Results from an in vivo assessment of the bending stiffness of human tibiae with a new method demonstrate that bone mineral measurements are not a suitable predictor to evaluate changes of mechanical properties of long bones. In a study on 559 male military recruits, the bone mineral at tibial shaft resulted in a mean increase of +1.8% during 15 weeks of exercise. The bending stiffness however increased about 25%. An additional test 24 months later on a sample indicated that the increase of bone mineral content was only due to the natural maturation of bone. The bending stiffness however, decreased by about 6% demonstrating the earlier training effect. No correlation between bone mineral and bending stiffness could be found neither in absolute values nor in difference between the three measurements. At the same time first results of a normative study on children (9 to 18 years old, male and female) and on women (up to 80 years old) are presented.
