Mechanical loading increases and maintains bone mass and strength. Daily stress stimulus and osteogenic index theories have been suggested to describe the osteogenic potential of exercise, using exponential or logarithmic relationships, respectively, between loading numbers and magnitude. Inspired by these theories, the aim of this study was to develop and test a daily impact score (DIS) using long-term continuous acceleration measurements of exercise. Acceleration data were collected during a… CONTINUE READING
