LiveBand.

Life is not a rehearsal.
See your health live!

LiveBand is a super-easy way to stay fit. Attach it onto a resistance band, like a Theraband, and just like that you're connected to an app with exercise programmes. It was created to help measure your progress and make it motivational to follow a variety of exercises recommended by trainers or therapists.

Start small, but waste no time.

We lose 3% to 8% of muscle mass per decade after we hit 30 if we're inactive. Our bone mineral density also decreases as we age. Everyone's body is different. Putting LiveBand onto a traditional resistance band gives you automatic feedbacks, helps you personalise your training, no matter where your starting point is.

Clip on. You're on.

 LiveBand gives you live  feedback of the tension force, and counts the rep of your exercise only when you're doing it right. There is an exercise for every body part!  

Coaching in the app.

  Tailored programmes to help you reach your weekly exercise target. Follow a free programme, or have a Zoom session with a physio when it suits.

Feel fitter, take control of your biology.

Understanding why you can feel better is the first step to motivation. It's not just dopamine release. There is growing research worldwide in muscle strength training for health. We have selected some noteworthy findings for you from the experts.

Improve heart health

Your bad cholesterol level, which relates to the building up of plague deposit on the artery wall to your heart, can be reduced by resistance band training. It can also benefit high blood pressure. Tap on the + for more info.

Wayne State University in Detroit, US, found resistance training lowered low-density cholesterol in elderly women. In 2021 the Pusan National University in Korea showed that resistance band exercises improved blood pressure and lipid profile.

Boost bone density

When your muscles are working against resistance higher than what you normally encounter, they squeeze onto your bones and stimulate bone formation. This helps your balance, reduces risks of bone fracture, osteoporosis and falls.

Many studies, including a review of reviews from the Universities in Exeter and Bristol, UK, as well as the Harvard Medical School recommended strength training for bone health to improve bone health and balance. Appropriate programmes can target the hips, spine and wrists.

Lift your mood

The University of Limerick, Ireland, have found evidence that resistance exercise training resulted in significant reductions in symptoms of depression and anxiety. Both strength and aerobic trainings have many beneficial effects on brain health.

Direct crosstalk between muscle and brain have been discussed in a 2019 review in Nature. The existence of a endocrine loop is suggested, where skeletal muscle secretes myokines that can alter hippocampal function either directly or via a protein pathway.

Lower blood sugar

In a strength training workout, we use glycogen, a form of glucose stored in muscle, for fuel. Once this burns out, we start to replenish it from the liver and the blood back into the muscles, which helps decreasing blood glucose. Trained muscle also has a higher capacity for storage, hence less glucose in the blood.

The 2021 clinical study by the Pusan National University in South Korea found resistance band exercises improved insulin, glucose, HOMA-insulin resistance and body fat % in obese postmenopausal women. 

Fight age-related muscle degradation

Progressive strength training builds muscles as well as strengthening ligaments, tendons and cartilage. It directly combats the muscle loss as we age, and severe muscle degradation, called sarcopenia, that can result in loss of physical function, depression, and an increased risk of serious illnesses.

Exercise and diet are critical to healthy ageing, both mentally and physically. They directly influence mitochondrial biogenesis, energy metabolism, lipid metabolism and brain plasticity. Exercising to slow down age-related muscle loss may therefore be a converging mechanism to extend health and fight ageing.
