Stratec Medizintechnik

web-stragalStratec Medizintechnik is the world’s most successful producer of pQCT-based bone densitometry scanners. Results are presented in real density units (g/cm³). Additionally geometrical properties of bone can be analysed which allow the estimation of mechanical properties. The combined analysis of muscle and bone allows differentiation of disuse osteopenia from true osteoporosis.

The sister company Novotec Medical is manufacturer of Galileo vibration training devices for muscle stimulation and of Leonardo motion analysis systems (mechanography). The side alternating technology employs a natural movement similar to human gait. Improvement of muscle function, treatment of back pain and immobility are typical fields of application.

Kyowa Hakko Kirin

xhl_corporate_logo_vertical_k_rgbKyowa Hakko Kirin (KHK) is a biopharmaceutical company focusing on its core business area of oncology, nephrology, and immunology/allergy. KHK discovered KRN23, an investigational fully human monoclonal antibody administered via subcutaneous injection designed to bind and thereby reduce the excess biological activity of FGF23. KHK formed a collaboration with Ultragenyx to jointly develop KRN23 for the treatment of X-Linked Hypophosphatemia (XLH), a rare genetic metabolic bone disease, and Tumor- Induced Osteomalacia (TIO). Ultragenyx is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company committed to bringing to market novel products for the treatment of rare and ultra-rare diseases, with a focus on serious, debilitating genetic diseases.


1006-3-faxitron-logoFaxitron is the pioneer and continues to be the most used brand in cabinet X-ray.
