The distal radius plate market is expected to grow moderately over the forecast period. This growth is because of the sheer number of distal radius plates sold, resulting from the high incidence of such fractures due to falls. This is increasingly the case with the developing active and elderly population that is at a higher risk of radial fractures.
Plate and screw medical devices are used to treat a variety of indications, including in the shoulder, elbow and distal radius market. This provides better bone fusion and improves patient outcome. Plates are like internal splints that hold the broken pieces of bone together. They are attached to the bone with screws. Plates may be left in place after healing is complete, or they may be removed. Screws are used for internal fixation more often than any other type of implant. Although the screw is a simple device, there are different designs based on the type of fracture and how the screw will be used. Screws come in different sizes for use with bones of different sizes.
