Why Galileo® for prevention

Application goals for prevention:


Prevention instead of therapy

Avoiding chronic back pain, easing tension or effective fall prophylaxis are typical goals of Galileo in prevention. Well-functioning and coordinated back muscles can prevent the occurrence of tension pain, especially in the back muscles. Depending on the level of the selected stimulation frequency, the back muscles can be relaxed or strengthened during the Galileo application.


Prevention of osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is characterised by the loss of bone mass and bone strength, resulting in an increased risk of fractures. Avoiding fractures by successful fall prophylaxis is therefore the core goal in osteoporosis prevention with Galileo. Improving muscle strength and power allows the muscles to work quickly and powerfully again. Thus, it again offers effective protection to prevent falls in everyday life. In addition, Galileo Therapy can effectively improve balance.


Prevention at work

Galileo is also used in the area of corporate prevention in the workplace. Both for occupations with sedentary work and for employees in production who often perform uniform work in a standing position, Galileo can effectively contribute to reducing physical impairments. Frequently occurring back pain or tension can be prevented by a daily 5-minute Galileo application at the workplace.

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 required energy. 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 getting up from a chair and climbing stairs, but also the sudden lunge to avoid an impending 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.



If the muscle is used more again, this has positive effects on the bone in the medium and long term. An active muscle prevents bone loss and can strengthen the bone if used with sufficient intensity. One should bear in mind that bone formation is basically a very slow process. Space research with Galileo shows: What is lost in bone mass in 8 weeks takes 2 years to rebuild - on the other hand, bone loss could be almost completely prevented with Galileo in Bedrest studies. Short-term goals of a therapy can therefore be achieved much more effectively on the muscle: A noticeable improvement in muscle function can be achieved with Galileo Therapy in just a few weeks and those who do not fall drastically reduce their risk of fracture!
