The OsteoBall was developed by Dr. Robert Swezey, M.D., an osteoporosis medical expert and professor at UCLA, and is said to be clinically proven to help build bone and strengthen muscle using isometric exercises that give a full-body workout without using weights. Using the OsteoBall regularly is believed to provide brief repetitive exercise (progressive resistive exercise) that helps stimulate bone growth over time by way of iso-pressure (the resistive pressure the ball gives back), which builds as more pressure is exerted on the ball during exercise.  - MG
