Spinal Cord Injury

Galileo side-alternating vibration is a powerful tool after neural injury that promotes early mobilization from a laying to vertical position.  It is an easy-to-use tool that compliments standard therapies with the goal of optimizing muscle recovery and plasticity without overground training.  Galileo-Training prior to walking in many people improves their waking results.

Galileo works by putting muscles through thousands of reflexive muscle contractions in minutes DIRECTLY through the afferent & efferent nervous system engaging both small and large antagonistic muscles.  The high repetition rate provides efficient therapy with little stress on the cardiovascular system in 12-15 minutes resulting in an unparalleled rapid change in the tone of the muscles being utilized and neuromuscular function.

Results are often visibly evident after 2-3 weeks of training in therapy three times a week or, at home for more intense training twice-a-day morning and evening.     

Condition Effects:

  • Stimulation of muscles
  • Reduction of spasticity and management due to neuronal fatigue
  • Stimulation of the neurological system (both afferent and efferent nerves)
  • Stimulation of large muscle chains in a physiological pattern due to Galileo’s “side-alternating” movement pattern similar to the human gait
  • Improvement of intramuscular coordination
  • Improvement of balance, muscle function, force and power
  • Improvement in blood circulation and the lymphatic system
  • Improvement of blood flow
  • Higher bone mass and osteoporosis prevention
  • Back pain treatment and prevention
  • Combination of vibration and muscle training in a laying, sitting, and standing position
