Global Orthopedic Devices Market by Anatomy and Type of Devices - Forecast to 2021 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

August 29, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 29, 2018--The “Orthopedic Devices Market: By Anatomy; By Type of Devices - Forecast 2016-2021” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The North American market for orthotic devices is very organized and mature, and has been regulated by the regulatory authorities such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Health Canada over a long time.

The FDA’s Centre for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) regulates the entry of new devices into the market as well as monitors the safety and quality of the marketed products regularly to prevent substandard or unsafe devices from reaching the patients.

The laws for approval of new orthotic devices are quite stringent in the U.S. which ensures that the approved products are safe and effective in patients. Moreover, the laws in North America also regulate the international trade of orthotic products and the imported products need to demonstrate their safety and quality before entering into the North American market.

Each device is given a CE mark certification which indicates its quality. The producers of devices need to get CE approval for their devices, without which the products cannot be marketed.

The region also requires the prescribing clinician to be a certified orthotists. Hence, the designing of custom-made devices can be done only by certified clinicians.

The healthcare reimbursement models of the U.S. government are also very stringent and take measures to ensure needy patients are reimbursed while avoiding Medicaid frauds. For instance, Medicare has a five-year period rule under which it replaces orthotic devices for patients only if the device is lost; irreparably damaged or the patient’s medical condition changes such that the device no longer meets the patients’ needs.
