The ASPs of external fixation devices will continue to increase across the board. Price increases will continue to match inflation, though the increase will settle off as more competitors come out with products, thereby forcing manufacturers to be competitive in terms of their pricing.
External fixation is a type of osseous fixation commonly used to treat bone trauma cases and other orthopedic problems. This form of reduction requires drilling holes into unaffected regions of bone around the fracture and screwing bolts or wires into the holes. External fixation is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed by placing a scaffolding frame with associated wires, pins, or both wires and pins on the outside of the damaged extremity. Small pins and wires are then used to hold the bone in its intended position.
