Geriatric care devices are used for planning healthcare management and coordinating care of the aged population and people with physical or mental impairments. These products comfort the daily activities of aged people, provide them with long-term care needs, and enhance their quality of life. These devices include wheelchairs, walkers, and adult diapers for daily routine. Geriatric care devices promote nursing at home level.
The factors that drive the geriatric care devices market include rise in geriatric population; increase in prevalence of medical complications such as respiratory, neurological, orthopedic, and cardiovascular diseases; and technological advancements such as evolution of specialty robots that help aged people in their routine activities. Moreover, growth in demand for home care services and increase in healthcare expenditure fuel the market growth.
However, high costs of these products and high risk of accidents restrain the market growth. Advancement in healthcare infrastructure, increase in requirements of a quality life by senior citizens, and development of federal healthcare reforms in emerging countries are expected to boost the market growth in the near future.
