What is Onero?
Onero™ is an evidence-based exercise programme designed specifically to prevent osteoporotic fracture by stimulating bone development and prevent falls and fractures. The exercise protocol is targeted specifically to bone, being brief but high intensity.
Why Join Onero?
Onero™ is designed to be delivered by exercise professionals working with the ageing community. This program is an evidence-based exercise program for osteoporosis / osteopenia client demographic.
What are the benefits of bone health exercise?
Osteoporosis is common, affecting around two out of every three women, and one in six men, over the age of 60. Nearly two-thirds of Australian’s over 50 suffer from reduced bone mass, classified as osteopenia, putting them at risk of developing osteoporosis. One of the most effective lifestyle strategies that are recognised for osteoporosis is targeted bone health exercise.
What is included in the ONERO Program?
INCLUDES FALL PREVENTION EXERCISES
The risk of osteoporotic fracture is greatly increased in people who fall. Onero™ training includes exercises to improve balance and thereby reduces osteoporotic fracture risk both by improving bone and reducing falls
We recommend a number of simple functional assessments before beginning Onero™ so effectiveness can be monitored. These tests form part of a vital strategy to track real world safety and effectiveness of the Onero™ program in the larger research program underway at The Bone Clinic.
The safety of the Onero™ program depends on clinical assessment to recognise co-existing conditions so that the program can be implemented without risk of injury or exacerbation of existing conditions. A hallmark of the Onero™ program is a requirement for close supervision by allied health professionals.
Only coaches with the appropriate clinical training and expertise are permitted to deliver Onero™ to people living with osteoporosis.
EFFECTIVE EXERCISE FOR OSTEOPOROSIS AND OSTEOPENIA
A growing body of scientific evidence has demonstrated that Onero™, supervised, bone-targeted high intensity resistance and impact training, reduces osteoporotic fracture risk in postmenopausal women and older men with low to very low bone mass. The evidence-based Onero™ program improves bone, muscle, and physical function and is safe for people with low bone mass when supervised
