Executive Summary

Schick Technologies, which has developed one of the cheapest bone density devices available, has received an expanded clearance from the FDA to market the device for assessing the risk of osteoporosis-related fracture. The $11,000 device, which measures bone density in the middle finger to indicate the density of bone in other parts of the body, was originally cleared for US sale last December. Schick, based on Long Island, New York, is developing a range of products based on the digital capture of X-ray images and is currently looking for OEM customers for a digital detector for breast imaging.
