(PharmaNewsWire.Com, March 24, 2020 ) Growth in the orthopedic braces and supports market is primarily driven by the increasing prevalence of orthopedic diseases & disorders, continuous product commercialization, greater product affordability and market availability, rising number of sports and accident-related injuries, and growing public awareness related to preventive care.
Ligament injury is the largest application segment of the orthopedic braces and supports market
Orthopedic bracing and support products are used for the clinical management of ligament injuries such as anterior cruciate ligament, posterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament, lateral collateral ligament, and coronary ligament injuries. The large share of the ligament injury segment can be attributed to increasing public participation in sports & athletic activities (coupled with the rising incidence of sports-related injuries), rising number of accidents worldwide, and the growing availability of medical reimbursement for ligament injuries

In hospitals & surgical centers, orthopedic bracing and support products are used for the clinical management of orthopedic conditions (such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and fractures), preventive care, post-operative patient rehabilitation, osteoarthritis management, and maxillofacial procedures.
