Bone growth stimulation is a type of electrotherapy that uses low-frequency electrical currents to promote bone healing and growth. Bone growth stimulators, like the Spinalogic or OL1000 series from DJO/Enovis, are typically used for patients with conditions such as osteoporosis, non-union fractures, delayed union fractures of extremities such as an arm or leg, or post-operatively following a spinal fusion procedure.
Electrical currents used in bone growth stimulation are delivered through a device, such as a bone growth stimulator, placed on the skin near the affected area. These devices typically have a small electrical generator that produces low-frequency currents transmitted to the affected area through electrodes.
The electrical currents used in bone growth stimulation are thought to stimulate the cells in the bone, called osteoblasts, to divide and grow. This increased activity helps to promote bone healing and growth and can help to reduce the time it takes for a bone to heal.
Bone growth stimulation is typically administered for several hours each day. Treatment periods can range from several weeks to several months, depending on the patient's condition and response to the therapy.
Kinex Medical Company's bone growth stimulation products use PEMF technology. The devices are portable, user-friendly, and easy to operate. It is important to note that bone growth stimulation should be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional and not as a substitute for other treatments such as surgery or physical therapy. Consult with a healthcare professional to determine if bone growth stimulation is an appropriate treatment option for you.
