Inhibition of osteopenia by low magnitude, high-frequency mechanical stimuli.

Abstract

The identification of anabolic agents for the treatment of metabolic bone disease is a highly prized, and elusive, goal. In searching for the osteogenic (bone-producing) constituents within mechanical stimuli, it was determined that high frequency (10-100 Hz) and low magnitude (<10 microstrain) stimuli were capable of augmenting bone mass and morphology… (More)
