GALILEO® for orthopaedic diseases?
Galileo therapy can be successfully used in the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Parkinson, incomplete Paraplegia, muscular dystrophy,stroke-patients as well as in chronic pain such as Fibromyalgia oder joint pain.
Depending on the indication, therapy progress can be achieved with the help of different frequencies. Depending on the selected frequency balance, coordination, muscle function or muscle power can be improved, spasticity (spasticity mangement) or contractures can be reduced. Notably, the wobble function of the current device generation has also been specially designed for this field of application.

Why Galileo® for orthopaedic diseases?
Therapy goals in orthopaedics:
Numerous areas of application
Exercises for mobilisation, relaxing or strengthening on Galileo can be used, for example, for back pain. Injuries such as ligament injuries can be treated with the help of Galileo during aftercare. Another field of application is the treatment of immobilisation-related loss of strength and power. Patients with multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's disease as well as patients after a stroke can also benefit from Galileo therapy.
Galileo® therapy as a complementary component
As a complementary form of therapy, Galileo Therapy can enhance the existing treatment and be integrated as a building block in an interdisciplinary therapy concept. The integrated Galileo therapy can thus significantly increase the effects of the current therapy services. The use in combination with cable pulls or free weights has proven very successful in practice. This can be made even more efficient by using the Galileo Mano Med vibration dumbbells. Due to increased blood circulation and improved metabolism, it is also possible to accelerate the healing process under professional guidance and supervision by the therapist.
Efficient tool to prevent loss of muscle function
Due to its great efficiency, Galileo can enable a very short application time. Positive effects can already be achieved with only 2x10 minutes of Galileo therapy per week. This efficiency of Galileo therapy, among other things, allows for a very high level of compliance. At the same time, Galileo is safe and has been extensively studied in numerous studies, especially in geriatrics.
RELAXATION AND STRENGTHENING
Due to the side-alternating movement of the Galileo therapy platform, the triggered reflex muscle contractions can extend up into the back. Side alternation is crucial here, as this allows the muscles to contract and relax each side alternately For back patients, it is especially important to release tensions in the back muscles.
STRETCHABILITY AND FLEXIBILITY
Stretching ability and flexibility are underestimated skills that are often needed in everyday life. They are often already noticeable during shoulder checks in the car. Shortening of the muscle-tendon apparatus leads to movement restrictions, which usually result in pain - the best example of this is chronic back pain. Stretchability and flexibility are crucial for the body's ability to store energy temporarily. This stored energy is essential for effective locomotion. With each step, we recycle about 80-90% of the energy needed. The loss of this storage capacity thus makes locomotion more strenuous and difficult. Galileo Therapy can be used extremely effectively to loosen tight muscles, stretch shortened structures and thus increase mobility. This results in improved posture and coordination, tension is released and the muscles are better supplied with blood.
With increasing age or immobility, muscle power and muscle strength decrease. During the Galileo application, high frequencies can therefore preferentially stimulate the growth of those muscles that are used for high forces and fast movements. Typical everyday movements in this category are rising from a chair and climbing stairs, but also the sudden lunge to avoid an imminent fall when tripping. If the muscles are also stiffened, energy can no longer be stored efficiently. Movements are lacking then the necessary speed and efficiency. With poor movement efficiency, the body has to expend much more energy for the same movement, which in turn can result in reduced performance. However, precisely this muscle power and muscle strength can be increased with Galileo Therapy.
