Remote Control Technology for The Treatment of Limb Length Discrepancies
PRECICE II is a new american intramedullary nail to be used for limb lengthening of the femur and tibia that utilizes an External Remote Controller (ERC) to non-invasively lengthen the implant. The key to Ellipse’s technology is the magnetic interaction between the PRECICE implant and the PRECICE ERC, a portable, hand held unit that lengthens the PRECICE implant. PRECICE is used to treat lower limb length discrepancies often the result of acute or chronic fractures.
How PRECICE works
The key to the Ellipse platform technology is the magnetic interaction between the PRECICE implant and the PRECICE ERC. Permanent magnets are used to non-invasively adjust the PRECICE implant. This advancement in intramedullary limb lengthening allows for a precision, controlled lengthening phase with the ability to shorten the device if necessary.
