Galileo Research Facts No. 105: Can Galileo Training decrease Spinal Excitability even in micro-gravity?

Galileo Research Facts No. 105: Can Galileo Training decrease Spinal Excitability even in micro-gravity?

This study tested the effects of Galileo Training in micro-gravity conditions (parabolic flights). The muscle activation (EMG) and the Spinal Excitability (sensitivity of reflexes reacting on an external stimulus) was assessed with and without Galileo Training (25Hz) in normal gravity (1g) and micro-gravity (micro g). The results prove that Galileo Training can significantly decrease Spinal Excitability even in micro-gravity…

Galileo Research Facts No. 101: Does Galileo Training trigger a stretch-reflex with each upwards movement of the platform?

Galileo Research Facts No. 101: Does Galileo Training trigger a stretch-reflex with each upwards movement of the platform?

This study proved that Galileo Training triggers a stretch reflex with each upwards movement of the platform. It also proved that the EMG signal corresponding to the vibration frequency is not a motion artifact but an actual activation of the corresponding muscle. The measured latency is therefore not dependent on the vibration frequency but on the individual and is identical with the latency caused by one single tilt movement…
