Global Mobile ECG Devices Market: Overview
Electrocardiogram (ECG) is the first test to be performed in case of cardiovascular problems or symptoms of problems of heart. It is a device used to measure heart activity. Conventional ECG devices are tedious and time consuming. Hence, portable mobile ECG devices are gaining popularity due to ease of use, convenience, and non-invasive method. Mobile ECG device is a wireless system with data transmission capabilities through Bluetooth and other advanced technologies. It can be connected to mobiles, tablets, and mobile applications which can send data to storage devices used for analysis by physicians and medical personnel. The device is easy to carry, lightweight, safe, and reliable source for diagnosis as well as monitoring of heart activities.
Global Mobile ECG Devices Market: Key Trends
Rise in the geriatric population and increase in incidence of cardiovascular diseases due to changing lifestyles are the major factors fueling the growth of the global mobile ECG devices market. According to the WHO, cardiovascular diseases account for 17.9 million, or 31%, of global deaths each year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking are the key risk factors for heart diseases, and around 47% people in the U.S. have at least one of these three risk factors. Increase in awareness about heart diseases, surge in health care expenditure, and inclination of people toward more sophisticated & advanced ECG devices due to less hospital stay and portability are also propelling the global mobile ECG devices market. However, unfavorable reimbursement policies and technical issues related with device & technology are the factors hampering the growth of the global mobile ECG devices market.
