"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
Wrist replacement refers to the procedure of the replacement of the wrist or the provision of support to the wrist that is damaged or unable to undertake its normal functions. Wrist replacement is often undertaken as a treatment for various forms of arthritis such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. It can also be done for injuries relating to the wrist and for the correction of deformities. The number of wrist replacement procedures are increasing gradually owing to the innovative technology for manufacturing orthopedic implants and rise in procedures in the outpatient setting. Furthermore, new product launches and strategic collaboration are expected to augment the global wrist replacement market. For example, in December 2017, OrthoPediatrics Corp. launched Wrist Fusion Plate System for pediatrics to expand their PediFrag franchise.
The global wrist replacement market is anticipated to grow, owing to several factors such as the increased prevalence of various forms of arthritis such as osteoarthritis & rheumatoid arthritis, increase in injuries, increasing demand for normal functioning, increase in comorbidities, and increase in awareness of the medical procedures. According to the Arthritis Foundation, arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the U.S., with the most common type of arthritis being osteoarthritis. This trend, combined with other factors, are expected to positively drive the market forward.
