Bone Exercise Monitor

A bone exercise monitor is an instrument which is used to measure and analyze the bone strengthening qualities of physical activity and to help in prevention of osteoporosis with physical activity and exercise.

The bone strengthening quality of physical exercise is very difficult to assess and monitor due to the great variability of intensity of exercise modes and individual differences in exercise patterns. Bone exercise monitors utilize accelerometers in measurement and the collected data is analyzed with a specially developed algorithm.

The bone is stimulated by the acceleration and deceleration forces also known as G-forces causing impacts on the body stimulating bone growth by adding new bone and by improving its architectural strength.

The Bone Exercise Monitor is worn on the hip during the daily chores or during exercise. The monitor measures the accelerations and decelerations of the body and analyzes the results. The daily (and weekly) achieved bone exercise is shown on the monitor's display.

Famous quotes containing the words monitor, bone and/or exercise:

    It is indeed typical that you Earth people refuse to believe in the superiority of any world but your own. Children looking into a magnifying glass, imagining the image you see is the image of your true size.
    —Franklin Coen. Joseph Newman. The Monitor (Douglas Spencer)

    Osteopath—One who argues that all human ills are caused by the pressure of hard bone upon soft tissue. The proof of his theory is to be found in the heads of those who believe it.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    Children in home-school conflict situations often receive a double message from their parents: “The school is the hope for your future, listen, be good and learn” and “the school is your enemy. . . .” Children who receive the “school is the enemy” message often go after the enemy—act up, undermine the teacher, undermine the school program, or otherwise exercise their veto power.
    James P. Comer (20th century)
