Precice Applied

The Precice system uses distraction osteogenesis. Interaction between magnets in the device and an ERC allow for precise, adjustable and customizable distraction throughout the lengthening phase of treatment. Following the corticotomy being made and during the lengthening phase, the Precice implant is gradually lengthened based on the patient's requirements with the hand-held ERC.

The patient's lengthening prescription can be entered into the ERC by the physician. When the desired length is achieved, intramedullary fixation continues to provide stability throughout the consolidation phase.

Key Benefits

Fewer total procedures

Patients treated with Precice for limb length discrepancy (LLD) have less surgeries than previous standard of care.3

Patient preferred

Physical therapy is less challenging, patients can return to full range of motion (ROM) and daily activity quicker.1,2

Less pain medication

Pain scores and length of time required for prescription pain medication is significantly lower than previous standard of care.1,2

Avoid operating on the healthy limb

It is no longer required to shorten the healthy limb to avoid pain and issues associated with an external frame.1,2

Quicker healing

It takes an average of 31.3 days to heal with Precice compared to 47.1 days with an external device.1,2

Weight bear faster

Earlier ability to bear full weight without aids compared to a mono-lateral frame.1,2

Regenerate speed and formation

Regenerate forms faster with less deformity.1,2


Able to accurately achieve desired lengthening through ERC technology.1,2

Fewer scars

Patients significantly happier with fewer scars.1,2
