Good vibrations: combating bone loss in space

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Recent research suggests that bone loss caused by microgravity and old age could be counteracted with daily exposure to low magnitude, high frequency mechanical stimulation. Potentially, this technique could inhibit bone loss during long-duration spaceflight and be an effective treatment for osteoporosis on Earth.
