Hysterometer is a sounding device that is used to measure the uterus. This device is used for preliminary hysterometry and is used to assess the total uterine depth. It is sometimes referred to as an uteromreter for measuring the depth of the uterine cavity and the cervix. This measurement and assessment of uterine depth are done for the estimation of the endometrial cavity. This estimation helps in reducing intrauterine device (IUD) failure. Hysterometers are used in gynecology and are particularly suitable for procedures of cervix dilation before IUD insertion.
The hysterometer market is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace in the next few years. Factors such as the rise in the prevalence of gynecological diseases and an increase in awareness among women regarding gynecological disorders and complications are expected to propel the global hysterometer market. According to The Johns Hopkins University data, it is estimated that currently, around 5 million women of childbearing age in the U.S. have endometriosis. Moreover, a rise in the female geriatric population who comes under reproductive age is a major driver of the global hysterometer market. As an aging female population is more prone to Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) which is investigated by hysterometer. According to UNO data, in 2017, 54% of the total global geriatric population of 962 million consisted of women aged 60 years or above. Advancements in technology are also contributing to the growth of global hysterometer market. However, the lack of skilled personnel for the application and sterilization of hysterometers are hindering the growth of the global market.
