OrthoPediatrics, a company focused exclusively on advancing the field of pediatric orthopedics, announced today the limited release of the Mitchell Ponseti Plus Bar (“MP+”) as part of its Specialty Bracing portfolio for kids with clubfoot. The new MP+ Bar features several innovations from their traditional Bar, which was originally launched in 2004. These enhancements include:
- Patented Modular Quick-Clip technology
- Elastomer bumpers on the heels
- An easy adjust bar-lock
- Engraved angle indicators
- Engraved bar measurements
- Increased width range for custom fit
The company is currently developing the MP Lite boots & bar system, which will be available in markets outside the United States.
In 2022, OrthoPediatrics acquired Iowa-based MD Orthopedics, and their custom fit bracing system, which is based on the Ponseti Technique - the gold standard treatment for clubfoot. While the treatment of clubfoot will remain a major focus, OrthoPediatrics plans to continue leveraging internal resources to launch new innovative products that address the large unmet needs for specialty bracing within the pediatric orthopedic market – an expansion of the company’s Total Addressable Market which it estimates to be approximately $600 million.
