MANY FRACTURES ARE SLOW TO HEAL ON THEIR OWN. ONE IN 20 DON’T HEAL AT ALL.5,6

Using the EXOGEN Ultrasound Bone Healing System can improve your odds.

Fractures are often frustratingly slow to heal. Between 5-10% of fractures fail to heal on their own,12 leaving patients to choose either continual pain and immobility or surgery and lengthy rehabilitation.5,6

The location, pattern or severity of some fractures can impede bone healing and increase your risk of healing failure. Common health and lifestyle factors such as obesity, diabetes and tobacco use may also interfere with healing.

Is EXOGEN Ultrasound Bone Healing System Right For You?

You recently broke a bone and you want it to heal as quickly as possible.

EXOGEN has been clinically proven to accelerate fracture healing by 38%.1,2

Your fracture shows no sign of healing following the break or you have been diagnosed as having a nonunion fracture.

EXOGEN stimulates the bone healing process, getting you back on the path to healing. EXOGEN has been clinically proven to promote healing for 86% of nonunion fractures.3

You are a smoker.

EXOGEN amplifies your body's healing power, reducing the healing delay typically caused by smoking.8

Common Factors That May Impede Your Natural Bone Healing Process:

  • Tobacco use5
  • Common arthritis medications6
  • Obesity13
  • Diabetes6
  • Infections14
  • Diet and nutrition6 

Silence is the Sound of Bone Healing

The EXOGEN Bone Healing System uses low-intensity ultrasound waves to amplify your body’s natural bone repair processes.

  • 38% faster healing of fresh fractures*1-2
  • 86% healing of nonunions (fractures not healing on their own)*3

You can’t hear it working, but EXOGEN’s effects on bone healing have been proven in more than double the clinical trials of all other bone healing systems combined.16

The Science of Bone Healing with EXOGEN

The EXOGEN Bone Healing System uses low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) to amplify natural bone healing three ways:

1 Stimulation

EXOGEN sends ultrasound waves through skin and surrounding soft tissue to reach the site of the bone fracture.

2 Activation

The ultrasound waves activate certain cell receptors, setting off a series of reactions, referred to as a cascade.

3 Upregulation

EXOGEN ultrasound increases upregulation of the processes critical to bone repair.

Preclinical Studies Have Shown That EXOGEN Enhances Bone Healing at Every Stage10

Within minutes of a bone fracture, the body begins a process to repair the damage. Healing a fracture involves several distinct stages. EXOGEN works at the molecular level to aid in every step along the way.

Inflamation EXOGEN’s ultrasound signal increases cell division in cultures of cells that make up the membrane that covers most bones (periosteal cells), and upregulates growth factors that trigger the formation of new blood vessels.19,22

Soft Callus EXOGEN enhances transforming growth factor beta (TGF-ß), which mediates the differentiation and proliferation of chondrocytes that play a major role in forming the fracture callus.23,24

Hard Callus EXOGEN upregulates endochondral ossification, a process that is essential to the creation of bone tissue.25,26 EXOGEN also enhances the differentiation of bone marrow stem cells into cells that form bone tissue (osteoblasts).27,28 Finally, EXOGEN enhances the incorporation of the minerals calcium and phosphate into these cells, to add structure and strength to newly formed bone tissue.22

Bone Remodeling EXOGEN accelerates both the normal formation (remodeling) and recycling (resorption) of bone tissue, for a faster formation of the mineralized callus.27 Mineralized callus is the outer layer of bone tissue that normally forms like scar tissue at the ends of a broken bone once it has healed.27

EXOGEN Turns Your Downtime Into Healing Time

A bone fracture commonly prevents you from continuing to work or live your life as you were able to before the fracture.

When you have a busy life, you want to get back on your feet as soon as possible. When the healing takes longer than normal or shows no progression, you want help that will accelerate the healing of your fracture.

With the EXOGEN Ultrasound Bone Healing System, just 20 minutes a day of treatment can amplify your natural bone-healing power for faster healing, and restore healing to a fracture that has failed to heal (nonunion).
