Since beginning my workouts with the Galileo dumbbell, I have seen neuro return in my triceps, my pecs, my lats, my lower scapular muscles, several shoulder muscles, my middle delts; and I’ve seen a huge boost in strength in all of these, and in those that were already gaining strength. I have improved so much and so quickly while using the dumbbell that I catch myself sometimes taking it for granted. When aspiring to overcome your spinal cord injury, any recovery modality that you find, which offers a long run of improvement without a plateau, is quite a Godsend. The ability for this device to awaken a quad’s upper body is nothing short of remarkable. I look forward to reporting back with more details of my progress with the Galileo dumbbell, the Galileo tilt table, and my inevitable return to the exoskeleton!
The Galileo technologies, seemingly, offer the best form of muscle activation for the paralyzed body and offer the most exercise, neuro-recovery, and health boosting qualities of any modalities available.
While we all enjoy, benefit from, and aspire to walk again, it is technology like that of the Galileo’s of Stim Designs that will help some of us make the leap into the realm of the exoskeleton, and invariably improve the health and quality of life of anyone who uses them.
