We are looking for participants in a training study where the purpose is to compare two different training methods to strengthen the skeleton and improve balance and strength. We are researching the effects and perceptions of training with OsteoStrong compared to physical training in individuals at high fracture risk.

Who can apply

We are looking for women aged 65 to 79 years with or without a previous osteoporotic fracture. We are looking for women without ongoing treatment with osteoporosis drugs and who have not had treatment in the last five years. Treatment with calcium and vitamin D is allowed.

How the study is done

We have started to include study participants now. The study participants will be randomized to either train at OsteoStrong or in a group with training leaders. The training will take place 1-2 times/week for 9 months. The training is free and will be held in Stockholm.
