Ergonomics and psychology were sculpted into this bone scanner to ease patient anxiety and ensure that osteoporosis is detected and treated early. The scanner's core technology is more environmentally friendly than are competing technologies. X-ray exposure to doctor and patient are greatly reduced and polluting film chemistry is eliminated.

"This is such a non-threatening, simple and ergonomic design. The hand stage is wonderful… a round rubber platen with finger grooves that splay the patient's digits into the correct posture for imaging. It feels like a warm hand shake!" -Bryce Rutter, IDSA, Metaphase
