What is LivMD?
LivMD is an effective form of low-intensity vibration. It offers all of the positive aspects of WBV including restoring motion to joints, redeveloping muscles, assisting as an adjunct treatment for obesity and relieving aches and pains throughout the body.
What makes LivMD different from whole body vibration?
Marodyne’s product utilizes low intensity vibration as opposed to traditional WBV, which uses high intensity vibration. While LivMD is associated with redeveloping muscles and restoring motion to joints, high-intensity vibration is associated with a rigorous musculoskeletal work out and enhanced athletic performance.

How can LivMD be as effective with such a low force?
The nervous system is designed to respond positively to mild forces and protect itself from overbearing forces by muscle guarding. An example of this phenomenon would be a slow gentle stretch that provides for greater increases in ranges of motion than a forceful stretch allows.
