Product Overview

The Paper Thermal assembly is the consumable part of the printer or imager, which is used in the Achilles EXPII device. The thermal paper is placed in the thermal paper slot that is associated with the internal printer door. It consists of the thermal paper roll and a plastic bag. The Achilles EXPII device is the bone ultrasonometer that produces high frequency ultrasound waves to evaluate the bone status in the heel and the os calcis. The Achilles EXPII measure the speed of sound and the frequency dependent attenuation of the sound waves that are and combined them to form a clinical measurement. These clinical measures are also called the stiffness index. The stiffness index indicates risk of osteoporotic fracture in postmenopausal women compared to bone mineral density (BMD) as measured by X-ray absorptiometry at the spine or hip. The stiffness index results are expressed as t-scores that are used to diagnosis the osteoporosis.
