Galileo Research Fact Sheet #34: Can Galileo Therapy in crease power in patients with acute COPD exacerbations?


This study shows once more: Even inpatients with acute COPD (exacerbations) Galileo Therapy is not only safe but also increases muscle power and muscle function - even though the study used a very simple exercise: 3*2 minutes standing with knees bent slightly on the Galileo.

Especially the relevant 6 minutes walking test (simply measuring the distance covered by the patient within 6 minutes) which is relevant for every-day tasks improved by almost 60%. Similar results where shown in other Galileo studies in COPD patients (#GRFS124, #GRFS107, #GRFS41, #GRFS32).
