  • It is designed to lengthen a predetermined distance.
  • Can lengthen as far as 8 cm.
lengthening process
Lengthening Process
  • The lengthening is triggered by movement of the limb.
  • Rotation of 3-9 degrees and minor weight bearing causes expansion.
  • The distal end of the rod telescopes outward.
  • A internal threaded rod spins causing the extension.
benefits
Benefits
  • Completely internal and non-visible.
    • No risk on infection
    • Minimal scaring
    • No social stress
