Orthopedic Braces & Supports Market Overview and Introduction
Orthopedic braces and supports are medical devices that provide the body with the assistance and comfort needed to either recover from an injury or to take precautions from having any injury. Some orthotic braces are used passively, meaning that they simply support the injured or weakened body part. They are used to facilitate healing following an injury to the spine or related soft tissues, and to reduce pain by restricting mobility of the trunk, etc.
The global orthopedic braces & supports market is primarily driven by the increasing incidents of orthopedic diseases & disorders, globally. According to the WHO, musculoskeletal conditions are the leading contributors to disability worldwide with low back pain being the single leading cause of disability globally. Moreover, the rising number of individuals suffering from chronic venous diseases, experiencing increased pressure strains on the leg veins, is anticipated to further propel market growth during the forecast period. Continuously evolving lifestyles have led to minimal physical activity, in turn, propelling the number of obesity-related ailments. Furthermore, rising incidents of sports injuries and accidents are resulting in the increased demand for orthopedic braces & support.
