What is bioDensity?
BioDensity is a non-pharmaceutical therapy known as osteogenic loading used to achieve increased bone density and stronger muscles. During weekly sessions lasting fewer than 15 minutes, patients perform four specialized “trigger events” monitored by a trained technician to deliver the precise stimulus needed to activate the body’s natural adaptive responses. BioDensity's unique system helps people of all ages reach this limit without causing pain, muscle soreness, or fatigue.
How it Works
BioDensity's exercise is based on the principals of osteogenic loading. Osteogenic loading is a brief, intensive resistance exercise, designed to stimulate the bones natural ability to increase its density. Osteogenic loading "forces" have been shown to help maintain or increase bone mass.
An estimated 1.5 million individuals suffer a fracture as a result of osteoporotic bones each year. BioDensity's osteogenic loading exercise helps rebuild and recalcify bone structure.
Prior to the research on osteogenic loading technology and the bioDensity system, bisphosphonate medications were one of the few treatment options available for patients with osteoporosis and osteopenia. The non-pharmaceutical bioDensity system enables you to place a very brief but adequate pressure on your musculoskeletal system, signaling the body to add new bone and muscle tissue. These adaptive responses are perfectly natural, and the results are both real and measurable.
Risk Factors of Osteoporosis:
Factors that increase the risk of osteopenia and osteoporosis may include:
- Genetic or family history
- Low body weight
- History of poor nutrition
- Absence of normal menstrual periods
- History of cancer
- History of excessive alcohol use
- History of tobacco use
Symptoms of Low Bone Density:
There may be little or no warning of low bone mineral density. One or more of the following may signal risk of low bone mineral density:
- Point tenderness
- Fracture with minimal stress or impact
- Loss of height (up to 6 inches) over time
- Low back pain
- Stooped posture or kyphosis
What Will I Do in the bioDensity Session?
During a weekly visit to the bioDensity office, one will complete four specialized “trigger events” monitored by a trained technician to deliver the precise stimulus needed to improve bone mineral density. The force that you produce will be like pushing an object of significant weight and size in four different directions:
Forward using your hands
Forward using your feet
Upward using your knees
Upward using your legs, trunk and arms
