Stratec 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.
