The branch of orthopedics deals with the skeletal system, and joints, muscles, and ligaments associated with it. Orthopedic surgeries have been playing a vital role in correction and prevention of disorders related to the skeletal system. However, the world of orthopedic surgery was revolutionized with the introduction of orthopedic surgical power tools. They are currently an integral part of modern operative orthopedics. Surgeons often use these electrically operated devices during surgeries, in order to drill through bones and incorporate implants in respective holes. The biggest advantage of orthopedic power tools is that they enable surgeons to perform the same surgical procedures with greater pace, more precision, and higher accuracy.
Used in a wide range of surgical aspects, including everything from wound management to pulse lavage, these power tools are primarily used in treating long bone fractures. Over the years, orthopedic power tools have evolved into lightweight devices, which are much easier to use than they were earlier. They are easy-to-assemble, highly modular, and economically affordable. Owing to consistently positive performance, orthopedic surgical power tools have been popular in the global market.
Perpetual prevalence of osteoporosis and a few other ailments play a major role in propeling the demand for orthopedic surgeries, and eventually power tools as well. With growing geriatric population, osteoporosis is highly pronounced worldwide, especially in developing nations. Increasing incidences of fragile fractures in wrist, hip, and spine are further contributing to the demand for orthopedic surgical power tools. Technological and operational advancements in tool designs over the years, counts among the top factors influencing the market growth. Several governments and private authorities are increasingly promoting regulations regarding operating room supply standardization. This is also a crucial driving factor for the power tools market.
Orthopedic Surgical Power Tools Types
Orthopedic surgical power tools are available in four key types, including large bone orthopedic power tools, small bone orthopedic power tools, high-speed orthopedic power tools, and orthopedic reamers. The technology used for each tool may however differ. Based on technology, there are three categories, including pneumatic-powered systems, electric-powered systems, and battery operated-powered systems. Traditional power tools and disposable power tools are also the two major segments of this market. The preference for disposable/single-use tools from conventional/reusable tools is increasing since the past few years. The latter are high maintenance and expensive, whereas the former are convenient and cost-effective.
