BeamMed Technology Now Being Used in Pilot Program in Collaboration with Quest Diagnostics and Walmart

More than 200 million people suffer from osteoporosis, which is a bone ailment that occurs as the body begins losing too much bone or is not producing enough bone. It has been estimated that 1 in 3 women over 50 years and 1 in 5 men will experience an osteoporotic fracture during their lives.

Many Americans may not be aware that they are at risk of having at least one osteoporotic fracture within their lifetimes, and at BeamMed, we aim to raise awareness about getting tested for bone density and improving osteoporosis care.

Groups that should get an osteoporosis screening as soon as possible are women over 65 years, women under 65 years who have gone through menopause and have a risk factor (low weight, excessive alcohol consumption, and so on), men over 70, and men over 70 who have lifestyle-related risk factors.

Pilot Program in Association with Quest Diagnostics and Walmart for Bone Screenings

BeamMed has collaborated with Quest Diagnostics and Walmart to launch a pilot program that will allow eligible older adults to get bone density screenings in three states within the US.

A bone mineral density (BMD) test is crucial for detecting signs of osteoporosis. The screenings are conducted with the help of BeamMed MiniOmni Portable Bone Densitometer.

The assessment examines and analyzes the level of risk an individual has for Osteoporosis-related fractures. The results will also provide a detailed explanation of the screening and an indication of your future fracture risk (ranging from low to high).

How BeamMed Technology Contributes

BeamMed helps by providing the MiniOmni Portable Bone Densitometer, which helps assessments for osteoporosis be non-invasive and safe for everyone. The ultrasound technology checks your risk for osteoporosis at a time that is convenient for you.

The unique Sunlight MiniOmni has proven accuracy when it comes to detecting osteoporosis risk and provides a fast diagnosis with WHO-compliant T-scores. Its small and compact design makes it ideal to be used by doctors whether they’re at a clinic or a retail venue.

The MiniOmni is suitable for all adults up to 99 years and creates easily understandable graphical measurement reports for both the individual and physician in a matter of minutes.

Through BeamMed technology, detecting osteoporosis risk and getting the appropriate medical care an individual needs has become easier and more efficient.

Detect Your Risk of Osteoporosis-related Fractures

In most cases of osteoporosis, there are no clinical signs of the ailment until you have a fracture. Finding out that your bones are weaker and can put you at risk of living a decreased quality of life can be a shock.

Through the combined initiative of Walmart, Quest, and BeamMed, spreading awareness about the likelihood of reduced bone density at older ages, after pregnancy, menopause, and so on has increased. When you are sufficiently aware of your risk of having osteoporosis, you can be vigilant and receive in-depth consultation on the adequate care and lifestyle changes you need to make to combat osteoporosis.

BeamMed technology lets your physician have a better idea of your risk level and what you can do to make sure your lifestyle stays as regular as possible going forward. For more information please call 800-769-6808
