Osteoporosis is a serious
global healthcare problem, third only to obesity
and cardiovascular disease. It is a bone disease
characterized by low bone mass and
micro-deterioration of bone tissue leading to
bone fragility and increased risk of fractures.
200 million people worldwide have this
condition. Older individuals are at a greater
risk for developing osteoporosis. 33% of women
and 20% of men over 50 years of age will
experience osteoporotic fractures. 24% of those
who experience a hip fracture over 50 years of
age will die within the first year after the
A medical diagnosis is
usually confirmed by a DEXA scan. The amount of
bone density loss is reported to you as a
T-score. A T-score of -1 to -2.4 indicates you
are osteopenic which is the precursor to
osteoporosis, while a T-score of -2.5 or below
is considered osteoporotic. For some, the first
indication of low bone density is a fracture.
For others, it could be the results following a
DEXA scan ordered by their physician. Numerous
risk factors can increase the likelihood of a
fracture. Some of these risk factors are within
your control, some are not.

addition to age, factors that increase the risk
of osteoporosis may include:
Genetics or family
Low body weight (BMI)
Low dietary calcium
Vitamin D insufficiency
History of cancer
History of excessive

optimizes your ability to create
osteogenic loading, which results in
increased bone density and stronger
muscles. Forces generated during
osteogenic loading trigger the body's
own natural ability to increase its bone
density. The concept of osteogenic
loading has been reported in the
scientific literature since the 1800’s
with the work of Dr. Julius Wolff.
osteogenic loading exercise helps
maintain and rebuild bony structure.
Prior to osteogenic loading technology
and the bioDensity system, physicians
had few options other than to prescribe
medications to combat osteoporosis and
osteopenia. The non-pharmaceutical
bioDensity system enables you to
generate a brief but adequate force on
your musculoskeletal system, resulting
in bone remodeling. These adaptive
responses are perfectly natural, and the
results are both real and measurable.
