As per the report, the rapid advancements in the healthcare industry in the past few decades have resulted in revolutionized medical equipment and advanced devices which carry the potential to provide effective treatment to patients across the world. Likewise, the medical technology of prostheses has also done a great service by means of replacing artificial limbs with the injured or impaired limbs such as arms or legs.
More specifically, the transfemoral prosthesis, also known as the above-knee prosthetics, can be perceived as an artificial limb that takes the place of the amputated leg above the knee. The above-knee prosthesis or transfemoral prosthesis consists of a socket that can be affixed with the residual limb, shank, prosthetic knee, and foot-ankle aggregation. The numerous technological advancements and innovations in the medical sector have provided patients across the world with superior quality artificial limbs manufactured with the usage of lighter and excellent materials such as carbon fiber, silicon or PVC, which majorly accelerates the demand of above knee prostheses in the healthcare industry. Attributing to which, the global above knee prosthetics market is projected to elevate rapidly in the forthcoming future.
In addition to that, the growing prevalence of chronic ailments among the masses such as diabetes and vascular diseases is further giving rise to amputations of limbs globally, therefore positively fueling the growth of the global above knee prosthetics market in the given timeframe.
On the other note, the replacement of impaired limbs with the artificial limb can be money-exhaustive as well as low disposable income, in few developing regions, may restrict the demand of above knee prosthetics.
