Cooler Solutions and Leading Research Hospital to Design Revolutionary Osteoporosis Diagnosis Device
Date:9/24/2007

New medical technology promises increase in accuracy and availability of

bone fracture screening

TORONTO, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Cooler Solutions, a product innovation company specializing in health and wellness solutions, announced they are developing components for a new bone testing device which will revolutionize bone fracture risk assessment.

In conjunction with top researchers at Toronto's University Health Network (UHN) Cooler Solutions will design components and implement construction of a new device for measuring bone strength in osteoporosis patients. The mechanical response tissue analyzer (MRTA) will offer a more accurate and cost-effective way to diagnose and prevent osteoporosis. The MRTA is a portable and noninvasive device designed to measure the mechanical properties of bone (bone stiffness and elasticity) and to quantify bone "toughness." This new technology was initially developed by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to test the bone strength of astronauts at risk of losing bone mass during space flight.

Osteoporosis is a serious disease characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of bone tissue. It is estimated that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men over the age of 50 have osteoporosis worldwide.

Working together with key stakeholders at UHN, designers and engineers at Cooler Solutions will develop the existing MRTA technology into a user- -friendly, cost-effective and commercially viable product. Cooler will work on improving product performance, accuracy and enhancing the user and operator experience. Through Cooler's ethnographic user-focused research, patient and operator experiences with the device will drive solutions in the final design.

"Cooler Solutions is excited to be working on a technology with the potential to revolutionize the osteoporosis diagnostic area. We are working towards a day when this device can more accurately tell patients how lik
