A prototype system for programmed distraction with electrical stimulation of the osteotylus formation is presented. The basic circuit diagram of the system is described. The system implements a method for distraction force measurement using an inductive sensor. A software application for remote control of the limb lengthening procedure and visualization of the curve of bone tissue tension vs. distraction period is described.
