Application Of Physiotherapy Equipment Market:
1. Musculoskeletal Applications
2. Neurological Applications
3. Cardiovascular & Pulmonary Applications
4. Pediatric Applications
5. Gynecological Applications
In 2018, the musculoskeletal applications segment accounted for the largest share of the market, followed by the neurological applications segment. The large share of the musculoskeletal applications segment is attributed to the rising incidence of musculoskeletal disorders, growth in the geriatric population, and the increasing number of accidents.
The electrotherapy equipment segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2018 and 2024. Growth in this segment is mainly driven by the increasing adoption of electric stimulation-based techniques for physiotherapy. Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), specifically functional electrical stimulation (FES) that compensates for voluntary motion, and therapeutic electrical stimulation (TES) aimed at muscle strengthening and recovery from paralysis are widely used in clinical settings for rehabilitation, especially for stroke.
Cybertherapy is another technological advancement spurring market growth. In cybertherapy, patients use a wireless interface with their doctors. The use of eTherapy is also gaining wider acceptance as it is associated with a wide range of benefits for medical professionals and patients in need of physiological treatments. Such technological advances will propel the demand for physiotherapy products in the forecast period.
