BeamMed MiniOmni – The Importance of Early Osteoporosis Diagnosis And Monitoring
February 16, 2017
Osteoporosis is a condition that diminishes the strength of your bones, making them brittle and prone to fractures. About 54 percent of women 50 years of age and above suffer from osteoporosis and live with the risk of acquiring an osteoporosis-related fracture. It threatens the quality of life of millions of people all over the world.
Besides the pain, discomfort, and mobility issues, there is more reason to fear the risk of a fracture. For instance, the risk of hip fracture alone is equal to the risk of developing a combination of cancers of the uterus, the ovary, and the breast. Sadly, up to 24 percent of women who receive a hip fracture die within a year.
When it comes to osteoporosis, diagnosis and monitoring make a huge difference on how the disease affects your life. For this reason, early diagnosis is really essential. As soon you know that you have it, you can get treatment right away. You can then work on increasing bone density and reducing the risk of fracture.
Today’s technologies fortunately provide us with a compact and affordable solution for early assessment and monitoring of the disease in the Sunlight MiniOmni by BeamMed. Since early diagnosis and ongoing monitoring are necessary in the management of the disease, this device provides great value to osteoporosis patients everywhere.
No bigger and heavier than a hardcover book, the Sunlight MiniOmni is extremely compact and portable. It allows rapid, radiation-free osteoporosis diagnosis and monitoring. It connects via USB to a computer, allowing patient assessment in a matter of minutes. Its use is perfect for doctor’s offices, medical clinics, check-up centres, pharmacies, and other retail venues.
