Wright Medical Group, with headquarters in Arlington, Tennessee, is a specialty orthopedics company that makes extremity implants for the hand, elbow, foot and ankle, among other things.
In the last five years, the company has reduced headcount by 352 taking employment to 898 as of 2013.
CORRECTION: The publishers of the report on which the slideshow is based - EvaluateMedTech - previously described these companies as firers. They have amended the report to reflect that headcount have been reduced in these companies. That could be because of workers being fired, but also sale of business units or other reasons that can cause headcount to shrink.
