EXOGEN: what it is and how it can help you heal a fracture
What is EXOGEN?
EXOGEN is an innovative bone healing system that uses Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasonics (LIPUS) to stimulate the biological regenerative process of fractures.
This system has proven to be highly effective in accelerating the healing process of bone fractures, and its use has been approved by the FDA in the United States. In addition, EXOGEN has been used successfully around the world for more than 25 years, demonstrating its safety and efficacy in clinical practice.
By using LIPUS, EXOGEN amplifies the natural biological signal that occurs at the fracture, leading to increased production of cells and proteins that are necessary for bone regeneration.
Who can use EXOGEN?
This device is specially designed for athletes who need a quick and effective recovery of fresh fractures, allowing them to return to physical activity in less time.
In addition, EXOGEN is also a solution for non-union patients who want to avoid additional surgeries and achieve faster recovery.
Anyone who needs fast and effective healing of a bone fracture you can use EXOGEN with the help of a healthcare professional.
How EXOGEN is used
To use EXOGEN, you must first make sure that the device is fully charged and that the batteries are in good condition. Once this is done, place the head of the device on the area of the fracture or pseudarthrosis and turn it on by pressing the power button. It is important that you use the device according to the manufacturer's and your healthcare professional's instructions to get the best possible results.
It is generally recommended to use EXOGEN for about 20 minutes a day, every day, for at least six weeks, although the exact time may vary depending on the nature of the injury and your doctor's assessment.
LIPUS technology on which EXOGEN is based
EXOGEN is based on Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound (LIPUS) technology to aid in the healing of bone fractures and treat non-union.
LIPUS has been studied for decades and has been shown to be effective in stimulating bone cell production and improving blood circulation to the area of injury. The EXOGEN device emits high-frequency sound waves that penetrate soft tissue and stimulate the body's natural healing process. The effect of LIPUS has been demonstrated in clinical studies, where a significant reduction in fracture healing time and a higher success rate in nonunion healing have been seen.
In addition, LIPUS has been shown to be safe and effective in the treatment of a variety of bone injuries, from long bone fractures to nonunions in flat bones.

Studies supporting the use of EXOGEN
The use of EXOGEN has been supported by several clinical studies that have demonstrated their effectiveness in the healing of bone fractures and pseudarthrosis.
A study published in The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgeryfound that the use of EXOGEN in patients with recent tibial fractures significantly accelerated bone healing compared to the control group.
Another study, published in the journal Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research, found that the use of EXOGEN also improved healing in patients with nonunions after failed surgery.
Additionally, other studies have shown that EXOGEN is safe and well tolerated by patients, with no side effects.
These findings support the use of EXOGEN as an effective and safe tool to accelerate the healing of bone fractures and nonunions in patients of all ages.
There are many success stories of patients using EXOGEN to speed the healing of their bone fractures and non-unions..
For example, professional soccer player Eric Brundidge was able to return to the field in record time using EXOGEN after sustaining a fractured tibia.
Another success story is that of the marathon runner Michael Gfeller. He was able to recover from a stress fracture in his foot in less time than expected thanks to the use of EXOGEN.
In addition, many patients have avoided the need for additional surgery by using EXOGEN to treat their nonunion.
These success stories demonstrate that EXOGEN is an effective tool for accelerating the healing of bone fractures and treating non-union, allowing patients to recover faster and return to their daily activities in less time.
How to get EXOGEN?
To get EXOGEN, you need a prescription from a healthcare professional, such as an orthopedic doctor or physical therapist.
Once you have the recipe, EXOGEN can be purchased at SDTrauma, EXOGEN's official distributor. It is important to note that EXOGEN is a medical device and may be covered by health insurance, so check with your insurance provider to determine if costs can be covered.
In general, obtaining EXOGEN is a simple process, but it is important to follow your healthcare professional's recommendations and use the device according to the manufacturer's instructions to obtain the best possible results.
