Bone Growth Stimulators for Delayed Union of Fractures

CMF OL1000 Bone Growth Stimulators are portable, battery-powered medical devices indicated for use in the noninvasive treatment of an established nonunion fracture acquired secondary to trauma, excluding all vertebrae and flat bones.

Features

  • Lightweight and comfortable
  • Easy-to-use & Noninvasive
  • Requires simple, one-button operation
  • Device is worn for only 30 minutes per day
  • Can be used with internal or external fixation or over a cast

Benefits

  • Salvages non-union of fractures
  • Can be worn over a cast, or with internal or external fixation
  • Healing rate of 75% in over 2300 patients (FDA Registry)

CMF Treatment

This treatment has been shown in pre-clinical studies to help the body's own healing process begin working.

Clinical studies have shown an increased chance of healing of 60.7% in patients with nonunions that averaged 29.3 months from injury.

Registry data on over 2300 patients reports a heal rate of 75.1%.

Bone Growth Stimulation for Various Fracture Sites

Single and Dual Coil Stimulators are available in multiple sizes for fractures of short and long bones.
