Mobility & Disability Products for Osteoporosis
In Australia, over 1 million individuals are affected by Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a disease of the bone that occurs when the body either loses vital minerals or does not produce enough or in some cases, both. Lacking the vital building blocks that provide density, bones will become weak and brittle, increasing the risk of breaking from falls and in extreme cases from small bumps or even sneezes. Treatment can include calcium and vitamin D supplements, exercise and specific osteoporosis medicines.
