Fragility Fractures are Common, Expensive, and Dangerous
For women, fractures are responsible for more hospitalizations than heart attacks, strokes, and breast cancer combined.
Better identification and higher treatment rates could prevent more than 6 million by 2040 – creating medical and societal cost savings of more than $65 billion.

A staggering percentage of adults over 50 will experience a fragility fracture. A full 30% of seniors over 60 who break a hip will die within 1 year.
Current diagnostics do not accurately identify patients who are at risk for a fracture.
Our Cortical Bone Mechanics Technology™ (CBMT) Device Measures Cortical Bone Stiffness
OsteoDx measures 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.
