According to the research conducted at the R. R. Wreden Scientific-Research Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics (St. Petersburg), the application of microvibrational treatment four times a day for 30 minutes shortens the healing time of fractures by an average of one week. The study was performed on patients with fractures of the metacarpal(wrist) bones – fractures that usually are so onerous that the function of the affected wrist cannot be restored fully in 60% of cases. The group of more than 50 patients who underwent microvibrational therapy notified not only faster healing of the fractured bones, but also shorter period of rehabilitation and disability.* Patients who’s rehabilitation included microvibrational therapy regained wrist functionality by an average of 10 days earlier than those who used traditional rehabilitation methods.* In addition, use of microvibrational therapy had additional benefit of quickly relieving pain and reducing swelling.*

Treatment is carried out according to the scheme below

The Fonovit device is used to shorten the healing process of a fracture, to reinforce the strength of the connective tissue, to avoid complications, to reduce itching and swelling in the immobilized fractured bone and to restore joint mobility faster.

Treatment procedure using the Fonovit device. Treatment time – 15-30 days. Area of application – fractured bone.

Day Number of procedures per day
Mode Time/min.
1-15 (30) 2-3 2  20-40

The treatment of the fracture begins 3-4 days after the accident.  Special transducers, i.e. vibrophones are placed near the fracture. If the fracture is stabilized with an orthopedic cast, then vibrophones are to be placed directly on the cast, below the point of fracture point at an angle of 90 ° to each other. The treatment is carried out while lying down.

After treatment one should remain still for 1-2 hours. In case of swelling additional procedure should be performed. Vibrophones (mode 2 is used) should be placed in the are of edema for 15-20 minutes.

During procedures when limb fractures are involved, a pillow can be put under feet to improve blood flow. The Fonovit device can be used in combination with other treatments, including the Ilizarov apparatus, as well as treatments that  use metal components for the immobilization of the fractured bone.

To restore and enhance joint mobility mode 4 is used. Duration of treatment – 20-40 minutes. Vibrophones are placed on the joint, side by side. When possible, exercises aimed at increasing mobility should be performed during the procedure – with minimum effort slowly bend the joint for 20-30 seconds, then just as slowly straighten it up. The exercise should be carried out for the half the time of the procedure.

*Please note that treatment effects are based on individual experiences. We can not guarantee the same results for all users of Fonovit therapy. In order to ensure the best patient service, we offer the possibility of unconditional return of the device within 30 days in the absence of positive treatment results.
