Limited Mobility of Geriatrics Pose a High Risk of Developing Pressure Ulcers

“An increasing number of obese population worldwide is boosting the growth of the global market for pressure relief devices,” points out a TMR analyst. The prevalence of obesity has doubled between 1980 and 2014, according to the World Health Organization. The increasing obese population is displaying an increased demand for pressure relief devices such as mattress overlays and specialty beds to prevent pressure ulcers.

The increasing geriatric population is also fuelling demand for pressure relief devices. This is because elderly people have high chances of developing pressure ulcers due to reduced blood flow, damaged nerves, and limited mobility.

Unfavorable Reimbursement Policies Adversely Affect Uptake of Pressure Relief Devices

High cost of pressure relief devices and unfavorable reimbursement policies for the same are impeding this market’s growth. Changes in reimbursement policies for pressure relief devices in recent years have been detrimental to the market’s growth. This is because treatment of pressure ulcers is an expensive affair, for which reimbursement is essential for the patient. For example, the price range of an air fluidized therapy bed is from US$15,000 to US$25,000. Moreover, adoption of reimbursement restrictions for pressure ulcers on the part of private insurers, especially in developing nations such as China, India, Brazil, and Mexico is restraining the market’s growth.

The global market for pressure relief devices is expected to reach a valuation of US$2.8 bn by 2020. On the basis of device type, low-tech devices led with 86.9% of the overall market in 2013. This segment is expected to display a higher growth rate over its counterpart hi-tech device segment in the coming years. This growth is mainly owing to the advantages of low-tech devices pertaining to prevention of ulcer, easy operability, and cost effectiveness.
