Device for Distraction Osteogenesis

Ostiio LLC of Philadelphia is developing a novel device for distraction osteogenesis (DO) within the cranio-maxillofacial skeleton. For many years, DO has been used to correct congenital skeletal defects by promoting the growth of new bone. Unlike current DO methods, the Ostiio device would be fully internalized and remote-controlled, thereby decreasing the risk of infection, and improving patient and surgeon satisfaction.
