Early Adopter Program
Measure The Mechanical Properties of Cortical Bone in Living People
Proprietary Cortical Bone Mechanics Technology™ makes accurate noninvasive, direct, functional measurements of structural mechanical properties (mass, stiffness, and damping) and calculates the quality factor Q, flexural rigidity (EI) and bending strength (Mpeak) of ulnar cortical bone.
CBMT Scientific Instruments
CBMT™ Model SI-001 Series is now available for order from OsteoDx.
Partner with us for key new studies with highly accurate, reproducible measures of bone strength
Measure what could not be measured before in living humans
Not a Medical Device
OsteoDx instruments and accessories are not medical devices and are not intended for the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease
Results indistinguishable from Quasistatic Mechanical Testing (QMT)
Rapid reproducible results
CBMT devices well suited for research studies because of ease of operation and consistency of results
CBMT Dynamic mechanical analysis ‘sees through’ skin to the bone underneath
Our Cortical Bone Mechanics Technology™
Two product lines for two markets: Scientific Instruments and Medical Devices
Ohio University IRB Approved
- CBMT scientific instrument for scientific research
- CBMT medical device for non-significant risk medical research
Mechanical Bending Test
CBMT device performs a non-invasive dynamic mechanical bending test of the mid-shaft of the ulna.
Mechanical Vibration Analysis
Direct functional measures of the mass, stiffness, and damping of cortical bone in living persons
Measures whole bone structure, including protein and mineral
CBMT employs proprietary improvements to Mechanical Response Tissue Analysis (MRTA)
Intended for Research Use
OsteoDx's Cortical Bone Mechanics™ instrument SI-001 is suited for investigations of the mechanical integrity of cortical bone in the ulnas of living human subjects (and in cadavers).
Examples of research studies using CBMT™ include:
Observational studies comparing cortical bone mechanics in demographic groups and monitoring changes in cortical bone mechanics over time;
Experimental studies investigating local effects of mechanical loading (i.e., exercise) and systemic effects of nutrition, nutriceutical and pharmaceutical agents.
Basic research in bone biology relating to osteoporosis and other systemic bone diseases and health
