Crain's Chicago Business | Can this exercise machine reverse osteoporosis?

bioDensity was featured today in a Crain's article "Can this exercise machine reverse osteoporosis?". The piece tells the story of Elly Laser who needed treatment for osteoporosis. Elly tried the standard regimen, oral biphosphates, but couldn't tolerate them. A yearly infusion of the medicine was prescribed, but Laser couldn't fathom injecting a biphosphate into her body. While searching for a non drug osteoporosis treatment, she found Ascend CHC's bioDensity clinic in her Streeterville neighborhood and began weekly bioDensity sessions. Ascend CEO Jason Conviser is so convinced that osteogenic loading works that he offers a money-back guarantee after one year.

After seven months of treatment, Elly's scans show her condition "has moved from osteoporosis, which could kill her, to osteopenia, which she can live with and even go tango dancing."

Springpoint - A Culture of Wellness

Performance Health Systems conducted a 12-week trial focused on 60 men and women in their early 80’s and studied the effects of using bioDensity and Power Plate on strength (force production), balance, and functional independence at Springpoint Senior Living facilities. The results were decidedly impressive and included:

  • Significant increases in force production
  • Increase of 47-48% for chest press
  • Increase of 50-51% for leg press
  • Increase of 22-38% for vertical lift
  • Remarkable improvements in static and dynamic balance
  • Improved leg strength; reducing fall risk and incidence

The results from the study serve as an opportunity for any hospital-based fitness facility addressing the needs of older individuals who experience reduced strength, balance, and functional independence, thereby diminishing quality of life and increasing societal and individual health care costs. Power Plate and bioDensity provide effective, safe and lifestyle accommodating interventions to minimize or reverse many common issues associated with aging.

bioDensity on Chicago's Fox-32

bioDensity was featured during the health segment of Chicago's Fox-32 Midday news show. The segment focused on the origin of bioDensity, and how Dr. John Jaquish developed the first device to treat his mother's osteoporosis. After reversing her condition, now bioDensity helps thousands of people worldwide.

Location Testimonials

"Using optimal biomechanics and loading bones through compression, osteogenic loading response (bone growth) is stimulated and ultimately improves. My patients are in control during the entire session and are never forced to strain – it is at their pace, and comfort level. I have seen my patients improve bone density over 8% in one year, which is a gain that is unparalleled with any other modality used in clinical practice today."


Kevin Hall, MD, FAARFM
General Surgery

"In my practice, we use bioDensity as a part of an all encompassing wellness program that includes dietary recommendations and other modalities. Patients see the documented benefits of osteogenic loading on their bioDensity performance reports which enhances compliance. Patients enjoy coming back every week for the osteogenic loading experience, which is fast, safe, and convenient, but most of all they know they are improving their bone health, and general health without the concerns of pharmacological side effects. The psychology of using bioDensity is profound because the patient really sees how they can be put in control of a large aspect of their health, which will provide benefit for the rest of their lives."


Warren Ross, MD
Double board certified,
Internal Medicine and Geriatric Medicine

"The real-world musculoskeletal benefits of the bioDensity device and osteogenic loading on strength, coordination, balance and subsequently confidence are nothing short of astonishing. The drug-free, osteogenic loading bone density benefits are unique to the bioDensity device. As a surgeon, I foresee the bioDensity device improving my patients quality of life drastically. I studied medicine because I wanted to help people, and bioDensity has shown me how I can safely and cost effectively grow my practice and touch the lives of many more than I thought possible."


Jeffrey Bentson, MD

"bioDensity is a very effective modality for improving endurance, strength and bone mass. Its a fast and efficient way of improving muscle and bone strength. It also provides a predictable and measured change in muscle and bone mass. Functional and daily activities improve with bioDensity training."

"I was fortunate enough to be one of the initial 400 test subjects for Osteogenic Loading via the bioDensity Device. As a Physician I realized that the vast majority of the population should be using this technology to access the human bodys own natural process for creating bone mass, and building tremendous levels of muscular strength. I have always been involved with fitness, and have been an advocate of the curative nature of exercise, but no modality I have come across has the potential to change the lives of so many millions of people like this one. In my own personal use I saw a force production increase from my neuro-musculoskeletal system of 119% in thirty-two months. Others that I observed in the program had similar responses, along with improved bone mass density and posture."

"The BStrong4LIfe System combines bioDensity and Power Plate technology using a proprietary protocol that will create a paradigm shift in the medical community. Patients achieve unparalleled results using bioDensity. The ‘20 second advantage of BS4L will revolutionize your practice."

"I pay close attention to my patients progress and results and am more convinced every day that the decision to incorporate osteogenic loading with bioDensity has been extremely beneficial to my patients. After 6 months using bioDensity once a week, I have seen patients with bone density scans showing a remarkable 7% improvement."


Harvey Mishner, MD
Internal Medicine

"The principles of this bioDensity device are based on published research of mechano-transduction, meaning that loading of the body creates an adaptive response. This research has existed for over 100 years. The cleverness of the device was the level of loading the individual was able to receive while ina safe and controlled environment. Once learning about this device, I not only prescribed patients exercise/therapy sessions with it, but I also engaged in the use of the device myself. My personal use saw an increase in spinal density and maintenance in hip density within normal T-score range. The spine was osteopenic and was less so after bioDensity use. Equally important was that my full body force production capability increased by 169% in the eight months of using the osteogenic loading protocol, just one time, either weekly or bi-weekly. Since this initial experience I have seen other positive bone mass density outcomes with the use of this device, and I am excited to share my experience so other practitioners like me can use this knowledge with their patients."


Eleanor Hynote, MD
Internal Medicine
Former President of the American College for the Advancement of Medicine

"OsteoStrong: for people of all ages taking advantage of amazing results in a very short period of time. The simple technology is set to change the paradigm of how the world increases bone density, joint density, and posture with the once-a-week program that only takes a few minutes per session. Also, it doesn't leave people feeling sore or sweaty, this intervention is incredible and adult and aging populations."
