How does it work?
For improved bones, strength and balance, the bioDensity exercise programme at BioStrong is based on the principles of osteogenic loading.
Osteogenic loading is a brief, intensive resistance exercise, designed to stimulate the bone’s natural ability to increase its density. Osteogenic loading forces have been shown to help maintain or increase bone mass.
An estimated 1.5 million individuals suffer a fracture as a result of osteoporotic bones each year. BioDensity's osteogenic loading exercise helps preserve, rebuild, and recalcify bone structure.
Prior to the research on osteogenic loading technology and the bioDensity system, bisphosphonate medications were one of the few treatment options available for patients with osteoporosis and osteopenia. The non-pharmaceutical bioDensity system enables you to place a very brief but adequate pressure on your musculoskeletal system, signaling the body to add new bone and muscle tissue. These adaptive responses are perfectly natural, and the results are both real and measurable.
These “adaptive responses” occur when the self-applied force compresses the bone and then releases the compression. This mechanical and subsequent neuromuscular and chemical responses result in more nutrients and minerals being pulled into the bone to reinforce the bone structure. The result is the creation of a more dense bone matrix making the bone harder and less porous. It is the increase in bone density or increase in bone mineral that improves bone health and remedies bone health characteristic of osteopenia and osteoporosis.
What will I do in the bioDensity session?
During a weekly visit to the bioDensity office, you will complete four specialised “trigger events” monitored by a Personal Trainer to deliver the precise stimulus needed to improve bone mineral density. The force that you produce will be like pushing an object of significant weight and size in four different directions:
Forward using your hands
Forward using your feet
Upward using your knees
Upward using your legs, trunk and arms
BioDensity’s unique system allows adults of all ages to participate without causing pain, muscle soreness or fatigue. Each of the four osteogenic loading activities only takes a few seconds to complete, and the entire session will take 10 to 15 minutes. There’s no need to change into gym or workout attire.
