieving your goals.


The AirBands are wireless blood flow restriction (BFR) cuffs, they will be used to leverage the benefits of BFR during your rehabilitation if clinically indicated and implemented with an evidence-based training programme.

The benefits of BFR are as follows:

  • Reduced mechanical load to painful joints.
  • Increase muscle strength using 15-30% of 1 rep max.
  • Muscle hypertrophy.
  • Reduce muscle atrophy post-operatively.
  • A bridge-therapy to progress to heavier resistance training.

Your expert Physiotherapist will guide you in your rehabilitation journey and implement the appropriate technology to ensure you achieve your desired goals.

Our VALD Health Systems can also be utilised to gain an insight into injury risk and baseline for individuals and groups. We screen elite and recreational athletes, provide guidance on injury risks that have been identified and strategies to implement for reducing these risks.

Recovering from a full Achilles rupture. Started my work with Nina in feb and my progress has only been positive and upwards and I am almost at full speed again. Nina put me back together again almost from scratch. She is the best physio I have ever worked with and will again. Very knowledgable and very hard working. Can’t recommend enough.


What a great find! My orthopaedic surgeon recommended them and I can't rate Luigi, Gloria and the team more highly. Excellent service and very effective treatment- recovering nicely!


I am 84 years old, and have always been fit and healthy and exercised regularly. 3 years ago I underwent emergency surgery for peritonitis, and had a colonoscopy bag for 6 months and straight after surgery to reversal of the stoma. After this surgery I felt my legs very weak. To complete my drama, during the last summer I developed an abdominal hernia and had surgery for hernia repair. This made me even weaker specially at my legs. I have recovered but felt weak. I started my sessions at ALO Physiotherapy at the beginning of January, with the Vibra Machine combined with specific exercises. I have now recovered my body strength, particularly in the legs. I am now walking normally and without pain. I am delighted!


Great clinic with great people! I was so lucky to find this clinic and even more when I met Andre. He's a very talented therapist and a wonderful person who makes you feel comfortable every time. He helped me to resolve my back problems in few appointments and I will be always grateful to him! From my experience is the best clinic in London and I highly recommend them without any doubts!


One of the best physiotherapy centres in the world! The professionalism and knowledge of this centre amazed me.


I am so glad I found this clinic. Luigi has been amazing. After my 1st session I felt an improvement and now have ALOT more movement and significant reduction in pain. I couldn’t recommend this clinic & Luigi enough. So helpful and flexible whenever I have needed to amend appointments. Every one is fantastic. I will continue to come here for as long as I need.


Andre is the best physiotherapist I came across. As a dedicated martial arts practitioner, I regularly use his services. He has always managed to fix my various back and leg injuries. I would recommend Alo Physiotherapy to anyone who suffers from body pain.


Where do I begin? The journey has been too long with Andre Oliveira and ALO Clinic , as he helped me both physically and mentally to overcome an injury I had in both of my knees. A small injury , after following wrong treatment became chronic and I found myself unable to walk/stand/run and do the simplest things- the mental impact was worse. I was introduced to Andre by Eleftherios Pavlidis who runs Laertion in Athens. lefteris with his team were the first to accommodate the problem and told me what I need to do. As a Londoner, I was introduced to Andre and ALO Clinic, and the rest is history. Since February 2017 when I had the first session with Andre and he identified the biomechanic nature of the problem, along with the use of Tecar the results were visible after one month. Since then, along with personal effort and strengthening I did always guided by Andre, I the problem is restored and the pain is gone. I highly recommend ALO Physiotherapy Clinic , and Andre Oliveira for anyone who suffers from sport injuries , amateurs or professional top athletes.


Very professional staff and friendly environment. I felt a lot better after very first session. Appointment are easily available. I would definitely recommend this place
