Muscle stimulation is a technique that utilises electrical impulses as therapy on the muscle for relieving chronic pain. This technique utilises transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator (TENS), burst mode alternating current (BMAC), interferential (IF) and neuromuscular electric stimulation (NMES) modalities. These devices are widely used for the treatment of chronic pain in the leg and back. Muscle stimulation devices are mainly used by patients suffering from chronic pain and by athletes for relieving muscle pain. Muscle stimulation devices are experiencing increasing adoption among healthcare practitioners and athletes, especially in the U.S. and Western Europe.
Market Value Forecast
In terms of value, the global market for muscle stimulation devices is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period.
The global muscle stimulation devices market is driven by factors such as increasing healthcare expenditure. Also, increased global demand for fitness products along with increased availability and affordability of muscle stimulation devices is boosting the market. Growing preference for muscle stimulation devices among physiotherapists for the treatment of chronic pain and muscle recovery is also contributing significantly to the growth of the muscle stimulation devices market. With more and more people opting for muscle stimulation devices as the therapy ensures reduction in the waist circumference, there is robust growth of the muscle stimulation devices market. Though the global muscle stimulation devices market is expected to show a healthy growth during the forecast period, the lack of usage guidelines along with low awareness regarding the available chronic treatment options and the availability of substitute products are major concerns for the overall growth of this market.
