OsteoDx is developing instruments based on patent-pending Cortical Bone Mechanics Technology™ (CBMT) to help scientists measure what they could not measure before: accurate, non-invasive, direct functional measurements of structural mechanical properties of cortical bone in the ulnas of living people.

Our CBMT Scientific Instrument, SI-001 is now available for commercial purchase. Please contact us to inquire or place an order.

The mission of OsteoDx is to improve the targeting of medical care for the prevention of low-trauma fractures. In America, 1 in 2 women and 1 in 4 men over age 50 suffer such a fracture.  A quarter of hip fracture patients die within a year  and half are disabled in walking. The primary cause of these low-trauma fractures is osteoporosis.

OsteoDx is developing and commercializing Ohio University’s patent-pending Cortical Bone Mechanics Technology™ (CBMT) to enable better measurement of bone strength. The first product is a scientific laboratory instrument for researchers. This instrument is for scientific use only, and not for use in diagnostic procedures. OsteoDx will also develop CBMT as a non-invasive medical device to be submitted for approval by the FDA for improving the diagnosis and monitoring of osteoporosis and other bone diseases (this device is not cleared by the FDA for distribution in the United States).
