NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The orthopedic braces & support, casting & splints market is driven by growing hip and knee replacement surgeries globally. Furthermore the rising coverage of healthcare and increasing prevalence of obesity is expected to be the most vital reason for expansion of the braces and support market growth. However, there are few hindrances, which further can affect the use of products such as braces, supports, casting and splints.
In 2010, a survey by National Health and Nutrition Examination, there were some extracted conclusions about the rising obesity in the region such as, there were around two in three people were considered to be obese, more than one in 20 people were considered as extreme obese. Orthopaedic surgeon should be aware of various supports and braces for the treatment of bone disorders such as osteoporosis and osteopenia. Severe cases of spinal instability always need a Hohmann overbridging brace, whereas the milder form of motion-segment instability is treated with one of the elastic supports. In cases of osteoporosis of the spine and insufficiency of the lumbosacral junction the Lindemann 2/3 semi-elastic brace is prescribed. Norton and Brown (1957) studied that braces can help in immobilization of the joints for treating the fractures and other complications. Specifically they concluded the result for effect of braces on the movement of the lumbosacral area and never found total immobilization. The effect of lumbar supports is a decline angle for angle of flexion and extension. Axial rotation and lateral bending is not reduced.
Technetium-99m is the preferred radioisotope for medical imaging due to its short half-life and appropriate energy emission for perfect image. It is generated by source named molybdenum, which is an abundantly present on earth. However, the process of producing its daughter isotope is a rigorous task it represents a high value in terms of availability.
In close co-operation with doctors and Orthopaedic technicians, orthopedic industries has developed innovative products and product concepts, which depending on the goal of the therapy are effective in supporting and improving immobility, unloading damaged areas of joints and reassuring & reactivating the patient. Few orthotic braces are used indirectly, meaning they just support the injured joints in the body. For instance, an ankle foot orthotic device (AFO) that is used to address drop foot – common symptom after a stroke that results in the loss of the ability to control the ankle joint – the use of an AFO in this situation maintains the actual posture of the foot and ankle, allowing the patient to walk without any problem.
