Orthofix International, a company out of Lewisville, Texas, landed both FDA clearance and European CE Mark approval for its new CervicalStim and SpinalStim bone growth stimulators.
The devices deliver electromagnetic field pulses toward the bone to speed up its natural healing process. It’s specifically intended for patients recovering from spinal fusion procedures.
The devices come with a matching Stim onTrack smartphone app that helps to make sure patients receive regular at-home treatments and that they apply the devices to themselves correctly. Reminders coupled with a calendar make sure that the patients follow through and a reporting feature is available to let clinicians know if patients follow their regimens.
