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 – April 20, 2016 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 elderly 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.

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

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."
