Medical Dynamometers Market By Type (Pinch Gauge, Squeeze Dynamometers, Chest Dynamometers, Hand Dynamometers, Push-pull Dynamometers, Others), By Application (Neurology, Musculoskeletal, Cardiology, Trauma, Others), By Usage Area (Hospitals And Clinics, Rehabilitation Centers, Research And Academia) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Industry Outlook

Growing health awareness, increasing orthopedic surgeries performed worldwide, and growing indulgence in sports and athletic activities, and therefore sports injuries, have resulted in a higher demand for rehabilitation and feedback treatments. The increased prevalence of sports injuries among young people has resulted in an increase in physiotherapy and rehabilitation treatments. Some common sports injuries are plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff tears, sprains, strains, and cartilage tears. Furthermore, a large pool of the world's geriatric population is reported to undergo surgeries for joint replacement, cartilage damage, and musculoskeletal injuries. As reported by the International Osteoporosis Foundation, every year, osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures. It is also estimated that by 200, there will be a 310% increase in hip fractures in men and a 240% increase in hip fractures in women from 1990.

Medical dynamometers are widely used as a part of rehabilitation treatments for patients suffering from musculoskeletal injuries, disorders, and various surgeries. Medical dynamometers assist in reinstating muscular and joint strength while efficiently ensuring pain management and the restoration of movements. As a result, devices are frequently used to accelerate recovery from disorders characterized by acute and chronic pain.

Market Synopsis

Hand dynamometers are expected to be the largest product segment.

There is a wide range of dynamometers available on the market, with the objective of treating different conditions or based on the mechanism of operation. However, in all the dynamometers, the thenar and hypothenar eminences are supported in the hind part of the handle, restricting the thumb action, while the rest of the fingers are involved at the front part of the handle. As described by the American Society of Hand Therapists, hand instruments are considered the gold standard for documentation of grip strength. Several studies have compared new and old tools with different transmission means and handle shapes. Higher incidences of hand and joint injuries also contribute to the greater demand for hand dynamometers.

The growing incidence of sports and age-related injuries among the general population is one of the prime factors supporting the dominance of the musculoskeletal segment in terms of applications. Moreover, these devices are also used in hospitals before and after orthopedic surgery to determine patient strength and, therefore, the duration of the hospital stay. Extensive literature has been available describing the relationship between grip strength and functional and clinical parameters in different populations. Therefore, the measurement of maximal grip strengths is a vital element of following orthopedic patients during aging, injury, rehabilitation, therapeutic trials, and training. In musculoskeletal patients, dynamometers are used to estimate the muscle strength generated by flexor muscles.

Rehabilitation centers will experience the greatest market growth.

In terms of revenue, hospitals and clinics are the largest usage area for medical dynamometers. Higher purchasing power, greater patient footfall, and higher awareness are some of the factors that support the dominance of the hospital segment. Additionally, the varied nature of incoming patients also makes the use of medical dynamometers imperative in hospitals. On the other hand, rehabilitation centers are anticipated to be the fastest-progressing user segment during the forecast period. Factors such as healthcare facility decentralization and the need to reduce hospital stays to cut costs have resulted in an influx of patients to independent rehab centers and physiotherapy clinics.

larger disease incidence and awareness to support the dominance of the North American market

In terms of regional demarcation, the global medical dynamometer market is categorized into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. Of these, North America holds command of the global market and will retain its command with a marginal decrease in its market share, cannibalized by the emerging markets of Asia Pacific and Latin America. The market in North America is driven by a large pool of individuals with sports and age-related injuries, as well as widespread early-stage diagnoses of tendon disorders and arthritis. Asia Pacific, on the other hand, is anticipated to witness the fastest market growth during the forecast period. Consistently growing populations, increasing life expectancy, and strong purchasing power are the key attributes favoring the growth of the Asia-Pacific market.
