CPotential officially now has the largest range of Galileo whole body vibration equipment in the UK. All thanks to the generosity of the Morrisons Foundation.
Galileo has an excellent evidence base to their vibration equipment, demonstrating its benefit for children & young people with brain injury, muscle weakness, or functional difficulties.
Brett Parker, CPotential CEO said “it feels great for the charity to be at the cutting edge of rehabilitation for children and young people. Many companies are using vibration devices, but all research is done using Galileo vibration plates due to their unique patented technology and the difference in quality and results are considerable. We were delighted to have Vicky Williams, Director and Founder of Galileo Therapy UK visit the Centre to fully train our clinical team in the equipment. The results we are seeing so far is incredible.”
Who is Galileo suitable for?
Babies and children aged from 3 months to 18 years old with a primary movement disorder, due to conditions such as cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury, global development delay or other neurological disorders. If you are uncertain if we can help you or your child, please do still get in touch.
How can Galileo help my child?
Using the full range of vibration platform, tilt table and dumbbells, each plays a vital role in our physiotherapy sessions. The children love the sensory feedback that vibration gives and at the same time there are many of the following key benefits to boost a child’s mobility and independence:
- Reduces spasticity
- Improves motor function
- Improves muscle control
- Improves balance
- Improves circulation
- Builds bone density
The tilt table can provide the ability to weight-bear safely helping to maintain and build bone density. This can be a very safe method working with children unable to stand or walk.
The vibration platform supports children and young people with their balance and strengthening exercises, increasing upper and lower body strength and improving sitting ability. Repetitive tasks in squatting and sit-to-stand help more mobile children gain vital skills and strength for daily living.
The dumbbells are used in particular for the reduction of spasticity or movement restrictions, circulatory disturbances, improvement of motor functions or for strengthening of muscles.
