Benefits of the Galileo and VibraFlex:
Exercises and/or redevelops the postural muscles, joints and reflexes after disease or injury
Improves muscle strength, reflexes and joint motion (range of motion)
Proven to increase strength and performance of trained athletes
Galileo exercise results in better muscle mass, tone and body composition
Proven to improve bone mass and density. Improved bone mass 27% in post menapausal women
Reduces the pain and disability associated with Osteoarthritis
Allows patients with Parkinson's disease to benefit from exercise that can slow the progress of the disease
Strenghtens pelvic floor muscles of patients with incontinence, VMO for patellar tracking
Improves circulation for people with Diabetes. Effective for Diabetic Neuropathy, or any neuropathy, including drug induced
Injury Prevention: A great warm up before strenuous activity
Increases balance and decreases fall risk in elderly patients.
Ellicits "Reflexed Induced Standing" for users with stroke, spinal cord injury, CP and more
Increases testosterone (7%) and growth hormone (460%) while decreasing cortisol (32%)
Use between intense sets increases performance on individual exercises. (A great way to flush bio-waste and lactic acid)
With the ability to generate a frequency in the 20-27 Hz range, the result is activation of the involuntary contractions. At 25 Hz, the Galileo 2000 produces 1500 repetitions per minute, and therefore a very strong training effect. The result of the muscle contractions is an increase in muscle strength and tone. Both inter- and intra-muscular coordination is improved. Additional strength benefits can achieved by wearing weight belts, dumbbells, etc. during the session. The Galileo's effect on muscles is similar to other powered devices, such as treadmills and bicycles.
As the user changes postural position, or contracts muscles, the effect of the vibration and contractions can be targeted to various areas, i.e, low back, quads, soleus, gastrocs, hamstrings, groin, adductors, pelvic floor muscles, VMO, etc.
And users\patients just love it! Many clinicians use it daily themselves. It promotes an intense workout in a brief time, without the downside of muscle soreness after exercise. It's a great way to start and finish your day.
"No one is so sick or so fit as to not benefit from the Galileo & VibraFlex."
