Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Bone strength [ Time Frame: One year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Examination of bone strength will be carried out by using a measuring device called Sunlight Omnisense. This device uses SOS (Speed of Sound) to check bone strength and density.

  • Bone density [ Time Frame: One year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Examination of bone density will be carried out by using a measuring device called Sunlight Omnisense. This device uses SOS (Speed of Sound) to check bone strength and density.
