Dublin, Dec. 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/7rmnj5/global_foot_and) has announced the addition of the "Global Foot and Ankle Devices Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.
An increase in the number of total ankle replacement procedures and the preference for TAR over fusion procedures is one of the major trends expected to propel the growth of the market. TAR procedures enable flexibility of the ankles post-surgery, unlike the rigidity provided by fusion procedures.
According to the report, an increase in the elderly population is one of the main drivers of the market. Elderly people are more susceptible to fall-related fractures, as the bone density decreases with old age. In addition, the increased prevalence of osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis in the elderly population has increased the demand for foot and ankle devices.
Further, the report states that lack of reimbursement benefits is one of the key challenges faced by the market. Cost containment measures in the Healthcare sector of various developed nations have resulted in reduced Medicaid and Medicare reimbursements.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
