BONEZONE is owned and produced by ORTHOWORLD®, a specialty publishing firm solely focused on the global orthopaedic market. Founded in 1992 by orthopaedic industry executives, ORTHOWORLD's early days were spent fulfilling requests for market intelligence and merger and acquisition assistance. This experience provided a unique, high-level, strategically-oriented foundation and rapport upon which BONEZONE was conceived.
In direct response to sourcing and manufacturing challenges voiced by orthopaedic device company professionals, BONEZONE launched in the fall of 2002 to an engaged readership of R&D engineers, supply chain managers and procurement professionals. By 2012, readership expanded to include executive management and quality/regulatory/clinical affairs professionals with the interests of marketing folks beginning to pique under pressures from UDI initiatives and design for manufacturability mandates.
In addition to readership diversity, the print magazine is now accompanied by a tablet-friendly ePub, monthly eNewsletters, a robust website and, since June 2005, OMTEC®, the "live" version of all of the BONEZONE counterparts.
