New Research Confirms bioDensity™ as a Safe Alternative to High Impact Activity in Rebuilding Bone Density

Performance Health Systems Shares New Osteoporosis Study Indicating a
Reduction in Bone Fractures for Older Adults who Use bioDensity

MÁLAGA, Spain–(BUSINESS WIRE)–At the World Congress on Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis and
Musculoskeletal Diseases, Performance
Health Systems
presented new research on April 17, 2016, revealing
that using the bioDensity™ system is a safe alternative to high impact
activity in rebuilding bone density in elderly osteoporosis patients.
The treatment ultimately can help in the prevention of bone fractures.


The study was presented by John Jaquish, PhD, chief science and
technology officer for Performance Health Systems and inventor of the
bioDensity osteogenic loading system, and Lynn Freeman, PhD, senior
scientist for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ PATH
Clinical Research Institute.

In the study, 100 individuals, average age of 74, experienced the high
impact weight “loading” therapy that only bioDensity offers. The
analysis showed:

  • An ability to exceed loading levels of eight multiples of body weight
    on average (the minimum level of relevance for bone growth is 4.2
    multiples of body weight)
  • A 14 percent average increase in bone density in both the hip and
    spine, which can result in fewer bone fractures that may occur due to
    accidental falls

The trial group from the study was able to endure slightly greater force
loads through their musculoskeletal systems than the postmenopausal
population studied in the recent Journal of Osteoporosis and Physical
Activity (JOPA) study published in late 2015.

“The results of this study indicate that bioDensity’s force loading
therapy is an effective way to simulate high impact activity without
risk of injury, helping to regenerate lost bone and prevent bone
fractures in osteoporosis patients,” says Jaquish.

The study adds to the existing research showing bioDensity as an
effective, safe and comfortable non-drug treatment to rebuild bone
density in osteoporosis patients.
