The study demonstrated that bioDensity was an excellent additional therapeutic intervention, to the usual treatment for Type 2 Diabetes, in patients with elevated Hemoglobin A1c. Furthermore, bioDensity had a positive impact on the Cardiac Risk Profile (Cholesterol, LDL and HDL) regardless of the A1C levels.

Subjects were 15 females ranging in age from 56-84 who had completed at least 48 out of 52 bioDensity sessions in a year. Eleven of the subjects demonstrated significant improvement in their DEXA values, 2 had no change and 2 had further decreases in BMD.

This same study documents the viability of safely loading low BMI patients to stimulate bone growth because of their ability to create the necessary multiples of body weight loading
Derek Smith, Judge, S., Malone, A., Moynes, R., Conviser, J. and Skinner. Journal of Aging and Physical Activity, 2016, 24, 139-148.
Subjects 85-93 years old showed significant improvement using Power Plate and bioDensity in walking speed, walking distance, balance, standing, sitting, walking up stairs and down stairs – all activities of daily living. Strength increased 22-51%

This study highlights the benefit of exercise with bioDensity closely mimics the strength gains found in traditional exercise, but with a much shorter exposure time.
Chelsea Slagowski, Dixson, S., Moynes, R., Skinner, J. and Smith, D. Presented at the European Sport Science Congress, 2015.
There was a 5.8% reduction in A1c following 24 weeks of bioDensity exercise treatments. Low density lipoproteins (LDL) were significantly reduced and High density lipoproteins (HDL) were significantly increased.

A relationship was demonstrated between the magnitude of multiple of body weight loading with positive changes in bone mineral density
Sarah Dixson, Slagowski, C., Moynes, R., and Smith, D. Presented at the European Sport Science Congress, 2015.
Significant improvements in the cardiac risk profile were observed, in addition to improvements in FIM scores (functional independent movement)
C. Huck and Jaquish J., Osteoporosis International, Volume 26, Supplement 1, March (2015) S391-S392.
Subjects required approximately 3-9 times body weight loading to generate changes in bone mineral density
Derek Smith, Shawn S., Rockney, R., Moynes, C., Skinner, J. and Conviser, J.
Significant improvements were documented in diastolic BP, VO2, shuttle run, push-ups, sit-ups and hamstring flexibility, however 12 weeks was insufficient time to document changes in bone mineral density.

Both osteoporotic and osteopenic female subjects improved BMD following 24 weeks of training.

The force production curve seen with traditional resistance training is similar with the force production curve seen with bioDensity, although the forces produced with bioDensity were greater.

A1C levels were reduced from 6.37 to 5.81 over a 24 week period using bioDensity

This study shows strength, balance, activities of dialing living can be significantly improved when they would participate once a week for 10 minutes at a time
Presented at the Medical Fitness Association meeting showing significant improvements in both left and right side standard balance test after 24 weeks of bioDensity training as well as significant improvements in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

This poster was first used to explain what bioDensity was as a modality and how it was similar (and different) than traditional resistance training in terms of forces produced.
Improvements in strength with bD following the same force production curves we see with traditional lifting. No reported injuries with mature individuals
