Each Bone Breaking device is configured for administration of the three-point bending method yielding biomechanical parameters including force, stiffness and energy necessary for break. Torsion, Tensile Strength, Compression and Wound Breaking techniques can also be performed using optional sensors and accessories. Computer software is included for data acquisition.
Used to analyze bone strength in studies associated with:
- Age-related Bone Loss
- Hormone Replacement Therapy
- Weight-Bearing Exercise
- Vitamin Deficiency
