The Science Behind OsteoStrong
At OsteoStrong, we’ve put into practice what leading scientists have known for decades: If muscles achieve their maximum limit or threshold, if only for a brief moment, the body will have a natural adaptive response that will “turn on a switch” to signal the body to add new muscle fibers. This is the same training principle that the Romanian athletes used in the 1970’s that helped them win Olympic gold.
Here’s a basic view of a muscle cell.
These are myofibrils, also know as muscle fibers. The most significant strength of a muscle comes from the muscle fibers. The human body makes muscle fibers easily when we are young and growing, but that generally stops for most of us at about the age of 18.
If you ever lifted weights at a gym, you may have felt your muscles pump-up right afterwards. The reason is that when you lift weights, you actually cause small tears and damage to the muscle fibers. This is why you feel sore days afterwards. As a defense mechanism to this inflammation, the brain responds by creating sarcoplasm to the muscle cells to help create a cushion that protects them from more tearing as we cope with the pain and soreness associated with days of recovery.
The sarcoplasm is the cytoplasm of a muscle fiber. It is a water solution (fluid) containing ATP and phosphagens, as well as the enzymes and intermediate and product molecules involved in many metabolic reactions.

OsteoStrong Increases Muscle Strength
Increased muscle strength only comes from hours of effort, week after week in the gym, right? Not quite.
At OsteoStrong, you can expect to get stronger muscles, not bigger muscles.
We’ve discovered that there’s a more scientific way to achieving increased muscle strength, and it delivers positive results for virtually everyone who uses the OsteoStrong system. Improvements in strength have been experienced by thousands of people of all ages. Best of all, results are generally achieved quickly and without soreness or fatigue.
Take a look at the results that athletes are achieving with the OsteoStrong system.
OsteoStrong Increases Bone Health
The OsteoStrong system is also ideal for Seniors, people with osteoporosis, and other individuals who want to keep their bones healthy and strong.
“Wolff’s Law,” a biological law that was discovered by German surgeon, Dr, Julius Wolff, has been studied for decades; it teaches us that bones will increase in strength when they experience the right amount of pressure. The OsteoStrong system is designed to have you place very brief but adequate pressure on your musculoskeletal system. The moment your body senses the right amount of stimulus, it can respond by actually growing new bone tissue naturally.
People using the OsteoStrong system (who have had bone DEXA scans within 12 months) have shown a 4 to 12% increase in bone density without the aid of medication. For example, Lynn H. in Houston, Texas, has been using the OsteoStrong system for six months coming into the center for one-7 minute session per week. After six months, her bone DEXA scan showed a 10.7% increase in bone density over her previous year’s DEXA scan. Lynn has never and will not take any bone medication.
Experts Endorse OsteoStrong’s bioDensity™ Program
Here are what two prominent physicians and healthcare professionals have to say about the effectiveness of the OsteoStrong system:
“OsteoStrong’s bioDensity™ machine is a very effective modality for improving endurance, strength, and bone mass. It’s a fast and efficient way of improving muscle and bone strength. It also provides a predictable and measured change in muscle and bone mass. Functional and daily activities improve with bioDensity™ training.”
“NASM recognizes that OsteoStrong’s bioDensity™ training represents a new, leading-edge approach to increase strength and bone density gains for the aging, sports performance, and de-conditioned markets. We are committed to working with Performance Health Systems to manage the evidence-based research process through accredited research institutions; both in the sports science and medical communities.”
Additional Medical Research – Supporting The Results of the OsteoStrong System
The Surgeon General states that increases in bone mineral density to prevent or reverse the effects of
osteoporosis are stimulated by maximum loading on the musculoskeletal system. Regular, proper use of the
OsteoStrong System enables the user to safely achieve such maximum loading, and therefore helps combat the
effects of osteoporosis.
