EXOGEN ultrasound bone healing system for long bone fractures within non-union or delayed healing. EXOGEN delivers low-intensity pulsed ultrasound waves with the aim of stimulating bone healing. It is thought that healing is promoted by stimulating the production of growth factors and proteins that increase the removal of old bone, increase the production of new bone and increase the rate at which fibrous matrix at a fracture site is converted to mineralised bone. Long bone fractures are suitable for treatment if the fracture is stable and well-aligned.
