Bone Health

Strong Bones. It’s Vital.

Osteoporosis is the most common bone disease, currently afflicting 10 million Americans over the age of 50. A women's lifetime risk of a hip fracture equals her combined risk of breast cancer, stroke and heart attack.1,2,3,4 

We're providing the tools physicians need to help diagnose and treat weakened bones, so that millions of Americans may potentially avoid the physical, emotional and financial burdens associated with fragility fracture.
