Galileo Research Fact Sheet #80: Can Galileo Therapy increase muscle power in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH)?


This study tested the effects of only 4 weeks of Galileo Therapy on muscle power (CRT and 6 minutes walking test), function of the cardiovascular system (CO2 max., anaerobe threshold) and quality of life. The control groups received standard physio therapy and was stable in their function over a longer period of time. The Galileo Group received addition Galileo Therapy (60 minutes per session, 20Hz, different exercises, pos. 2).

The Galileo Group showed essential improvements in all documented functions like +12% improvements in muscle power and 23% improvements in quality of life. This study, as also #GRFS41, #GRFS34 and #GRFS31, is a good example how Galileo Therapy can be used safely even in patients in a significantly deconditioned state to improve muscle power and therefore quality of life.
