Clinical studies

Muscle and bone form a functional unit. Therefore, measurement of bone density and strength using peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT) and muscle diagnostics with Leonardo force platform provide indispensable tools in clinical and preclinical research for the investigation of musculo-skeletal relationships. Important physically relevant parameters provide new information for laboratory and practice.

Our emphasis in the field of clinical research:
