Beinvernd The Icelandic Osteoporosis Foundation

WOD 2002 in Iceland

An ultrasound measurement done in a workplace.

On October 21. Beinvernd launced its osteoporosis in the workplace campaign. Now, Beinvernd offers bone density measurements (ultrasound) in workplaces. Employers are encouraged to offer their employees, 40 years and older,a bone density measurement during their worktime. As a follow up to the measurements, the employees get a lecture on osteoporosis, prevention and treatment. So far this has been a successful campaign.
