Biomechanical Osteoporosis Therapy with Vital Impulses
This method was developed in cooperation with NASA, the American space agency, in order to counteract muscle and bone degeneration in astronauts who may experience periods of weightlessness.
By now, what is called Juvent Dynamic Motion Therapy is used successfully for patients with osteoporosis. The patient stands on a gently vibrating platform, which automatically adapts to the user. Soft impulses gently stimulate even the smallest muscles and bone cells, encouraging them to build up. The patient does not experience this therapy as strong shaking but rather as slight vibrations passing through his body.
