What is Galileo® VIBROTHERAPY?
Vibrotherapy is a form of therapeutic and preventive therapy that has appeared in Poland relatively recently. It has been known in the world since the 1940s, and its effectiveness is confirmed by physiotherapists around the world. The stimulus in vibrotherapy is vibrations. From a physiological point of view, these are physical stimuli, transmitted to selected body tissues or to the entire body
The mechanical impulse sent out by the device activates the muscles to work, resulting in increased blood and lymph flow. The vibrations can cover the entire body or selected parts of it.
The uniqueness of Galileo® VIBROTHERAPY?
Galileo’s principles are based on the natural motion of human gait. Galileo’s side-changing, swing-like motion of varying amplitude and frequency stimulates a sequence of movements reminiscent of human walking. The rapid movement of the training platform causes the pelvis to tilt – similar to walking, but much more frequent. The body responds with compensation: rhythmic muscle contractions, alternating between the left and right sides of the body.
So what is the uniqueness of Galileo vibrotherapy?
- Oscillatory rather than vertical movement,
- Large amplitude range - it depends on what you want to achieve with the patient,
- Inventor of vibration training with changing sides - original version,
- On the world market since 1996. Since 2004, it has been a certified medical device,
- A system well documented with more than 250 peer-reviewed articles,
- Galileo devices introduced the term "Whole Body Vibration Training "*.
Who is Galileo® VIBROTHERAPY aimed at?
During Galileo Training, the entire muscle chain in the legs is activated, all the way to the body. To train individual muscle groups, all you need to do is change your posture and muscle tension. Galileo Training puts only minimal strain on the cardiovascular system, helping to stimulate blood circulation and metabolism so it is ideal for patients with cardiac problems as well as the elderly.
Applications of Galileo® Vibrotherapy in Medicine
- Children with neuromuscular diseases (childhood cerebral palsy (CP), spinal muscular atrophy (SMA))
- Sports injuries (anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), tendons, range of motion)
- Back pain
- Urology (stress urinary incontine
- Neurology (spinal cord injury, stroke, MS, Parkinson's disease)
- Reduced physical activity in lung disease (COPD)
- Reduced physical activity and pain reduction in chemotherapy (oncology)
