Galileo Research Facts No. 149: Can Galileo Training significantly increase force and force development?

This study investigated the short-term effect of Galileo Training on force and force development (26Hz, 40° squat, Pos. 3, 5Min). The control group received identical exercises without Galileo or cycling ergometer (70W). Force and force development during electrostimulation was measured. While both control groups reduced the parameters 5 minutes of Galileo Training could increase force and force development significantly…

Galileo Research Facts No. 146: Can exercises with extra loads and with Galileo Training at 40Hz be more effective than without?

Galileo Research Facts No. 146: Can exercises with extra loads and with Galileo Training at 40Hz be more effective than without?

This study investigated the effects of squats and heel raises with extra loads on muscle function and cross-section with and without Galileo Training at 40Hz (20-40Hz, pos. 3-4, loads 80% 1RM (80kg), 3×8 squats (4 sec.), 3×12 heel raises, 6 weeks, 16 Sessions). The Galileo Group showed higher training effects with increases of isometric torque (up to +4%) and the speed indicator reactive ground contact time (-8%, Drop Jump)…

Galileo Research Facts No. 135: Can exercises with extra loads and with Galileo Training at 40Hz be more effective than without?

Galileo Research Facts No. 135: Can exercises with extra loads and with Galileo Training at 40Hz be more effective than without?

This study investigated the effects of squats and heel raises with extra loads on muscle function and cross-section with and without Galileo Training at 40Hz (20-40Hz, pos. 3-4, loads 80% 1RM (80kg), 3×8 squats (4 sec.), 3×12 heel raises, 6 weeks, 16 Sessions). The Galileo Group showed higher training effects with increases of muscle cross-section (up to +7%) and the speed indicator reactive ground contact time (-8%, Drop Jump)…

Galileo Research Facts No. 131: Can Galileo Training cause a sustainable improvement of torque at the knee?

Galileo Research Facts No. 131: Can Galileo Training cause a sustainable improvement of torque at the knee?

This study documented the effects of Galileo Training and concentric, eccentric and isometric knee torque in physical active young women (25Hz, pos.3, 2*5 min., 10° flexed legs, 5/week, 3 weeks). The control group continued their usual weekly training. The Galileo group received Galileo Training only. The Galileo group showed an improvement of knee torque by up to 16%. This effects was sustained even after 3 weeks (+7%)…

Galileo Research Facts No. 109: Can high frequencies increase muscle activation during Galileo Training?

Galileo Research Facts No. 109: Can high frequencies increase muscle activation during Galileo Training?

This study tested muscle activation (EMG) of different muscles of the leg at different frequencies between 5 and 30Hz (pos. 5, slightly flexed legs). It showed that high frequencies (25-30Hz) can increase muscle activation by up to 5.5 times compared to low frequencies at 5Hz. Therefore Galileo Training targeting muscle hypertrophy and muscle power should be using high frequencies above 20 Hz to increase muscle activation…

Galileo Research Facts No. 78: Do higher frequencies and knee angles increase pelvic floor activation?

Galileo Research Facts No. 78: Do higher frequencies and knee angles increase pelvic floor activation?

This study examined during Galileo Training the effects of increasing frequencies and higher squatting angles on pelvic floor activation (EMG in relation to MVC, maximum voluntary contraction) (6-26Hz, 20°-40° squat, Pos. 3). The study shows that increasing knee angles and especially increasing frequencies significantly increase pelvic floor muscle activation up to 15%…

Galileo Research Facts No. 34: Can Galileo Therapy increase power in patients with acute COPD exacerbations?

Galileo Research Facts No. 34: Can Galileo Therapy increase power in patients with acute COPD exacerbations?

This study tested the effect of Galileo Therapy on muscle function and power in patients with acute COPD (exacerbations) (20Hz, pos. 2, 3*2 min., 5/week, 2-3 weeks, bent knees). Both groups received standard physiotherapy (20 min/day), the Galileo group additional Galileo Therapy (3*2 min.). The Galileo group showed significantly higher results than the reference group with an increase in the 6. min. walking test of 57%…

Galileo Research Facts No. 32: Can Galileo Therapy increase muscle function in COPD patients within just 3 weeks?

Galileo Research Facts No. 32: Can Galileo Therapy increase muscle function in COPD patients within just 3 weeks?

This study tested the effects of Galileo Therapy in COPD in-patients on muscle function and muscle power (24-26Hz, pos. 3, squatting exercises, 3×3 min., 5/week, 3 weeks). Both groups received conventional strength and endurance training (30 Minutes per session) and additionally 3×3 minutes squat exercises with and without Galileo. The Galileo group showed significantly higher therapy effects of up to extra 100%…

Galileo Research Facts No. 31: Can Galileo Therapy be used to increase muscle power even after lung transplant?

Galileo Research Facts No. 31: Can Galileo Therapy be used to increase muscle power even after lung transplant?

This study tested the effects of Galileo Therapy in COPD patients after a lung transplant on muscle function and muscle power (24-26Hz, pos. 3, squats, 3×2 Min., 3/week, 4 weeks). Both groups received conventional strength and endurance training (30 Minutes per session) and additionally 3×2 minutes squat exercises with and without Galileo. The Galileo group showed significantly higher therapy effects of up to extra 150%…

Galileo Research Facts No. 30: Can Galileo Training in children with Cerebaral Palsy (CP) build up muscle and improve gait within just 8 weeks?

Galileo Research Facts No. 30: Can Galileo Training in children with Cerebaral Palsy (CP) build up muscle and improve gait within just 8 weeks?

This study showed the effect of Galileo Therapy on muscle thickness and gait parameters in children with CP (Cerebral Palsy) (5-25Hz, pos.1-3, 6 Sets, 3 min. each, 3/week, over 8 week, increasing intensity). Both groups received regular physiotherapy, the control group additional physiotherapy. The conventional physiotherapy however was only able to stabilize conditions while the Galileo group improved significantly in just 8 weeks…
