LivMD

Vibration, wbv
To understand LivMD, start with the human body.

When a person stands on LivMD for 10 minutes, they experience 30 accelerations, or vibrations, per second at a low magnitude of 0.4g (gravitational force). That’s 1800 per minute. See a demonstration of LivMD.

The body responds to these incredibly fast but gentle vertical vibrations by sending a mechanical signal to the cells in the body that can sense and respond to the stimulus.

The involuntary muscle contractions that LivMD causes – at 30 per second — have been shown to promote muscular health.

Using LivMD for 10 minutes a day has been shown to have many health and wellness benefits for various age groups.

LivMD encourages muscle health

Low-intensity vibrations are a type of low-magnitude mechanical signal, delivered to the person standing on LivMD at a frequency of 30 cycles per second (Hz) and a magnitude of .4g (gravitational force).

To visualize this signal, consider that to maintain postural stability, the various muscles in your legs, back, and stomach are all undergoing the same approximate 30 small contractions per second.

These extremely small, high frequency contractions generate correspondingly small forces on the cells, including bone, fat, cartilage, and adult stem cells in the surrounding tissue. This has been shown to have a positive effect upon muscle and mobility.

LivMD is largely silent, and relaxing too. A user can talk on the phone, read or watch TV while using it. The user of LivMD feels a soothing buzzing sensation during a session.
