Orthofix’s PhysioStim Bone Growth Stimulator Gains Dual Approval
Devices Submissions and Approvals
The FDA and European Commission issued approvals for Orthofix’s PhysioStim bone growth stimulators, a non-surgical treatment for patients with nonunion of a fracture that can be worn over clothing, casts or surgical fixation devices.
By emitting a pulsed electromagnetic field signal, the device prompts a low-level electrical field at the area of fracture and stimulates bone healing. The devices will be available in different models designed to fit the patient’s body.
The devices include a mobile app, STIM onTrack, that allows physicians to remotely view a patient’s adherence to a prescription and allows patients to participate in their recovery through therapy reminders, educational resources and treatment calendars.
