Osteoporosis and Osteopenia

When ageing there is a natural decline in bone density and bone strength. The growth of new bone tissue decreases and the degradation of existing bone increases. In osteoporosis, there is such a deterioration of bone that it becomes brittle and easy to break. The precise Low Intensity vibration produced by the LivMD is medically certified as a safe and effective treatment for osteoporosis and osteopenia, without any know side effects.  Every day, 10 minutes of use helps maintain and stimulate the growth of your bones and can prevent or reverse the conditions of osteoporosis and osteopenia.

 

Fall prevention

Falls are one of the most significant health risks people face as they age.  Ensuring strong bones helps prevent injury if you do fall, however the most effective treatment is not to fall in the first place. The vibrations produced by the LivMD stimulate the fast firing muscle fibres in the legs which help in maintaining balance and postural control.  This increased activity in the leg muscles has been shown to improve muscle strength and also stimulate new muscle to grow.  LivMD fits very well with a fall prevention program, as the treatment is safe it can be effectively used by unconditioned people.

 

Active Ageing

Ageing happens to us all and is unavoidable, however the way we age and our level of health and fitness can be under our control. The LivMD helps you to maintain or increase your level of activity, which leads you to a much healthier and enjoyable way of life.

Normally when we age muscle activity decreases, which has a negative effect on blood circulation, lymphatic flow, flexibility and general fitness.  The LivMD stimulates the muscles and this improves muscle strength, endurance and flexibility. You feel fitter and healthier.

Research has shown that the LivMD  has the following advantages and effects on healthy ageing:

  • Improves blood circulation and lymphatic flow
  • Improved balance, postural reflexes (control) and co-ordination
  • Brings mobility back to the joints

 

Rehabilitation

Low Intensity Vibration therapy has proven beneficial effects on the whole body, especially for people with limited mobility and / or functionality.

For more than 25 years, research has been conducted in hospitals, rehabilitation centres and universities around the world.  It has developed into a safe and effective, drug-free therapy to assist patients who are recovering from bone surgery and bone conditions leading them to have decreased recovery time and increased quality of wound healing.
