Osteoporosis - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: The skeleton is made up of bones, which provides support and shape to the body. They protect soft internal organs, such as the brain, and heart from injury. Together with muscles, strong bones enable the body to move freely. Bones have a solid outer surface called compact bone. The inner bone is called spongy bone, because it is less dense than compact bone and has many small holes, like a sponge. Bones contains cells osteoclasts that break down bone tissue. Other cells called osteoblasts make new bone tissue using minerals, such as calcium and phosphate from the blood. Hormones, such as estrogen, growth hormone, and testosterone help keep the number and activity of osteoblasts higher than osteoclasts so that more bone is made then removed. Physical forces and pressure during exercise also help bones to grow stronger and denser. These processes allow bones to grow strong in children and young adults. People have their strongest most dense bones called peak bone mass in their 30s. After this age, osteoclasts gradually remove more bone than the osteoblasts make. Osteoporosis is a condition that leads to weakened bones causing them to break more easily. Healthy bone is dense enough to support and protect the body and to handle the stresses of movement and minor injuries. However, people with osteoporosis have abnormally thin bones with larger holes in the spongy bone. There are two types of osteoporosis. Primary osteoporosis is usually related to older age, as well as a reduced amount of estrogen. Secondary osteoporosis affects both children and adults. It is related to other diseases or conditions, such as cancer, hormone problems, or use of certain medications. A person has a greater risk for either type of osteoporosis if they don't develop enough bone mass when they're growing from childhood to adulthood. Risk factors that can lead to low peak bone mass include a family history of osteoporosis, being white or Asian, being female, a poor diet, certain medications-- such as steroids or certain seizure medicines-- lack of physical activity and weight bearing, exercise and lifestyle behaviors-- such as smoking and drinking too much alcohol. A person also has a greater risk for either type of osteoporosis if they have an abnormal amount of bone loss after age 30. Some bone loss is normal after this age. However, a person with the same risk factors for low peak bone mass can be more likely to get osteoporosis as they age. Increased bone loss is also common in women after the time of a woman's last period called menopause. After menopause, a woman's ovaries stop making the hormone estrogen. With the drop in hormones, bone removing cells called osteoclasts are more active than the bone making cells called osteoblast. Bones may break or fracture easily, because they're unable to withstand the physical strain and pressure from even normal activities. Common fracture locations and people with osteoporosis include the wrists, spine, and hips. Building strong healthy bones through a diet rich in calcium and vitamins and getting regular exercise can help prevent, as well as treat osteoporosis. Common medications for osteoporosis include bisphosonates, a medication called Denosumab, selective estrogen receptor modulus or SERMs, and Calcitonin. In general, these medications act on bone removing cells called osteoclast. Parathyroid hormone acts on bone making cells called osteoblasts. Food or supplements containing calcium and vitamin D are also recommended for osteoporosis. For more information, talk to a health care professional.

"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled [my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain that this contributed to our successful result."

"Thank you very much for the great work on the medical exhibits. Our trial resulted in a $16 million verdict for a 9 year old boy with catastrophic injuries, and the medical illustrations definitely played key role in the trial."

"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.

The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."
