The Science of BStrong4Life®
BStrong4Life® is a muscular-skeletal strengthening and rehabilitation system appropriate for all ages and conditioning levels.
A proprietary protocol combining two different non-invasive technologies – bioDensity™ and Power Plate – the BStrong4Life® System is designed to improve your bone density, muscle strength, balance, coordination, and stability regardless of your age or conditioning level.
BStrong4Life®™ has developed protocols that enable this system to be used for increased bone density, injury, sports and surgery rehabilitation and fitness. When supervised by a medical professional, the BStrong4Life®™ System has positively affected osteoporosis/osteopenia, Parkinson’s disease, degenerative discs, Multiple Sclerosis and various other conditions or injuries.
How bioDensity™ Works
The bioDensity™ System represents a scientific breakthrough in physical conditioning. Increased muscle power, postural control, and a positive effect on bone density are just some of the benefits of bioDensity™.
bioDensity™ is a biomechanically efficient system that improves strength and bone mineral density (BMD) through maximum intensity, short duration neuro-musculoskeletal stimulation (NMS). The system consists of four simple yet comprehensive isometric exercises. The user creates a maximum isometric load.
This differs from traditional exercise that affects primarily the sarcoplasm. This system targets primarily myofibril (muscle “cables” within the sarcoplasm) development and safe articulo-skeletal loading. The equipment precisely measures, tabulates and records user force output 30x sec. via patented load cell/software interface throughout each session. All physical efforts are recorded, compared and contrasted over time. Each user receives a Performance Report at the conclusion of each training session.
Power Plate Whole Body Vibration
The human body has natural reflexes such as the eye-lid reflex, the touch reflex and the stretch reflex. The stretch reflex is what occurs when a doctor taps your knee with a hammer, this causes a reflex that extends the leg.
Power Plate induces a continuous special stretch reflex called the Tonic Vibration Reflex in all involved muscles. The special vibrating platform causes minute stretches within the muscles, which activate Tonic Vibration Reflexes. Because Power Plate platforms vibrate between 30 to 50 times per second, these involuntary muscle contractions happen at the same speed.
Not only do your muscles contract and relax at very high speed, but also the amount of muscle fibres in every single muscle involved exceeds the amount of muscle tissue utilized in regular training.
For most people who perform conventional strength training, a maximum of 40% of the muscle fibres per muscle are recruited at any one time. Power Plate recruits between 95-97% of the muscle fibres. This also means that the deeper postural and stabilizing muscles that are typically hard to contract and train can be stimulated.
Power Plate changes the frequency of contraction instead of the force applied to the muscle. This produces much less strain on the joints, ligaments and muscles without long exhausting sessions. Most patients feel immediate results. It is safe for almost all patient conditions when applied correctly.

The Results are Amazing!
Most dramatic, however, are the results. The system measures and tracks each workout and produces a complete printed report after each session. Indeed, the company that developed bioDensity™ measured four years of testing on clients performing more than 100,000 sets of exercises. The average client age was 52. After the first year, clients saw, on average, a 73% measurable gain in muscle strength. By the second year, the gain had jumped to 138%. By the fourth year, clients saw a 295% improvement in muscle strength – an astonishing achievement that is difficult for traditional workouts to match.
