report has been added to's

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'
