Global Medical Assistive Technologies Market- Focus on Product, End-User, Countries, Patents, Market Share, and Competitive Landscape - Analysis and Forecast (2017-2025)

As per the World Health Organization (WHO) statistics, globally more than one billion people require one or more assistive products. Moreover, with the aging global population and rise in the non-communicable diseases, more than two billion people will need at least one assistive product by 2050, with several older people needing two or more. Furthermore, an estimated 285 million people are visually impaired worldwide. Around 70 million people need a wheelchair, and another 360 million people globally, have moderate to profound hearing loss. The rates of disability are increasing due to aging populations and increase in chronic health conditions, which increases the medical assistive technologies' adoption rate. However, people with disabilities have lesser access to healthcare services, and therefore, unfulfilled health care needs.

The medical assistive technologies are the products, equipment or devices that are used to improve or the functional disabilities. The assistive technology devices used by the disabled people can be hardware, software or stand-alone devices. These devices are used to support vocational aids, assistive listening & environmental aids, aids for daily living, visual & learning aids, mobility aids, and others. The medical assistive technologies provide the devices that help to overcome the cognitive difficulties, impairments, in disabled & geriatric population.

The assistive devices and technologies related to the hearing and vision are defined by the World Health Organization (WHO), as prosthetics, mobility aides, hearing aids, visual aids, and specialized computer software and hardware increase mobility, hearing, vision and communication capacities. These technologies are of immense help to the people with special needs, for instance, to the people with physical challenges, for living a self-dependent, and dignified life, ensuring a regular, active, and healthy social interaction.

Disability, which is a complex and multi-dimensional term refers to impairments, limitations on the activity, and restrictions on the participation which is a combination of medical, and contextual factors. There prevail diversified facets among the people with medical impairment i.e. some are born with a disabling condition, others acquire a disability through injury or a chronic disease, while others develop a disability at an older age. However, the health needs for disabled people also vary depending on the type of limitation, and the primary health conditions in which some require high healthcare needs while others do not.

The global medical assistive technologies market witnessed tremendous development in the assistive technologies and have evolved both in terms of performance and characteristics. Access to the assistive devices is essential for people (geriatric & disabled) with challenges for a harmonious interaction in the professional, social and community life.
