Biomet® OrthoPak® Non-invasive Bone Growth Stimulator System

Effective

  • The only electrical stimulation device on the market that is FDA approved for 24-hour use1

Scientifically Proven

  • In one in vitro pre-clinical study, upregulation of multiple bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) was shown to occur with capacitive coupling (CC) stimulation in as little as 30 minutes of exposure with optimal upregulation occurring at 24 hours 2,*

An Established Product

  • Over 85,000 OrthoPak Stimulator Systems devices sold3
  • More than 30 years of proven clinical use1

Designed with Patients in Mind

  • Smallest and lightest bone growth stimulation device on the market, designed with active patients in mind4
    • The lightweight feature of the OrthoPak stimulator means less weight being placed on the fracture nonunion treatment site
  • Compliance monitoring software – The OrthoPak stimulator contains embedded software that displays patient treatment data. This data may be downloaded to a health care professional’s computer for reviewing, storage or printout, via the use of the Patient Compliance Data Download Software5
