• Biomet? EBI Bone Healing System

    Clinically Effective

    More published studies than any other electrical bone growth stimulation device on the market1
    Heal rates as high as 92%2***
    2 ? months earlier healing3****
    75% of Biomet customers are repeat prescribers4

    Scientifically Proven

    Pre-clinical studies demonstrate that PEMF stimulation has a reproducible osteogenic effect?in vitro?and simultaneously induces naturally occurring BMP-2 and BMP-45,**
    In vivo?and?in vitro?pre-clinical research demonstrates PEMF stimulation increases angiogenesis more than twofold6,**


    According to a published, peer-reviewed study, electrical stimulation was shown to be a cost-effective treatment for fracture nonunions7, *****


    INDICATIONS:?The Biomet? EBI Bone Healing System (P790002/S028) is indicated for the treatment of fracture nonunions, failed fusions, and congenital pseudarthrosis in the appendicular system.?



    These device systems are durable therapeutic electrical devices intended for single patient use only under a prescription. Federal Law (U.S.A.) restricts this device to sale by or order from a physician. Rx Only - Prescription Only - Single Patient Use Only - Not for Re-Sale or Re-Distribution - Do Not Reuse.?



    Nonunion fractures in which a synovial pseudarthrosis (fluid filled gap) exists. Under certain conditions, electromagnetic stimulation could inhibit the output of some demand pacemakers or implantable defibrillators. Therefore, it is not recommended for patients with certain types of pacemakers or implantable defibrillators. Patients should be cautioned to avoid coming in close proximity to pacemaker or defibrillator wearers during stimulation. Use of these device systems on pregnant patients has not been evaluated; therefore, it is not recommended in these cases.?

    **PRE-CLINICAL DISCLAIMER: Following non-invasive electrical stimulation, increases in multiple growth factors have been observed in various pre-clinical in vitro cellular and in vivo animal studies. Although not indicative of human clinical results, these factors have been implicated in various models of bone repair.

    ***The original PEMF clinical study under the supervision of C.A.L. Bassett, M.D., Sc.D. which led to PMA approval in 1979 yielded an overall functional union success rate of 76%.?

    **** Patients who treated with PEMF stimulation for 9 or more hours per day healed on average 76 days earlier than patients who treated with PEMF stimulation for 3 or less hours per day.

    ***** This study measured actual health care resource utilization and did not assess clinical effectiveness or healing times.
