Management of Waterborne Pathogens and Increased Capabilities in Clinical Studies Support Market Growth

Hydrotherapy and aquatic therapy is proving to be useful for orthopedic and neurology applications. However, certain limitations of these techniques are anticipated to impede market growth.

A major challenge that is affecting the growth of the hydrotherapy / aquatic therapy - pool and plunge tank equipment market is the problem of waterborne pathogen transmission in hospital settings. Hospital water and water-related devices, such as hydrotherapy tanks and pools, are moist most of the time. This moisture creates a favorable environment for the formation of waterborne pathogens that affect the quality of life of patients. Hence, companies in the hydrotherapy / aquatic therapy - pool and plunge tank equipment market should educate hospitals to establish a waterborne pathogen team that overlooks infection control and risk management.

Another challenge that is likely to negatively influence the growth of the hydrotherapy / aquatic therapy - pool and plunge tank equipment market is the lack of clinical evidence that validates the effectiveness of hydrotherapy and aquatic therapy for patients. For instance, dry hydrotherapy is a novel treatment addition to the hydrotherapy / aquatic therapy - pool and plunge tank equipment landscape. However, the scarcity of published studies regarding dry hydrotherapy Equipment draws no definitive conclusion about the efficacy of these devices. Hence, companies in the hydrotherapy / aquatic therapy - pool and plunge tank equipment market are increasing their efforts to reach full potential in the number of participants that get actively involved in clinical research studies.
