We develop, manufacture and market bone density assessment solutions. In particular, we lead the market with advanced ultrasound technology and devices that enable physicians to provide early assessment, diagnosis and monitoring of osteoporosis and to assess bone development. Thousands of our devices are in use in clinics, physician offices, research centers, hospitals, check-up centers and pharmacies around the world.
Our devices are based on our patented Omnipath™ axial transmission technology, a quantitative ultrasound technology that has been proven as an effective screening tool for osteoporosis which improves HEDIS measures, allowing reaching 5-stars rating for HEDIS OMW. Measurement using our Omnisense and MiniOmni is reimbursed in the USA and other countries.
Addressing a Widespread Health Problem – Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a progressive systemic skeletal disease that is accepted as a major public health problem, with huge associated cost. Osteoporosis-related fractures increase dramatically with age and they often cause rapid deterioration in health, resulting in death. According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), hundreds of millions of people worldwide are affected by osteoporosis – about 80% are women.
Osteoporosis cannot be reversed. However, it can be effectively managed by early diagnosis of bone mass loss and by prevention of further loss. Although early assessment is key, the IOF estimates that more than 70% of the people at risk of osteoporosis have never been diagnosed or screened – signifying a pressing need for easy, cost-effective and safe early assessment tools.
Pioneering Early Assessment of Bone density
As the first – and currently only – devices that enable ultrasound-based, multi-site measurement for early assessment and monitoring of osteoporosis, the Sunlight product-line overcomes the cost and radiation exposure-related challenges of Dual X-ray Absorption technology (DXA). High accuracy, small size, ease of use, reliability, excellent affordability, and radiation-free operation mean that our systems can easily and safely be used in any doctors office, clinic, HMO or retail venue such as pharmacies and checkup centers.
