An Innovative market leader 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 or tibia.
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.me.

Causes and Symptoms of LLD
Limb length discrepancies can be present at birth or they can develop after a fracture or a traumatic injury. Children may suffer an injury that damages their growth plate and as the child continues to grow, their limb length discrepancy can slowly increase.
Limb length discrepancies can also be caused from infections, tumors, and the result of chronic fractures, congenital abnormalities, malunions, or nonunions. Limb length discrepancies affect adults as well as children.1
