Prevention Strategies Gain Importance During Coronavirus Pandemic

Given the importance of pressure ulcer (PU) prevention in patients during the coronavirus pandemic, stakeholders in the pressure ulcer diagnostics market are gaining awareness about focused prevention strategies involving skin assessment and care. In order to achieve this, stakeholders and healthcare providers are increasing the availability of diagnostic tests such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scan, among others.

Since stakeholders in the pressure ulcer diagnostics market are under scrutiny similar to the entire healthcare sector, stakeholders are encouraging healthcare providers to adopt prevention strategies including offloading and pressure redistribution to improve the patient quality of life. Healthcare providers are maintaining sufficient inventories for dressing and other therapeutics to reduce the incidence and prevalence of largely preventable wounds.

Progression of BP May Lead to Challenges in Accurate Diagnosis

The pressure ulcer diagnostics market is projected to cross US$ 1.49 Bn by 2031. Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is a severe skin disorder with high morbidity and mortality rates. However, as the condition progresses, rendering an accurate diagnosis may be a challenge for clinicians. Hence, practitioners are arriving at a diagnosis of BP by evaluating the clinical manifestations of the disorder and by obtaining a detailed patient history.

In order to improve patient outcomes, healthcare providers are conducting clinical evaluation of a pressure ulcer based on quantitative and qualitative evaluation. The acetate tracing is emerging as the gold standard for measuring wound surface area.

mHealth Apps Proving Advantageous in Digital Wound Measurement

Mobile health (mHealth) apps are being publicized as a new business model in the pressure ulcer diagnostics market. Since acetate tracing is associated with difficulties in material availability, data storage issues, and the time needed to calculate the surface area, stakeholders and startups are bullish on expanding their medical services through mHealth apps.

mHealth apps are storming the pressure ulcer diagnostics market. These apps help use planimetry techniques that are a promising alternative to traditional wound assessment methods. Thus, to maximize the use of mHealth apps, market stakeholders must increase R&D to conduct studies on larger and more diverse wounds. The imitoMeasure is gaining popularity for digital wound measurement.

Treatment of Underlying Diseases Helps Improve Patient Outcomes

Despite awareness about the issues associated with pressure ulcers, the rates of pressure wounds remain high in long-term care facilities and nursing homes, where there is a lack of staff and optimal care is not always possible. In order to prevent decubitus ulcers, healthcare providers are creating awareness about the proper placement of patients in bed and treatment of underlying diseases.

CT is the modality of choice for assessment of bone involvement in pressure ulcers. Companies in the pressure ulcer diagnostics market are increasing their focus in CT fistulography with contrast introduction in the fistula in order to show contrast diffusion in the fistulous tract, thus allowing the evaluation of necrosis extension to the joints or bone surface.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Besides advanced services through MRI and CT, healthcare providers should maintain inventories for pH-balanced cleansers, dressings such as hydrocolloids, and positioning devices to improve the patient quality of life amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Pain and discomfort are being controlled with the help of analgesics. Although acetate tracing is the standard technique used to measure wound surface, using it in daily practice is linked with challenges in data storage issues, material availability, and the time needed to calculate the surface area. Hence, companies in the pressure ulcer diagnostics market should unlock value-grab opportunities in mHealth apps that help in implementing planimetry techniques.

Pressure Ulcer Diagnostics Market: Overview

  • The global pressure ulcer diagnostics market was valued at US$ 880.50 Mn in 2020 and is projected to expand at a moderate CAGR from 2021 to 2031
  • Launch of innovative pressure ulcer diagnostic products, presence of key players, rise in awareness about pressure ulcer diagnostic tools & tests, and surge in COVID-19 patients suffering from pressure ulcers & other chronic diseases are anticipated to boost the growth of the global pressure ulcer diagnostics market during the forecast period
  • Pressure ulcer, also known as bed sore, pressure sore, or decubitus ulcer, is skin and tissue injury resulting from the pressure on the skin for prolonged time. Pressure ulcers are located on the skin covering heels, ankles, hips, tailbone, and other bony areas. Bedsores are likely to develop within hours or days, which should be treated at the earliest. Few bedsores take time to heal, and therefore require prevention. The different types of pressure ulcers are stage 1, stage 2, stage 3, and stage 4. Healing takes time if the wound has progressed to final stage. Hence, various diagnostic tools are available for the early detection of pressure ulcers.
  • Rise in number of patients suffering from pressure ulcers and increase in admission of patients in ICU settings, nursing homes, and long-term care settings amid the COVID-19 pandemic are anticipated to fuel the growth of the global pressure ulcer diagnostics market

Pressure Ulcer Diagnostics Market: Segmentation

  • The global pressure ulcer diagnostics market has been segmented based on diagnostic test, wound, end-user, and region
  • In terms of diagnostic test, the global pressure ulcer diagnostics market has been classified into imaging techniques, microbiological tests, and others. The imaging technique segment has been segregated into magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) scan, fluorescence imaging, ultrasound imaging, and others. The imaging technique segment accounted for major market share in 2020, as MRI systems are widely considered technology for diagnosis of pressure ulcer and adoption of standard imaging methods such as computed tomography, fluorescence imaging, and other advanced technology for early diagnosis of pressure ulcers.
  • Based on wound, the global pressure ulcer diagnostics market has been bifurcated into stage 1, stage 2, stage 3, and stage 4. The stage 1 segment held the largest market share in 2020, owing to higher prevalence of stage 1 pressure ulcer in ICU admitted and elderly patients. Moreover, increase in admissions of critical patients in hospital intensive care units is expected to propel the segment during the forecast period.
  • In terms of end-user, the global pressure ulcer diagnostics market has been divided into hospitals, homecare settings, nursing homes, and others. The hospitals segment accounted for the largest market share in 2020, ascribed to surge in prevalence of pressure ulcers among patients in ICU. According to research, the prevalence of hospital-acquired pressure injuries is expected to be 8.5% in adult patients.
