WHAT IS OSTEOSTRONG?
OsteoStrong is a membership-based Integrative Health and Wellness Center with a focus on Musculoskeletal Strengthening.
The four device circuit takes only minutes once per week to complete. Under the direction of a skilled technician, users engage in a safe controlled movement on each device that results in a stimulus to the central nervous system triggering osteogenesis or new bone growth.
Each device provides instant biofeedback with a member’s impact emulation
Force exertion measured in pounds and multiples of body weight.
Data is recorded and a report is sent to the member detailing their progress at the conclusion of each session.
Bisphosphonates are generally the first line of defense for patients diagnosed with osteoporosis. Unfortunately, the risk of side effects can make this a complicated decision.
Until now there were few exercise-based non- pharmaceutical options that offered significant increases in bone density in a safe manner for even the most high-risk patients.
OsteoStrong offers a highly effective, evidence-based musculoskeletal strengthening program that can be used to compliment pharmaceutical treatment and as a preventative protocol.
The greatest effect on bone strength and health is the result of high-impact activity, and hundreds of studies have confirmed this, even identifying the minimum dose of force required through bone as being over 4 times bodyweight in the hip joint .
As adults, impact becomes associated with injury therefore adults intentionally avoid impact and thus even those who engage in exercise often fail to maintain bone health.
OsteoStrong utilizes a series of robotic musculoskeletal treatment devices utilizing high impact emulation, so that people can get the benefit of impact without the associated risks, providing a physical medicine option that has no side effects.

Loading seen in OsteoStrong sessions often exceeds 8 multiples of body weight, which is why bone density growth is so rapid (2,3,4). These forces also trigger changes in muscular density, as well as the thickness the tendons and ligaments which can improve biomechanics, posture and reduce joint pain.

THE OSTEOSTRONG TECHNOLOGY:
OUR PATENT-PENDING SPECTRUM SYSTEM
OsteoStrong uses the Spectrum System to deliver unprecedented results. Spectrum is first-in-class of a new category devices called Robotic Musculoskeletal Development System (RMDS).
Spectrum was invented by the Father of Osteogenic Loading, Dr. John Jaquish, Ph.D. Dr. Jaquish is the Chief Science Advisor for OsteoStrong and author of Osteogenic Loading. Dr. Jaquish has been a frequent speaker at the World Congress on Osteoporosis and is on the board of American Bone Health. His contributions to the OsteoStrong brand have been invaluable in bringing this technology to the world.
