Galileo Research Fact Sheet #66: Can Galileo Therapy increase mobility and balance in stroke patients?


Similar to #GRFS40 this study examined the effects of Galileo Therapy on balance (functional reach test) and mobility (times up & go test, TUG) in stroke patients (stroke since at least 6 months).

For the Galileo Therapy a Galileo Delta Delta tilt-table in upright position was used. The patients did squat at 25Hz (pos. 2.5, 10 minutes) with their back leaning against the Galileo Delta for 5 times per week over a period of 4 weeks. Both groups received additional 30 minutes of standard neuro-developmental therapy.

With only additional 10 minutes the Galileo groups showed significantly higher results with improvements over 30% in balance and mobility. The same therapy could have been realized using a standard Galileo Therapy (standing) device - the advantage of using the Galileo Delta tilt-table was that the patients felt more secure since they could lean with their back against the Galileo Delta). Using a standing device however could have further improved the effects of the Galileo Therapy on balance.
