Research has shown that activities that involve impact level force/loading are most useful for increasing or maintaining bone mass 1. bioDensity places the user/patient in positions of optimal biomechanics, which then can allow for loading that is multiples of bodyweight, these loads are near or equal to the levels seen in impact loading 2. User/patient DXA Scans have shown BMD (g/cm2) measures in osteopenic/osteoporotic subjects significantly increase at an average of 7.02 to 14.9% in the hip and 7.73 to 16.6% in the spine within one year of treatment 3,4. This level of effect is beyond what is normally seen with the conventional standard of care. Further, similar functional bone performance adaptations were seen by researchers in 2380 subjects 5, as well as implications for muscle density manifested in HbA1c reductions 6.
