Clinic Director of NAPA Center and occupational therapist Lisa Murphy explains why using a vibration plate in our OT and PT sessions is both fun and effective. Specifically, we love the Galileo Vibration Plate because it has a side to side alternating motion that most closely mimics walking. Pediatric therapy at home could include using this tool to wake up the body!

Well, it’s no secret that we love the vibration plate here at NAPA Center. More specifically, we use the Galileo which offers a side-to-side alternating motion that most closely mimic walking. We love the Galileo Plate for three reasons.

  • 1: It’s fun across the age ranges, even mom and dad like to get in on the action!
  • 2: It adds a bigger bang for your buck with all the exercises adding a strengthening component, increasing muscle activity, strength, and decreasing spasticity.
  • 3: You can decrease the frequency in order to build range of motion with a gentle stretch.
