The VibraFlex® Series was designed based on the internationally patented Galileo® technology established in the medical field. This patented technology has been used for the majority of the original research done in the field of whole body vibration training. Others may quote the vibration literature however, results from one system cannot be implied to another since the parameters of vibration can differ. When examining the literature, ensure the research has been conducted on the system under evaluation.

The following Published Articles using our technology are available to download for your review.
The Reference List contains a lengthy and substantive bibliography on vibration. For a list of references, please click here.
