How astronauts and patients can use the same solution for osteoporosis treatment.
In the 80s, NASA wanted to help astronauts prepare for longer missions without further damage to their bone density.
Professor Clinton Rubin led the NASA Vibe Project. They began to research cellular activities and new ways to maintain bone substance while in space.
It was discovered that specific, low-intensity stimuli would activate the body’s cells and contribute to not only maintaining but building bones and muscle. They created a vibration platform through studies and trials that would transmit stimuli to the body.
From scientists' reviews around the world to the device under your feet, Canadians now have access to powerful technology that can increase musculoskeletal health.
Introducing Marodyne LiV: Your Drug-Free Health-Focused Solution for osteoporosis treatment

Here’s how it works.
Step onto the device for 10 minutes a day.
Low-intensity vibrations will begin. They provide stimulation to the health of your bones. Our gentler approach won’t shake you like those fitness machines at the gym.
It automatically adjusts for each individual user by weight and safely operates using a microprocessor.
Now you wait! Read a book or catch up on your favourite T.V. show while building up muscle.

A 1-year placebo-controlled research study of postmenopausal women demonstrated that low-level vibration effectively suppresses bone loss in the spine and femur. The placebo group lost 2.13% in femoral neck bone mineral density (BMD) over the year, whereas the active group of women was associated with a 2.17% relative benefit of treatment.
The researchers concluded: "If used regularly, the progress of osteoporosis can be at least slowed down, stopped or even reversed."
Kiel, et al., 2015
A study with frail seniors showcased a 10% greater femoral BMD compared to the placebo group. No adverse events were reported in this two-year study, which included subjects up to 102 years of age.
Gilsanz et al., 2006
A study with young adult females with low BMD showed that short bouts of LiV increased bone and muscle mass in the weight-bearing skeleton.
Marodyne LiV is transforming the lives of Canadians that want drug-free options for their health.
Osteoporosis can result in lower self-esteem, disfigurement, loss of mobility and decreased independence without the right treatment plan. Consider adding low-intensity vibrations to your health routine to combat further bone loss.
I was fascinated by the fact the treatment had been developed for NASA to help astronauts overcome the loss of bone density when in zero-gravity conditions. I feel much better these days and think the Marodyne LiV treatment is part of that. It gives me a great start to each day and sets me up nicely to eat well, gets my walk and Pilates sessions in and feel that I’m doing all I can to address my osteoporosis without having to resort to any medication.

I have been using the LiV low-intensity vibration plate for about a year now, and this week I had my follow-up DEXA exam. I wanted to let you know that my bone density statistics have increased significantly since my last exam in 2012! My overall T-score is -2.4, and the bone density in the lumbar spine has increased by 6.5%, and in the right femur, it has increased by 8.3%.
