Helen Hayes Hospital using Galileo Therapy

One piece of state-of-the-art rehab technology that we use with stroke patients is Galileo Whole Body Vibration. It provides somatosensory stimulation with the goal of “jump starting” muscle contractions. Through the intense high-repetition rate called frequency, the patient’s ability to efficiently recruit the muscle fibers and coordinate movement being performed by the joint and muscle tissue is enhanced, thus improving strength.
