The geriatric population is rapidly growing across the world. Almost 95% of the global geriatric population need assistance for moving and doing their daily work. Apart from this, the disabled patients’ pool worldwide is also expanding at an alarming speed, thanks to the increasing incidence of accidents in the global arena. Elderly and disabled assistive devices are specially designed devices that can compensate for their disability to a certain extent, thereby improving the quality of life of these people.
According to the research report, the worldwide increase in the geriatric as well as the disabled population is the main factor behind the growing demand for elderly and disabled assistive devices around the world. The technical advancements in these devices are also boosting this market significantly.
The report studies the global elderly and disabled assistive devices on the basis of the type of device and the regional distribution of this market. Based on the type of device, the market has been categorized into vision and reading aids, hearing aids, medical furniture and bathroom safety products, and medical mobility aids and ambulatory devices.
On account of a large pool of patients suffering from hearing impairment, the demand for hearing aid devices was the highest in 2012.
