AEIOU Scientific is developing instruments based on patent-pending Cortical Bone Mechanics Technology™ (CBMT) to help scientists measure what they could not measure before: accurate, non-invasive, direct functional measurements of structural mechanical properties of cortical bone in the ulnas of living people.

Our CBMT Scientific Instrument, SI-001 is now available for commercial purchase. Please contact us to inquire or place an order.

Why the Name AEIOU Scientific?

  • The Company’s name starts with A, because Anne Loucks, PhD, of Ohio University started the development of CBMT.
  • EI is at the center of the Company’s name, because measurement of flexural rigidity (the product of the elastic modulus E and the cross-sectional moment of inertia I) is at the center of what CBMT instruments measure.
  • The Company’s name ends with OU, because Ohio University is where CBMT was developed.
Lyn Bowman, CBMT Inventor

ABOUT AEIOU Scientific

The mission of AEIOU Scientific, LLC is to improve the targeting of medical care for the prevention of low-trauma fractures. In America, 1 in 2 women and 1 in 4 men over age 50 suffer such a fracture.  A quarter of hip fracture patients die within a year  and half are disabled in walking. The primary cause of these low-trauma fractures is osteoporosis.

AEIOU Scientific, LLC, (AEIOU) is developing and commercializing Ohio University’s patent-pending Cortical Bone Mechanics Technology™ (CBMT) to enable better measurement of bone strength. The first product is a scientific laboratory instrument for researchers. This instrument is for scientific use only, and not for use in diagnostic procedures. AEIOU will also develop CBMT as a non-invasive medical device to be submitted for approval by the FDA for improving the diagnosis and monitoring of osteoporosis and other bone diseases (this device is not cleared by the FDA for distribution in the United States).
