Osteoporosis is a condition of the bones specific to their density. It occurs when you lose too much bone and/or make too little bone. As a result, your bones become weak and may break from a fall. About 54 million Americans have low bone mass, which means they are at increased risk for Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis actually means “porous bone.” If you look at healthy bone under a microscope, you’ll see that parts of it look like a honeycomb. If you have osteoporosis, the holes and spaces in the honeycomb are bigger than they are in healthy bone. Many people age 50 or older make a decision to have a bone density test.
In 2012, a study was published that showed that subjects had to experience at least 4.2 times their body weight in order to trigger the growth of healthy new bone tissue. At OsteoStrong, members easily experience 4 to 10 times their own body weight without injury or pain, triggering the development of healthy new bone tissue according to the 2012 study.
