Osteoporosis Physical Therapy and Rehab

Tucked in one of the industrial areas along New Line Road, is a company called RehaCare Pty Ltd. They are suppliers of a very interesting device, the Marodyne LivMd, which I have recently purchased.

Diagnosed with borderline osteoporosis earlier this year at the age of 57, I thought I would try physical activity, improved diet and a low intensity vibration machine to try to stop the decline in my bones, all of course with the agreement of my doctor. Drugs for me are a last resort.

The Marodyne LivMD, (Low Intensity Vibration (LIV) treatment) was developed by Professor Clinton Rubin of Stony Brook University, New York. His research into non-invasive, non-pharmacological intervention to control osteoporosis was referenced in National Geographic’s January 2001 article about surviving space travel. His unique method delivers a very small mechanical vibration to stimulate a natural reaction in the body and signals to activate the cells of muscles and bones. People who are young and active, with a healthy muscle mass, create signals that are strong enough to stimulate these cells. However, people who are older, inactive or have poor muscle mass, produce slower signals which aren’t able to stimulate these cells: by using Marodyne LIV, stronger signals are created.


• Physical Therapy and Rehab
• Redevelops muscles
• Restores motion to joints
• Relieves minor muscle aches and pains

For use as an adjunct treatment for obesity, The Marodyne Low Intensity Vibration (LIV) biomechanical vibration treatment system provides a gentle, yet highly effective, stimulus for muscles and bones. Its action is designed to build up bone mineral density and valuable bone substance as well as strengthening the core muscles and postural stability.

Marodyne LiV – One of the most modern therapies providing safe, effective and drug-free treatment for osteoporosis, muscle weakness, circulation, immobility and fall prevention.
