It enables reliable, accurate, non-invasive and safe monitoring of bone density at the point of care. Its small size and weight, intuitive ease of use, and convenient USB-port connectivity to Windows-based PCs and laptops make it ideal for use in any physician office or medical clinic, pharmacy, annual checkup center or other retail venue.
