Bone Strength Can Be Improved Without Side Effects

Introducing OsteoBoost, the first vibration belt specifically designed to improve bone strength and bone density.

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

Introducing OsteoBoost

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.

CLINICAL RESEARCH

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.

Bone Mineral Density in Women Over Time

There are over 1 million hip and spine fractures each year due to osteopenia and osteoporosis

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 and the same order of magnitude as first-line osteoporosis medication.

GREAT EARLY INTERVENTION

OsteoBoost can be used safely during osteopenia whereas medications are used typically for osteoporosis.

HIGH COMPLIANCE

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. 

Compliance

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.

STEP 1

Simply press power and it begins the gentle vibration treatment.

STEP 2

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.
