Therapy & prevention with Galileo®

The central importance of muscles for a healthy and efficient organism has been increasingly recognised in recent years and investigated in numerous scientific studies. A fully-functioning powerful muscle is a prerequisite for healthy joints and bones that aim to prevent and facilitate treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. In this section you will find all information about the successful use of Galileo in therapy and prevention.

Physiotherapy and rehabilitation

In physiotherapy and rehabilitation Galileo is used in combination with "conventional" therapies such as manual therapy. Due to the high number of repetitions in a short time, Galileo supports the therapist by increasing the efficiency of therapy significantly. For example, existing residual functions in incomplete paraplegics are activated much faster than with traditional methods. more...

Medical faculties

In geriatrics Galileo is used to effectively train older, fragile and fall-compromised patients to counteract the loss of mobility and the resulting subsequent muscle and bone loss. In paediatrics Galileo Training helps especially in the treatment of children and adolescents with musculoskeletal disorders such as Osteogenesis Imperfecta (brittle bone disease) or spina bifida (open spine) after a coordinated interdisciplinary treatment approach. more...

Disease patterns

Directed muscle training on Galileo has been successfully used in osteoporosis treatment. Pelvic floor training on Galileo helps with stress incontinence. Back pain can be alleviated through relaxation, stretching, and improving coordination using the Galileo. After a stroke, Galileo Training helps to improve tone control and coordination. Higher movement speeds can also be achieved by promoting relaxation by stretching. more...

Occupational health promotion

Only an employee who feels well can be fully focused on their work. Following the approach "movement is the best medicine" Galileo Training is used in occupational health. With minimal expenditure of time muscle cramping and future back problems, for example, can be alleviated or prevented. more...
