Helping bones heal faster with the MELMAK™ Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound (LIPUS) Device. LIPUS devices have been clinically found to support and accelerate the healing process of fresh fractures and non-unions. A non-invasive, portable technology that stimulates the bones natural healing process.
This device stimulates blood flow at the fracture site by pulsating ultrasound signals to the region. This increase in blood flow activates cell reproduction cells to help form the new bone.
This device is to be used 20 minutes per day. With its easy to use portable abilities, this home based bone healing machine is a convenient way that may help heal your fresh fractures or non-unions faster. This treament excludes regions of the skull and vertebral column. Some factors that may cause an increase in recovery time include the following: diabetes, smoking, advanced age, obesity and osteoporosis. Contraindications include individuals who have pacemakers, please consult your physician before proceeding with this device.

The Melmak bone healing Device is a convenient, 20 minute per day, home-based treatment which improves the speed of healing of fresh fractures and non-unions.
The Melmak Device delivers a low intensity pulsed ultrasound to the fracture site. The low intensity pulsed ultrasound signal (LIPUS) delivers an acoustic pressure wave to the fracture site. This represents a mechanical force, which aims to improve circulation and help with forming new bone.
Studies using commercially available LIPUS devices have shown that on average, fresh fractures will heal 38% faster than fractures that have not been treated with ultrasound. This is dependent on the type and location of the fracture.
The Melmak Device has been especially designed for patient self-treatment. Once the ultrasound head has been strapped into position over the fracture site, simply press the on/off button to start the treatment.
The Melmak Device may assist the healing of recent fractures and fractures that have been slow to heal.
The Melmak Device should only be used as prescribed by a health professional.
