There is an Escalating Rate of Osteoporosis Despite 25 Years of Drug Treatment Options
1 in 2 women and 1 in 4 men over 50 will suffer a bone density related fracture

OsteoBoost is the first vibration belt specifically designed to improve bone strength and bone density.
SIMPLE YET EFFECTIVE
The OsteoBoost Vibration Belt applies gentle mechanical stimulation to the hips and spine to improve bone strength.
BASED ON NASA RESEARCH
Leveraging 15 years of published research (starting with NASA) proving that vibration at a precise amplitude and frequency stimulates bones, OsteoBoost delivers the optimal therapeutic dose directly to the most vulnerable anatomy, the hips and lumbar spine.
OsteoBoost has been studied in multiple National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded clinical trials, based on a successful pilot study that showed a significant reduction in bone turnover markers after just one treatment.
EASY AND CONVENIENT
Comfortable and as easy as putting on a belt, one 30-minute treatment per day while doing chores or walking the dog makes OsteoBoost easy to fit into any lifestyle.
The OsteoBoost Difference
REDUCTION IN BONE LOSS ACTIVITY
In a recently published study, OsteoBoost induced an acute reduction in bone loss activity as measured by the biomarker NTx (mean: 14%, p<0.001).
COMPARABLE TO MEDICATION AND EXERCISE
Study results are consistent with the effects of high-impact exercise.
GREAT EARLY INTERVENTION
OsteoBoost can be used safely during osteopenia whereas medications are used typically for osteoporosis.
Compliance is high at over 80%.
Treatment Compliance Rate
Current medication treatments are used by less than 10% of patients for whom they are indicated and have a high rate of treatment discontinuation.
OsteoBoost is easy and convenient to use, with high compliance and satisfaction ratings.
How It Works
The OsteoBoost Vibration Belt is as simple as 1-2-3, and includes an auto-shutoff feature that ends treatment after 30 minutes. Use daily or at least 4 days a week for full treatment effect.
Easy to attach velcro secures it around the waist.
Simply press power and it begins the gentle vibration treatment.
Once treatment beings, you can go about your business.

NASA Research Leads to Vibration Belt Technology
Developed from NASA proven technology, OsteoBoost takes vibration therapy to another level by delivering precise mechanical stimulation targeted to the areas of the body that need it most, the hips and spine.
