Melmak for Fracture Healing

About Melmak – Theory of Operation

Melmac theory of operation

The Melmak device is a Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound (LIPUS) device. LIPUS is a non-invasive ultrasound technology that is administered directly against the skin, sending a mechanical force through the tissue to stimulate cell reproduction and bone healing. This small ultrasound force is small enough not to cause any pain, yet large enough to speed healing of bone fractures by 38%.

As well as activating cell reproduction LIPUS also enhances cellular behaviour and protein expression at the fracture site.

Practical Use

The Melmak LIPUS device is a convenient 20 minute once per day treatment shown to accelerate the healing:

Once positioned over the fracture site operating the Melmak device takes a simple press of a button.

The Melmak device has provided proven results for over 20 years with no known side effects.

Is Melmak Right For You?

Specifically designed for self-treatment, LIPUS devices can be used in the comfort of your own home or office with no supervision from a medical professional.

Only 20 minutes per day is proven to advance the healing of fresh, delayed, and non-union fractures.

Fractures the Melmak device can treat:

  • Humerous / Radius
  • Scaphoid / Hand / Wrist
  • Femur, Tibia & Fibula
  • Foot & Ankle
  • Clavicle

Melmak can help those with additional risk factures such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Osteoporosis
  • Advanced age
  • High impact fractures
  • High risk fractures
  • Concomitant medications
  • NSAID use (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)

Each kit includes:

Control unit and transducer

Tested and validated for 1500 treatments. This model Transducer transmits a low intensity, high frequency pulsed
ultrasound signal through the patient’s skin to the fracture site to be treated.

Transducer cable length 1.5m.

Ultrasound gel

250 gram bottle. Gel must be applied to
Transducer head prior to all treatment
to enable ultrasound signal to pass from
Transducer through skin to the fracture
site. Only use Gel supplied by Sports Health.

Assembled transducer holder and straps

Used to position ultrasound Transducer
over fracture site


For cast application
