Bone Healing Therapy
The PhysioStim™ device provides a safe, non-invasive option for treating fractures that are difficult to heal. With an overall clinical success rate of 80 percent (up to 88 percent for fracture gaps less than 3mm), PhysioStim devices have high success rates for treating nonunion fractures. The device assists in fracture healing by delivering a pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) signal to the targeted fracture site.1,2
The PhysioStim device has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of nonunion fractures.1,2 A nonunion is a fracture that has shown no visible signs of healing. For complete prescribing information, please refer to the Instruction Manual.
This single-piece device is lightweight, flexible and portable, allowing freedom of movement during treatment. Typical prescribed treatment time is three hours per day. An LCD and audible alarm provide important feedback during treatment such as the operational status, treatment time remaining, battery capacity, etc.
