Bioventus, a global leader in active orthopaedic healing, today announced that the next generation of its market-leading1 EXOGEN Ultrasound Bone Healing System – including new compliance features and a healing progression Performance Guarantee – is now available in Canada.

EXOGEN – the clinically proven treatment for indicated bone fractures – is a medical device that helps fractured bones heal. The device:

  • uses safe, effective low-intensity pulsed ultrasound to help stimulate the body’s natural healing process1
  • has an 86% heal rate for fractures not healing on their own4
  • offers 38% faster healing of indicated fresh fractures2,3

The new version of EXOGEN introduces new compliance capabilities – such as a log and patient treatment history – to help physicians ensure that patients are appropriately using and benefiting from the device.

“The release of the new EXOGEN device is exciting news for those of us who treat fractures on a regular basis. This technology has become a very useful tool for fracture treatment. The new Performance Guarantee is unprecedented and provides reassurance that Bioventus stands behind its product.” said Dr. Paul Zalzal, Assistant Clinical Professor at the McMaster University Ontario, Canada; and Former Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, Canada.

The new EXOGEN Performance Guarantee refunds out-of-pocket costs to EXOGEN patients who meet program requirements and who do not experience healing progression in their non-union fracture (skull and spine fractures excluded). Prescribed by thousands of physicians around the world, EXOGEN is a portable, lightweight device that features an ultrasound probe that patients place on their skin at the site of the bone break for 20 minutes a day. Patients can easily perform the treatment at home and EXOGEN has no known contraindications.

The new EXOGEN replaces the EXOGEN 4000+ model. The new device is more portable and user friendly, with its new colour LCD screen, splash-proof casing, and sleeker, lightweight design and is more environmentally friendly, with its removable, rechargeable battery.

“The innovative EXOGEN device is an example of the Bioventus commitment to create bone healing therapies that work to enhance the body’s natural healing process, thereby accelerating recovery and improving the patient’s quality of life. We work every day to bring orthobiologics to the forefront of orthopaedic care, so that patients everywhere can have the care they need, and return more quickly to living their normal, daily lives” said Anthony Bihl, CEO of Bioventus.
