The Science of OsteoStrong
OsteoStrong is a muscular-skeletal strengthening and rehabilitation system appropriate for all ages and conditioning levels.
A proprietary protocol combining two different non-invasive technologies – The OsteoStrong system and Vibration Plate– the patent System is designed to improve your bone density, muscle strength, balance, coordination, and stability regardless of your age or conditioning level.
OsteoStrong has developed protocols that enable this system to be used for increased bone density, injury, sports and surgery rehabilitation and fitness. The one visit a week for 7 minutes, no sweat no soreness system has stopped or reversed osteoporosis / osteopenia and had an incredible life changing impact on individuals living with degenerative discs, Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia and various other conditions or injuries.
How OsteoStrong Works
The OsteoStrong System represents a scientific breakthrough in physical conditioning. Increased muscle power, postural control, and a positive effect on bone density are just some of the benefits of the OsteoStrong System.
OsteoStrong uses a biomechanically efficient system that improves strength and bone mineral density (BMD) through maximum intensity, short duration neuro-musculoskeletal stimulation (NMS). The system consists of four simple yet comprehensive isometric exercises. The user creates a maximum isometric load.
This differs from traditional exercise that affects primarily the sarcoplasm. This system targets primarily myofibril (muscle “cables” within the sarcoplasm) development and safe maximum-skeletal loading. The equipment precisely measures, tabulates and records user force output 5 to 15 seconds via patented load cell/software interface throughout each session. All physical efforts are recorded, compared and contrasted over time. Each user receives a Performance Report at the conclusion of each training session.
Vibration Plate Whole Body Vibration
The human body has natural reflexes such as the eye-lid reflex, the touch reflex and the stretch reflex. The stretch reflex is what occurs when a doctor taps your knee with a hammer, this causes a reflex that extends the leg.
Vibration Plate induces a continuous special stretch reflex called the Tonic Vibration Reflex in all involved muscles. The special vibrating platform causes minute stretches within the muscles, which activate Tonic Vibration Reflexes. Because Vibration Plate platforms vibrate between 30 to 50 times per second, these involuntary muscle contractions happen at the same speed.
Not only do your muscles contract and relax at very high speed, but also the amount of muscle fibers in every single muscle involved exceeds the amount of muscle tissue utilized in regular training.
For most people who perform conventional strength training, a maximum of 40% of the muscle fibers per muscle are recruited at any one time. Vibration Plate recruits between 95-97% of the muscle fibers. This also means that the deeper postural and stabilizing muscles that are typically hard to contract and train can be stimulated.
Vibration Plate changes the frequency of contraction instead of the force applied to the muscle. This produces much less strain on the joints, ligaments and muscles without long exhausting sessions. Most patients feel immediate results. It is safe for almost all patient conditions when applied correctly.
Most dramatic, however, are the results. The system measures and tracks each workout and produces a complete printed report after each session. Indeed, the system that OsteoStrong implements measured four years of testing on clients performing more than 100,000 sets of exercises. The average client age was 52. After the first year, clients saw, on average, a 73% measurable gain in muscle strength. By the second year, the gain had jumped to 138%. By the fourth year, clients saw a 295% improvement in muscle strength – an astonishing achievement that is difficult for traditional workouts to match.
What is Osteogenic Loading?
Based on the science of Wolff’s law (the theory demonstrating bone adaptation to applied pressure), Osteogenic loading is the self-compression of bone mass at an optimal biomechanical position. In short, you are applying pressure on your bones so they compress. By doing this your bones respond by getting denser and stronger. Once a week therapy session utilizes technology to target and stimulate all the major long bones of the body and safely supply the intensity required to stimulate each individual’s body to naturally increase bone and muscle tissue density. Regular use essentially improves the structure of the body, the building blocks of movement and function for increased quality of life.
