Strong Muscles relieve arthritic Joints


This is shown in a study of 39 patients with knee osteoarthritis. Vibration training is equivalent to conventional strength training in terms of force development and pain reduction, but with a much lower expenditure of time.

The study tested patients who are suffering from knee osteoarthritis over an observation period of two months. The subjects were divided in three groups. One group trained twice a week for 16 minutes on the Galileo Sport, the second group attended twice a week for 45 minutes strength training. Both training groups show an increase in muscle force and a reduction of disease-related pain.
