Foot drop implants market analysis

Extensive research carried out by the analysts at Technavio has shown that the global foot drop implants market will witness fast-paced growth and will post a staggering CAGR of more than 9% over the forecast period. One of the major factors fuelling the demand for foot drop implants is the growing incidence of diabetic neuropathy. The high blood sugar levels damage the nerve fibers throughout the body, which will lead to an augmented demand for foot drop implants. According to CDC 2014 statistics, nearly 29 million individuals in the US have diabetes, of which 26% of individuals with type 2 diabetes have witnessed a nerve damage during diagnosis.

Foot drop implants market trends

The growing popularity of hammertoe implants is one of the recent trends gaining significant traction in the market. An estimated 500,000 surgical procedures are performed for the treatment of hammertoes each year. Hammertoe implants help in the fixation of bones in osteotomies and reconstruction of lesser toes. Several hammertoe implants are currently available in the market, such as Nextra Hammertoe Correction system offered by Nextremity Solutions consisting RevLock precision locking system that provides adjustability and versatility.

Moreover, in December 2015, Instratek launched the ToeTac single-use kit for the operative repair of hammertoe deformities. The ToeTac implant includes two threaded ends that fit into the bone. The first end is a common bone thread and the second end is interrupted by slots that enable the implant to flex in response to insertion forces. This implant is designed to fit a range of anatomies, leading to its increased adoption over the estimated period.
