The bone fracture of any form often leads to using of orthopedic braces and support systems to develop the immobilization of the patient’s fractured part. Fractures, such as osteoporotic vertebral fracture, which is among the most severe forms of osteoporotic fractures, leads to wide usage of braces, such as TLSO (Thoracic Lumbar Sacral Orthosis).

As per a publication in the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS), each year more than 700,000 men and women suffer from the spinal compression fracture. According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), globally, about 8.9 million fractures happen annually, which affects a high percentage of women above the age of 50 years. In addition, the lifetime risk for the hip, forearm, and vertebral fractures are reaching clinical attention about 40% globally, which has an equivalent risk compared to cardiovascular disease.

In developed markets, the increasing disposable income and better adoption rate of new technologies in the hospitals and orthopedic centers are leading to early diagnosis and demand for orthopedic braces and support systems, thus, becoming one of the primary driving factors for this market.
