Expanded Delivery Options of the BioniCare Knee System to Help All Patients Treat Knee Pain, Even While Sleeping

IRVINE, Calif. – July 13, 2010 – VQ OrthoCare®, manufacturer of the BioniCare® Knee System and the leading provider of non-invasive medical solutions focused on bone, joint and soft tissue conditions, is proud to announce the BioniCare Night-Wrap System for those who wish to treat their knees while they sleep with the clinically proven, life-changing treatment for osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. BioniCare, the most successful, non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical treatment option, delivers a low-level pulsed signal to the knee joint that is not felt by the patient, but is proven to provide overall knee improvement as assessed by the Physicians Global Evaluation. As these final outcomes are achieved over time, now, with the introduction of the BioniCare Night-Wrap, patients have the ability to rapidly accelerate their treatment overnight.

“The BioniCare Night-Wrap is the ideal solution for either BioniCare patients wishing to increase their treatment hours while they sleep, or osteoarthritis patients who are unable or do not wish to wear a brace-based BioniCare system during the day, but still achieve results,” said Jim Knape, president and founder, VQ OrthoCare.

Two Johns Hopkins University Medical Center orthopedic surgeons conducted a long-term study showing that 62% of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) candidates with severe osteoarthritis were able to avoid surgery for four years or more by using BioniCare for less than one year. In the matched control group, only 7% avoided TKA surgery. To achieve BioniCare’s predicted exceptional outcomes, VQ OrthoCare offers the following treatment options:

  • Fastest: OActive™ or Eagle OA brace with BioniCare during the day and BioniCare Night-Wrap while sleeping
    • Maximize overall hours of use to accelerate improvement
    • Provides near-immediate return to pain-reduced daily function while wearing the brace
    • Allows fastest overall return to brace-free, pain free function
  • Faster: OActive or Eagle OA brace with BioniCare during the day
    • Achieve substantial hours of use
    • Provides near-immediate return to pain-reduced daily function while wearing the brace
  • Fast: BioniCare Night-Wrap while sleeping
    • Achieve substantial hours of use while sleeping
    • Access to a convenient treatment option for those who do not wish to or cannot wear a brace-based BioniCare system during the day
