So, Dr. Javier Tisaire Sánchez , a specialist in General Medicine , demonstrated its clinical benefits .

Thus, this study is a prospective clinical study in which the benefits obtained in patients who have received Happylegs passive gymnastics care are observed, compared to those who maintained their usual treatment . Note that in both groups no pharmacological intervention was given different from that prescribed for their pathologies.

The observation period was dated six months with clinical evaluation at the beginning and at the end of observation. Regarding the treatment, the patients had to dedicate 60 minutes, three days a week during the observation period .


After the first part of the observation period, we collected clinical benefits in diabetic patients , especially those of reduced mobility. Their glycemic numbers before and after the treatment period descended a 6.5% in the very initial phase of observation.
