Market Outline: Trauma Fixation Devices Market


Trauma is the condition characterized by damage or injury to the biological organ caused by physical harm from an external source. Trauma fixation devices are used in the treatment of internal injuries like fractures, bruises, dislocations and external cuts and burns. Trauma fixation devices are classified into internal fixation devices and external fixation devices. Internal fixation devices are implanted inside the body for stabilization of dislocations and fractures whereas, external fixation devices are used to temporary fix the fractures and provide support to the affected bone in case of severe soft tissue damage, open fractures, and burn injuries.


Market Dynamics: Trauma Fixation Devices Market


Growing geriatric population around the globe, rise in prevalence of osteoporosis and other bone diseases in elderly people, increase in number of accidents and burn injuries, and rise in disposable income are anticipated to fuel the market over the forecast period.
