Osteoporosis is becoming a significant concern for people around the globe. There are about 44 million people with either osteoporosis or with low bone mass in the U.S. alone. The traditional methods of detecting osteoporosis through heavy, immobile devices are not only inaccurate, but patients who have difficulty in walking have to go to the clinics for tests.
Both of these problems are now solved with the Sunlight MiniOmni portable scanner developed by Beammed. The scanner is not only extremely accurate, but it also leverages radiation free, non-invasive technology making it completely safe for a human body.
The most significant benefit of using Sunlight MiniOmni is its portability. Doctors can take the scanner with them to wherever they go and is ideal for use in any physician office, medical clinic, pharmacy, retail venue or annual checkup center. In addition, The MiniOmni is suitable for people ranging from premature babies to 99 years old elders with precise measurements.
The device utilizes quantitative ultrasound technology (QUS) that sends ultrasonic waves that propagate along the bone and provide precise results. It indicates the overall bone’s strength by reflecting the properties such as elasticity, mineral density, cortical thickness, and even microstructure. Furthermore, it eliminates the soft tissue thickness effects and is also not influenced by the size of the bone.
MiniOmni provides rapid results in the form of graphical measurements with WHO compliant T-score and Z-score that are widely used to detect osteoporosis. The best part of using MiniOmni is that it has no disposables resulting in nearly zero cost of operation. Furthermore, its lightweight, compact design and convenient case make it easy to carry. The MiniOmni operates on a windows based system with a USB connectivity feature making it connectable to any PC and laptop.
Currently, MiniOmni is the only portable and handheld device for testing bone density thanks to Beammed’s advanced technology and efficient use of compact hardware architecture. Beammed is known to provide low-cost systems, and it has done the same with the MiniOmni and other OmniSense devices to help medical practitioners get faster and accurate results at low costs.
“The only handheld bone density screening device currently on the market.”
