Low Intensity Ultrasound Treatment Being Referred as Therapy for COVID-19 Pneumonia

Therapeutic ultrasound is being linked to the treatment of COVID-19 pneumonia. Giovanni Durando, a technologist from the National Institute for Metrological Research (INRIM) has been working closely with neurosurgeon Francesco Prada from the Istituto Neurologico Carlo Besta to gain findings about low intensity ultrasound treatment for COVID-19 pneumonia. Such research studies are translating into revenue opportunities for companies in the ultrasound devices market now and in the future.

The low intensity ultrasound treatment is being referred as therapy for interstitial pneumonia, which is found to be affecting some of the patients who have tested positive for coronavirus. This has led to the popularity of low intensity ultrasound treatment of pulmonary pathology. Stakeholders in the ultrasound devices market are taking advantage of this opportunity to gain a strong research base for ultrasound therapy in order to treat inflamed lung tissues, which become fibrotic due to interstitial pneumonia that affects patients.

App-based Handheld Ultrasound Gains Popularity as Life-saving Technology in Remote Villages

The innovative app-based handheld ultrasound technology is empowering healthcare professionals to gain diagnostic insight for point-of-care (POC) treatment and is gaining prominence in the emergency department (E.D). The Philips Lumify, a one-of-its-kind app-based handheld ultrasound is gaining popularity for the 2020 IEEE Spectrum Technology in the Service of Society Award, since the technology is benefitting E.D. in hospitals of remote villages. This explains why the ultrasound devices market is estimated to advance at a healthy CAGR of ~6% during the assessment period.

The app-based handheld ultrasound technology holds promising potentials to transform healthcare by generating diagnostic images with the help of an ultrasound transducer that is connected to a smartphone or a tablet.

FDA Clearance for Two-sided Probe Design in Handheld Devices Creates Revenue Opportunities

Although trolley or cart-based ultrasound devices are likely to dominate a high revenue share, the demand for compact or handheld ultrasound devices in the ultrasound devices market is projected to grow at an exponential rate during the forecast period. This is evident since GE Healthcare - a subsidiary of U.S. multinational conglomerate General Electric, has announced its first wireless portable ultrasound device Vscan Air, which is intended for use in diagnostic ultrasound imaging and fluid flow analysis.

In order to bolster their credibility credentials, med-tech companies in the ultrasound devices market are increasing their R&D muscle to gain FDA clearance for handheld devices. They are increasing efforts to develop battery-powered handheld ultrasound devices with two-sided probe design for quick swapping between shallow and deep exams.

Ultrasound Debridement Technology Exhibits Potential to Reduce Morbidity Rate Due to Chronic Wounds

Ultrasound devices have the potential to treat chronic wounds. Significant innovations in wound care are contributing to the growth of the ultrasound devices market, as companies are collaborating with researchers to innovate in the ultrasound debridement technology. This has led to advancements in non-contact low-frequency (NCLF) ultrasound, which demonstrates the potential of ultrasound debridement to effectively remove devitalized tissue, alleviate pain, and control bio-burden caused by chronic wounds.

Since chronic wounds lead to considerable morbidity and utilize significant healthcare resources, manufacturers in the ultrasound devices market are increasing the availability for ultrasound debridement technology, which is effective for expediting the healing process of wounds.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

POC ultrasound has acquired importance in the toolkit of clinicians to facilitate fast assessment of pulmonary symptoms of the disease, while minimizing the spread of the novel coronavirus. The app-based handheld ultrasound technology is gaining popularity in rural community settings to increase access to real-time clinical information. However, lack of regulatory tools for manufacturers to provide appropriate thermal safety data has limited the progress of the ultrasound devices market. Hence, manufacturers in the ultrasound devices market are gaining knowledge about FDA’s Therapeutic Ultrasound Program Activities that help to establish standards and guidance for thermal safety of therapeutic ultrasound devices. Manufacturers are increasing the availability for dual-headed probe design in wireless and portable ultrasound devices to help users quickly store and share auto-anonymized images.
