|Wright Medical Group, Inc. is a Delaware Corporation. The Company through Wright Medical Technology, Inc. (WMT) and other operating subsidiaries (Wright), is a global orthopaedic medical device company specializing in the design, manufacture and marketing of devices and biologic products for extremity, hip and knee repair and reconstruction. It is a provider of surgical solutions for the foot and ankle market. Reconstructive devices are used to replace or repair knee, hip and other joints and bones that have deteriorated or have been damaged through disease or injury. Biologics are used to replace damaged or diseased bone, to stimulate bone growth and to provide other biological solutions for surgeons and their patients. Within these markets, it focuses on the higher-growth sectors of the orthopaedic industry, such as the foot and ankle market, as well as on the integration of its biologic products into reconstructive procedures and other orthopaedic applications. Foot and ankle reconstruction includes implants and other devices to replace or reconstruct injured or diseased joints and bones in the foot and ankle. The Company’s biologic products are primarily used in extremity-related procedures as well as in trauma and tumor induced voids of the long bones, joint replacements and some spine procedures. Biologic products provide a lower morbidity solution to ‘autografting,’ a procedure that involves harvesting a patient’s own bone or soft tissue and transplanting it to a different site. The Company’s flagship, PRO-DENSE® injectable regenerative graft is an osteoconductive bone graft which provides the benefits of injectability, hardness to support bone and predictable bone regeneration. Soft tissue repair products, such as its GRAFTJACKET® regenerative tissue matrix, enable the repair of soft tissue such as tendons (e.g., rotator cuff and Achilles), ligaments or chronic wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers. The Company’s products are strictly regulated by the FDA under the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDC Act). Some of its products are also regulated by state agencies.|
