Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 21st Century Scientific, Hoveround, Karma Mobility, Magic Mobility, and Medline Industries.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is automation of manually operated products. Clinical mobility products such as wheelchairs are used in healthcare facilities to improve the mobility of patients. Manual wheelchairs need the assistance of another person to move them from one place to another. In operation theatres and patient wards, wheeled stretchers are used. In the recent years, with the advances in technology, mobility products have become automated and can be controlled and operated with minimal human effort.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is enhanced post-treatment services. Advanced medical facilities provide better diagnostics services, medical therapies, and machine-assisted surgeries, which are supported by various post-treatment services such as critical care, neonatal care, and intensive care. These services are carried out in specially designed units, which have advanced clinical mobility products. In facilities such as intensive care units (ICUs) and critical care units, the patients are kept under observation for recovery. During the recovery phase, patients are unable to move from one place to another without support. Therefore, these patients need attendant-propelled and powered wheelchairs.
