Developed by renowned Professor of Medicine – U.C.L.A., Dr. Robert L. Swezey, M.D., OsteoBall® Bone Fitness Exerciser is a breakthrough method of helping your body to build new bone mass. OsteoBall makes use of isometric-resistive exercise and the principle that by contracting the places on the body where muscle attaches to bone for 5 seconds is more than sufficient to help stimulate the formation of new bone mass.
The OsteoBall is a specially engineered exercise device. It has been awarded United States and international patents. The science behind the OsteoBall is backed by extensive, clinical studies, showing maximum results are achieved with only 5 second muscle contractions. Contracting the muscles with OsteoBall for a count of five is all that is needed!
This is not hype. It is backed by over 40 years of solid scientific study conducted in America and in Europe.
Ten key muscle areas in the upper and lower body are targeted. This means that not only is bone mass helped to be formed, but muscles are toned too. At just 5 seconds per exercise the entire body can be worked out in under ten minutes.
The studies are in – and more keep coming. The OsteoBall® and its technique of progressive resistive isometric exercise is the most effective exercise means known for helping to promote the formation of new bone. The OsteoBall is a welcome and exciting breakthrough — for all of us concerned about helping ourselves and our loved ones to prevent the hollow, brittle bones that come from osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis patients using an isometric-resistive ball program (OsteoBall®) shows bone stimulation and indications of new bone formation within 2 months, helping reverse bone loss. These are the findings of research conducted by Dr. Robert L. Swezey, M.D., Clinical Professor of Medicine – U.C.L.A., using the most exacting of current tests (blood serum test), for making this determination. The research provides the basis for a “next generation” of osteoporosis exercises. Ones that are extremely quick (requiring only a five second muscle contraction), easy to do at home or traveling, and effective in building bones and strengthening muscles.
The OsteoBall is so easy to use, so quick, and effective – it is hard to believe. But the years of solid, authoritative research internationally,
combined with the clinical studies and medical knowledge that support the technique and results tell you this is a product that is “for real” and it works.
The OsteoBall® is the result of over half a decade of clinical research and intensive design & engineering efforts by Cequal Products in cooperation with The Swezey Institute. Cequal and The Swezey Institute work together to combine medical and scientific knowledge and research with innovative design and materials in the creation of new and meaningful products for an emerging area of health & wellness to which we have given the name: “Posture Fitness”. Cequal’s line of other posture fitness products, videos and books can be viewed at www.cequal.com and www.swezeyinstitute.com.
