Is it suitable for a person with osteoporosis?

If you are concerned, please discuss this with your physician. Osteoporosis causes the bones to become brittle which presents the risk of fracturing under intense therapy settings. The robotic fingers of BackHug slowly push the soft tissues on either side of the spine and therefore the risks of causing injuries for individuals with osteoporosis are very low.
