Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. offers the LivMD Vibration Plate


Shirley, New York (PRWEB) March 11, 2015

LivMD improves a wide variety of conditions, including balance and muscle health, circulation and posture. It also helps to reduce pain. The device can be used for stand-alone therapy or as part of a rehabilitation program. Because it is low intensity, it is useful for those who have brittle bones or problems with balance. Just 10 minutes a day is all that is required to receive the benefits from LivMD.

LivMD is for people that wish to remain active, or as an adjunct therapy for supporting musculoskeletal health in the elderly or infirm. Unlike traditional whole-body vibration that operates with acceleration of 10g, low intensity vibration is a safe, scientifically-proven biological signal that improves physiological and neuromuscular health by improving muscle control and condition, balance, circulation, posture and reduces pain – all of which contribute to increased mobility and reduced fall risk.

The technology of low-intensity vibration is ideal for those who find it difficult to exercise or for whom certain forms of exercise may be unsafe due to risk of fracture, falls, or joint damage, or for those struggling to incorporate ample exercise to maintain independence.

“We are excited to include the LivMD as part of our Mobility Enhancement devices,” states Don Gronachan, Vice President Physical Medicine Sales. “It can be used for a wide variety of pathologies allowing therapists and facilities to increase their clinical value.”

Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. Focuses on Helping Older Adults Maintain/Restore Their Functional Independence


Shirley, NY (PRWEB) November 06, 2014

Providing strength and aerobic conditioning – to improve balance and mobility – is important in helping older adults maintain their independence. Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. is featuring the Balance System™ SD and BioStep® 2 Semi-Elliptical Cross Trainer at the upcoming conference venue in Orlando, Florida for ICAA, MFA and Athletic Business.

The Biodex Balance System SD offers training modes to improve balance, increase agility, and develop muscle tone. Training includes static and dynamic balance exercise, weight shifting, increasing limits of stability and improving reaction time. System generated reports provide motivating feedback. The device includes a comprehensive Fall Risk Screening & Conditioning Program with an integral test that can quickly and accurately identify “potential fall” candidates.

The BioStep 2 helps strengthen the muscles specifically associated with mobility, walking and balance. The device provides a zero impact, safe and comfortable total body workout in both forward and reverse directions. The fluid motion is forgiving on knees, ankles, hips, and lower back. The low impact motion reduces the jarring impact often associated with other recumbent steppers.

Simple to use, these Balance & Mobility devices are suitable for physical rehabilitation under the direction of a therapist, or wellness centers where minimal supervision is available. Whatever the starting point, patients/members can progress through the various levels at their own pace.

“Biodex understands the value older adults place on maintaining their independence. A wellness program with a plan to improve balance and mobility helps meet this goal,” states Don Gronachan, Vice President Physical Medicine Sales. “We offer the Balance System SD and BioStep 2 for strength building and total aerobic exercise.”

Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. manufactures rehabilitation devices for all disciplines of physical medicine including Senior Rehabilitation, Sports Medicine/Orthopedic, Neurorehabilition, Post-Acute Care and Wellness Conditioning.

The ICAA, MFA and Athletic Business conferences takes place November 13-14, 2014, Orlando, FL. Visit Biodex in the Athletic Business pavilion, Booth #423 for a hands-on product demonstration.
