Whole Body Vibration Therapy
Novoleo uses the highly researched Galileo Mechanostimulation whole body vibration machine to stimulate muscle strength, muscle power, muscle flexibility, and balance, as appropriate for your specific needs.
How we work
The Galileo has 375+ medical studies proving its efficacy when applied to the therapeutic program. The short answer as to how it works is this: remember when the doctor hit your knee with a small rubber hammer and your leg kicks out? That’s called the stretch reflex. That reflex happens because your muscle fibers get stimulated by the tap and the spinal cord activates the quads to kick out at the doctor. The Galileo stimulates that same response (much more comfortably) but does it in a more organized way to mimic walking. The Galileo literally causes the muscles to contract and relax in the same pattern used for walking. BRILLIANT! So even if you are too weak to exercise or have some disturbance in your movement pattern, the Galileo can help you normalize the movement.
