It can be expected that the healing time will be reduced on average by around one third up to 41%. Depending on the bone fracture or osteotomy, this means that the patient can expect to be fully fi t again between three and six weeks sooner than without this additional treatment.
Pseudarthrosis or delayed bone fractures can be healed faster and better than previously. Therapy using bone4ce is a painless alternative to operations that would otherwise be necessary. The success rate is around 90%.
