Patient handling equipment provides mobility to patients who lack control of their bodies. It helps patients in sitting, standing, and walking and ensures bed mobility, lateral transfers, and hoisting. Besides this, it also assists in reducing the risk of complications, such as deep vein thrombosis, skin tears, chest infections, urinary tract infections, pressure ulcers, and falls. Consequently, it finds application in intensive care units (ICUs), nursing homes, and rehabilitation and other medical centers across the globe.
The increasing geriatric population, coupled with the rising hazards of injuries caused during manual patient handling (MPH), represents one of the key factors contributing to the growth of the market. Additionally, governing agencies of several countries are implementing stringent regulations to increase the adoption of protective equipment and reduce MPH, which is driving the market further. As a result, governing authorities are also investing in hospital infrastructure to increase the overall patient handling capabilities of public healthcare systems. This, along with the growing prevalence of disabilities among individuals, is increasing the need for patient lifting equipment, such as wheelchairs and mobile lifts. Other major factors, including the rising utilization of patient handling equipment during critical surgeries and the advancements in equipment, such as better bed frames, adjustable angles, support surfaces, electric backrest, shear and friction reduction and battery backups, are anticipated to create a favorable market outlook.
