Just recently, one of the leading new manufacturers of medical devices, Bone Index, Ltd partnered with Lifeline Screening. This was meant to bring together the latest bone density screening to the consumers in America through the community-based screening events normally held by Lifeline Screening. It is a known fact that osteoporosis that is left undiagnosed is a worldwide challenge. According to studies, osteoporosis results to over 2 million broken bones each year in the United States alone. This is estimated to cost more than $19 billion in treatment. Statistics show that the cost will go up to $25.3 billion by 2015. The inadequate accessibility of diagnostics of osteoporosis is among the biggest problems given that the scans for bone density are carried out in hospitals that have huge DXA X-ray devices and this translates to higher costs.

Ossi Riekkinen who is the CEO of Bone Index stated that the Bindex is going to bring a lot of changes and revolution in treating osteoporosis. Kelly Daubach who is the VP of Business Development in Lifeline Screening said that this partnership with Bone Index will help them in bringing bone density screenings to consumers which are more convenient and accurate. Lifeline Screening offered wellness and health services to almost 15,000 screening events across the United States. This includes ultrasound screenings for bone density and vascular disease. This new screening service has made lifeline Screening the leading company when it comes to the most accurate and safe screening for osteoporosis. The device for bone index measures the thickness of the cortical bone of the tibia while the algorithm calculates the Bone Density Index. Bindex has 19 patents internationally which include Japan, China, US as well as large European countries.
