DEXA Bone Densitometry Device
Bone density scanner Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become weak and are more likely to break. People with osteoporosis most often break bones in the hip, spine, and wrist. In the United States, millions of people either already have osteoporosis or are at high risk due to low bone mass. Osteoporosis can occur in both men and women and at any age, but it is most common in older women.
What is a DEXA Bone Density Scan? Several methods are available to measure bone density, but currently the most widely used technique is DEXA (Dual Energy Xray Absorptiometry). This is the method used to determine efficacy in the recent large clinical trials, and to characterize fracture risk in large epidemiological studies.

Current Examples of the product
New design based on users need In this design instead of asking from users to move their body or change their body position, the scanner would move and position the body in the right posture. This design makes the scanning process easier for both operator and patient. The goal of this design is to follow user-centered perspective and effectively respond to users needs. Also in this design the position of the beam source has been moved to the top and can be adjusted based on the body and scanner position. This would decrease the unnecessary movements of patient and provide a more comfortable experience for the user.
