Foot & Ankle Devices Market (2012 – 2017) By Product Type (External Fixation, Internal Fixation, Joint Replacement, Prosthesis, Bracing) - Global Trends & Competitive Analysis
Date:2/20/2013

(PRWEB) February 20, 2013

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Foot & Ankle Devices Market (2012 - 2017) By product type (external fixation, internal fixation, joint replacement, prosthesis, bracing) - Global trends & competitive analysis" report to their offering.

The foot & ankle segment is one of the largest in the extremity market. It includes the musculature from the ankle joint or the tibiofibular-talus joint and includes muscles, ligaments, and tendons associated with the forefoot, mid-foot, and hind-foot.

This market includes orthopedic devices used in ligament repair and reconstruction procedures, internal fixation (ORIF), joint replacement, arthrodesis, and arthroscopy. Sub-talar joint replacement is also gaining strength due to the rise of uncommon phalanx joint conditions such as hammertoe. The report estimates the market for internal fixation devices such as compression, buttress plates, screws, rods and wires. It also estimates the market for complete joint replacement for the ankle and other minor joint areas. The total ankle joint replacement procedures are around 50,000 annually in the United States alone. Around 40% of fractures require surgical intervention by placing a permanent support to the bone, and advances in implant device design such as ankle replacement, have made surgery a feasible option for many people.

This report, "Foot & Ankle Devices Market (2012 – 2017)", also includes two other segments, namely, prosthetics, and bracing and support. Foot & ankle prosthetics has gained a significant amount of footing since the introduction of technologically advanced devices and materials such as the pneumatic foot, carbon fiber, microprocessor-controlled, and hydraulic controlled prosthetic feet. Bracing and support consists of a large range of devices, utilized on the basis of type of injury. Braces are available for minor strains and twists, along with heavy-duty braces for postoperative recuperation.

The main drivers for the foot & ankle devices market are the rise in sports injuries, which commonly involve serious ankle injuries, increasing incidences of road accidents, and rise in rate of diabetes, which leads to the deterioration of foot & ankle area caused by large sores and infections. The foot & ankle extremity market will grow substantially in the coming decade with advances in technology.

Companies mentioned in this report include Aap Implantate Ag., Acumed Llc, Arthrex Inc., Arthrocare Corporation, Biomedical Enterprises Inc., Biomet Inc., Conmed Corporation (Conmed Linvatec), Core Essence Orthopaedic Inc., Deroyal Industries Inc., Donjoy Inc., Fh Orthopedics, Fillauer Inc., Integra Lifesciences Holding Corporation., Internal Fixation Systems Inc., Medartis, Ag., Mondeal Medical Systems Gmbh, Mueller Sports Medicine Inc., Ortho Europe, Orthofix International Nv., Orthopro Llc, Orthrocare Innovation Llc, Ossur, Ottobock Healthcare Gmbh., Small Bone Innovations Inc., Smith & Nephew Inc., Stryker Corporation, Synthes Inc., Tornier Bv, Vilex Inc., Wright Medical Technology Inc. and Zimmer Holdings, Inc.
