How can I obtain a Bone
A qualified healthcare professional must prescribe a Bone Healing System to you. The Bone Healing System is a non-invasive bone growth stimulator indicated for the treatment of fracture nonunions, failed fusions, and congenital pseudarthrosis in the appendicular system. A nonunion is considered to be established when there are no visibly progressive signs of healing.
I have a pacemaker. Can I
use the system?
No. The use of a pacemaker or cardioverter with the Bone Healing System is contraindicated and not recommended.
My doctor prescribed a cam
walking fracture boot, cast or wrist splint/brace. Can I use the
Bone Healing system while wearing these?
Yes, the treatment coil can be placed over or on top of a boot, cast or bracing. Once the coil has been shaped, apply the coil around the treatment site. The treatment site should be centered within the coil.
An extremity band is an additional optional component that may be ordered through Customer Service. The extremity band allows the controller to be worn conveniently on the arm or leg.
Is the system MRI
MRI scans and procedures should not be performed until the Bone Healing System has been completely removed.
Is the system safe to use
Use of the Bone Healing Stimulator System during pregnancy has not been evaluated; therefore it is not recommended.
Will my insurance cover the
cost of the device?
Insurance coverage varies depending on your insurance plan. The Bone Healing System is generally recognized by Medicare, Medicaid, worker’s compensation as well as private and public health plans.
