There’s an App for That
Fractureproof is an app that senses if your exercise is effectively improving your bone health, and if not, it gives you tips on how to do it right. All you need is a smartphone (only iOS so far) attached to your hip or in your pocket while you exercise. The app costs $3.99, but the money benefits American Bone Health, a nonprofit organization that educates and assists people with osteoporosis and other bone diseases. Check it out on iTunes or at facebook.com/fractureproof/.
