DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Patient Handling Equipment Market 2018-2022" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The analysts forecast the global patient handling equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 7.61% during the period 2018-2022.
Patient handling in healthcare facilities such as hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers involves the use of assistive devices such as lifts, stretchers, wheelchairs, beds, trolleys, and grab rails to ensure that patients can be mobilized, transferred, or repositioned safely and to avoid the performing of high-risk manual patient handling tasks by care providers.
The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is the advances in design and technology of patient handling equipment. Technological advances and improvements in the design of patient handling equipment make the use of the equipment easy for care providers and enhance the comfort for patients.
One of the major drivers for this market is the increasing prevalence of disabilities. According to the CDC, in 2017, over 30 million US adults were suffering from osteoarthiritis. The prevalence of diseases and conditions such as chronic wounds, stroke, paralysis, and obesity is increasing, in turn, fostering the demand for patient handling equipment.
The report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is the high cost of advanced patient handling equipment. Organizations installing these patient handling devices also have to bear additional costs associated with training employees on device use. Due to budget constraints, many end-users are reluctant to purchase advanced patient handling equipment, in turn, limiting the growth of the global patient handling equipment market.
