A new market study, titled “Technologies for Long-term Care and Home Healthcare: Global Markets” has been featured on WiseGuyReports.
It’s a well-known fact that the global population is aging. More precisely, there are an increasing number of seniors in the total population. The large and growing geriatric population worldwide is fueling the demand for elder health care products and technologies.
Elder care technologies are broadly defined as products and systems that increase the health status and quality of life for seniors. In this report, elder care technologies include two groups of monitoring systems: home tele-health and safety monitoring. Home tele-health is the use of technology to deliver care in a patient’s place of residence. Home tele-health includes monitoring of the patient’s physiological parameters and symptoms as well as education about the patient’s condition. Using home tele-health, a senior can stay connected to a healthcare professional or caregiver from home, using regular telephone lines, the internet and cellphones. In this report, safety monitoring systems represent the intersection of high-tech gadgetry and medicine to maintain the well-being of seniors at home or on the go. Mr. H. Roshan (a physiotherapist from Ahmed Orthopedic Hospital) says, “Various safety aids have given advantages to older patients who are bedridden due to certain health problems.” In this study, safety monitoring technologies include assist-call devices, medication management products, wander management systems, fall management devices, smart home systems and robotically enhanced mobility assistance devices. These technologies increase, maintain and improve the functional capabilities, independence and safety of seniors.
The elder care technology industry consists of several players of all sizes, including large global companies, small regional players, tiny startup companies and universities. These include AMC Health, BioTelemetry, Inc., Boston Scientific, Biotronik SE & Co. KG, Bosch Healthcare, Care Innovations, LLC, Honeywell Life Care Solutions (part of Honeywell International), LifeWatch AG, Medtronic Plc., Omron Healthcare, Inc. (part of Omron Corp.), Philips Healthcare (part of Koninklijke Philips N.V.), St. Jude Medical, Inc., VRI, Inc. and many more.
Given the growing number of seniors, increasing life-expectancy, skyrocketing healthcare costs, growing shortage of healthcare professionals and caregivers and seniors’ preference to age in place (lead an independent and active life as long as possible), the market for elder care technologies including home tele-health and safety monitoring is growing at an exponential rate. The demand for more practical and affordable elder care technologies to enhance the quality and efficiency of care is growing worldwide. According to research report, the global market for elder care technology is expected to attain revenue of $13.6 billion by 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.2%.
This report focuses on the global market for long-term care and home healthcare technologies used in elder care, specifically home tele-health and safety monitoring. The report provides an updated review of elder care technologies including types and applications. This report does not include the most common assistive devices (e.g., vision, hearing and daily living aids). Instead, it focuses on information and communication technologies. The report analyzes the current trends, drivers and challenges in long term care and home healthcare in regard to elder care.
The report also covers the market for long-term care and home healthcare technologies by end user and application. The end users for long-term care and home healthcare technologies are categorized as hospitals and nursing homes, home care organization, patients and their families. The report covers market application areas, such as monitoring, skilled nursing care, education and awareness and others (palliative, hospice care, rehabilitation therapy, etc.).
The scope of the study is global. Research report analyzes each market and its application, regulatory environment, new products, advancements and market projections. Also included in the report are relevant patent analyses and comprehensive profiles of companies that lead the long-term care and home healthcare technology industry. Many of the players in this industry deal with several different technologies discussed in this report. They include Philips Healthcare (part of Koninklijke Philips N.V.), Medtronic Plc., Honeywell Life Care Solutions (part of Honeywell International), Omron Healthcare, Inc. (part of Omron Corp.), Care Innovations, St. Jude Medical, Boston Scientific, Biotronik and Bosch Healthcare.
