Rise in number of people diagnosed with chronic conditions is boosting the demand for various home rehabilitation products and services
Rehabilitation programs are measures that help people suffering from disabilities by improving, maintaining, and restoring physical strength and mobility. Home rehabilitation products comprise positioning devices, body support devices, general aids, wheel chairs, and others (walkers, canes, crutches, arm and shoulder slings, etc.). Rise in the number of individuals with disabilities; and baby-boomer generation that is approaching the susceptible age for cardiovascular diseases, chronic conditions, and stroke are expected to augment the demand for physical therapists (PTs) and occupational therapists (OTs) and subsequently cardiac and physical rehabilitation equipment.

Asia Pacific to resister exponential growth and offer higher incremental opportunity
In terms of value, North America held large share of the global home rehabilitation products & services market in 2017. Factors attributed to the rapid growth of the home rehabilitation products and services market in Asia Pacific are rise in geriatric population; and increase in the prevalence of mobility related injuries, strokes, burn injuries, and neck and back pain in the region. Japan dominates the home rehabilitation products & services market in Asia Pacific. Asia Pacific is considered emerging market for home rehabilitation products and services due to the rise in demand for low-cost alternatives for home rehabilitation services in the region. Health care infrastructure is underdeveloped in some countries in Asia. In-hospital health care can be prohibitively expensive in Asia Pacific. Thus, large number of patients prefer to recover at home. There is also a significant increase in patients with chronic diseases that require long-term care. This, in turn, is fueling demand for in-home medical services. Rise in patient awareness about home care and expansion in the middle class population are drive the demand for home health care in Asia Pacific. These factors are expected to boost the home rehabilitation products & services market in the region. Aging population of Japan is also expected to be a major driver of the home rehabilitation products & services market in the country. According to an article published in Pacific Bridge Medical, Japan is one of the most rapidly aging countries in the world. It also stated that 36% of the population of Japan will be over the age of 60 by 2035.
