Fit_w50m50_6460Whole Body Vibration History

Whole body vibration (WBV) has been around since the late 1800’s when in 1898 an article by the French neurologist, Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot, was published where he deduced that the improvement in his Parkinson’s patient symptoms was the result of the vibration from their horse and buggy ride to his office.  Since then, Europe has seen the value of whole body vibration in treating cosmonauts, training of Olympic athletes and maintenance of good bone health in its geriatric population.  North America received its first exposure to whole body vibration in 2003 when Orthometrix introduced the Galileo® 2000, now distributed in the US and Canada as Galileo®.

With the thousands of WBV devices throughout Europe and North America, Galileo® has positioned itself as the vibration platform that works.  This innovative technology is protected by a worldwide patent and has been the focal point of WBV literature and research.  Having both critical elements for success, a functional teeter-totter pattern of vibration and the appropriate frequency range, this innovative and ground breaking technology can benefit many Canadians
