BIONICARE TECHNOLOGY
CLINICALLY PROVEN TREATMENT
BIONICARE SYSTEMS
The patented BioniCare Knee System delivers an
imperceptible pulsed electrical signal that was designed
specifically for the treatment of pain, symptoms, and the
overall improvement of the osteoarthritic knee.
BioniCare is the most thoroughly researched non-drug,
non-invasive osteoarthritis treatment. Five, peer-reviewed,
published studies involving 1200 patients in 88 clinical settings
have proven BioniCare’s effectiveness in reducing the pain and
symptoms of osteoarthritis and getting patients back to the
activities they enjoy.
BioniCare Knee System configurations:
• Non-drug, non-invasive treatment lowers cost and avoids
side effects and risks associated with other treatments.
• Indicated specifically for knee osteoarthritis - FDA
clearance received in 2003.

UNLIKE ALL OTHERS
Researchers found that a healthy
knee produces an electrical impulse
upon weight-bearing, while in an
arthritic joint the strength of that
impulse is significantly diminished.
BioniCare delivers an electrical signal
that mimics the natural impulse and
is clinically proven to be effective.
