Exogen Ultrasound Bone Healing System

Following on from my previous blog entry regarding my broken leg & the new cast I have had fitted with the Exogen portal, I thought it might be educational or at least informative to show the unit in action.

The basic idea is that the unit bombards my leg with an ultrasonic pulse which excites my broken bone & promotes the healing process.

The probe has a gel ‘coupling agent’ put on it to give the ultrasound signal something to travel through between the gap between the probe & my leg. The unit then sends a preprogrammed signal to my bone for a set time. That’s it. It’s that simple (and painless).
