Galileo Machine

 

We are pleased to inform you that we were the recipients of a Gravesham Can Grant and have used it to purchase a Galileo Whole Body Vibration Plate for the benefit of our clients and staff. Also known to us as the ‘Wobble Board!’ It is our aim to provide short supervised sessions with our clients to improve their well being, body strength and mobility.  Most clients enjoy the experience enormously.  Clients only need to stand on the machine for a few minutes regularly to gain benefits. Even those who are chair-bound can rest their feet on it and gain some benefits.

The vibrations are slight but research has shown a broad range of health benefits that include improving balance; leg strength; leg movement and improved bone density. 

The sessions would be tailored to the physical needs of the client, and would not last more than 10 minutes at a time. Over a relatively short period of time we would expect to see improvements in the general well being of those who use the machine and this would include their mobility.
