WHAT IS...

 

Not all Whole Body Vibration (WBV) technologies are created equal.  Galileo® contains features that help it stand out amongst its competitors.  These include the right frequency and right vibrational pattern, the most complete line of technologies with the highest quality construction, and published articles supporting Galileo® effectiveness.

Not all Whole Body Vibration (WBV) technologies are created equal. Galileo® vibration plate models contains features that help it stand out amongst its competitors.  These include the right frequency and right vibrational pattern, the most complete line of technologies with the highest quality construction, and published articles supporting Galileo® effectiveness.

Others may quote the vibration literature however; results from one system cannot be implied to another since the parameters of vibration can differ. When examining the marketing literature quoted by all, ensure the research has been conducted on the system under evaluation, or that the platform in question has been independently verified for accuracy of performance within the same parameters.

Galileo is the “original vibration platform” first patent filed in 1996

Whole body vibration (WBV) has been around since the late 1800’s when in 1898 an article by the French neurologist, Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot, was published where he deduced that the improvement in his Parkinson’s patient symptoms was the result of the vibration from their horse and buggy ride to his office. Since then, Europe has seen the value of whole body vibration in treating cosmonauts, training of Olympic athletes and maintenance of good bone health in its geriatric population. North America received its first exposure to whole body vibration in 2003 when Orthometrix introduced the Galileo® 2000, now distributed in the US and Canada as Galileo®.

With the thousands of WBV devices throughout Europe and North America, Galileo® has positioned itself as the vibration platform that works. This innovative technology is protected by a worldwide patent and has been the focal point of WBV literature and research. Having both critical elements for success, a functional teeter-totter pattern of vibration and the appropriate frequency range, this innovative and ground breaking technology can benefit many Canadians.
