An innovative, market-leading solution to help patients with limb length discrepancy (LLD). The PRECICE system is an intramedullary device that once implanted utilizes an External Remote Controller (ERC) to non-invasively lengthen the femur and tibia.

Clinical Benefits


Through propriety magnetic technology, the PRECICE ERC lengthens the PRECICE device with Precision Rate control. Each patient’s lengthening is customized based on the physician’s lengthening protocol. This customizable programming of the ERC allows for lengthening sessions to be performed in the comfort of their home.
