Demand Analysis of Stroke Rehabilitation from 2012 to 2021 Vs Market Outlook for 2022 to 2032

The global market for stroke rehabilitation expanded at a high CAGR of 5.2% over the last ten years (2012-2021).

Stroke accounts for the second-highest cause of deaths worldwide, and the third leading cause of disability. According to a study published in NCBI (2019), certain medications and therapeutics have been discovered for the treatment of stroke, but treatment options for hemorrhagic stroke remain limited.

Consequently, the trend of researchers investigating and exploring the areas of post-stroke recovery and rehabilitation treatments has been observed. Therapies aimed at maximizing function in brain areas that survived the event of a stroke, or providing compensatory measures to increase overall function, are used to reach the unexplored goals of post-stroke recovery.

  • Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) rehabilitation devices undergoing clinical trial assessments: The pilot trial intends to see if the non-invasive brain stimulation device is promising and enables safe treatment in the age group of 15-90 years for post-stroke rehabilitation.

Use of technology in stroke rehabilitation has been a beneficial approach. Stimulation devices such as robotic stimulators, wireless stimulators, electrical stimulators, etc., can help provide scientific evidence of the utility of practices and computerized analysis of rehabilitation treatment.

Many medical device companies are coming up with innovative products to enhance their product portfolios, market outreach, and generate more revenue. Innovation in stroke rehabilitation devices also focuses on the post-stroke recovery of the patient.

  • BIONIK Laboratories Corp released the “InMotion ARM/HAND robotic system” in 2019, for stroke rehabilitation. The sophisticated InMotion ARM/HAND was created employing neuroplasticity concepts and motor learning, as well as data analysis and AI, to deliver patients with personalised therapy and reports.

The global stroke rehabilitation solutions market is predicted to surge ahead at a CAGR of 9% and record sales worth US$ 679.6 Mn by the end of 2032.

What Lucrative Opportunities are in Store for Stroke Rehabilitation Device Manufacturers?

“Rising Usage of Virtual Reality Applications and Tele Rehabilitation”

Virtual Reality (VR) has recently emerged as a novel stroke rehabilitation therapy solution. VR for stroke rehabilitation with commercial gaming consoles, in particular, is gaining traction within hospital settings. VR includes the treatment of stroke patients carried out in a computer-generated virtual environment, and the collected information is transferred to a specialist for further analysis.

According to a study conducted in Spain with 30 stroke patient respondents, for treatment with a VR rehabilitation program, respondents received 20-45 training sessions three times a week in their home or at the clinic. The study infers that VR-based rehabilitation programs increase locomotor abilities in the same way that in-clinic therapies do.

  • In July 2017, Saebo, Inc. received U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for SaeboVR, a virtual reality rehabilitation system developed for neurological patients that face both, cognitive and physical challenges.

Over the last ten years, virtual reality has gained popularity as a new therapeutic option in stroke rehabilitation. This method allows patients to engage in activities that are not possible to do in a physical environment. Furthermore, there are a few other aspects of VR that could engage patients and increase treatment compliance.

Delivery of rehabilitation services using telecommunication networks and the Internet is known as telerehabilitation. Rehabilitation therapy can be carried out without the need for face-to-face interaction between the specialist and the patient. The advent of COVID-19 created a lot of opportunities for telerehabilitation treatment for post-stroke patients.

  • According to an article published on PubMed, four observational studies were carried out on telerehabilitation. At-home telerehabilitation interventions improved the health of stroke patients while also providing support to caretakers. The satisfaction and acceptance of telerehabilitation therapies were high among health professionals and participants.

Although a majority of trials yielded positive effects, the overall quality of evidence on telerehabilitation in post-stroke therapy was moderate. This creates huge opportunities for stroke rehabilitation service providers.

What Impeding Factors are Affecting Demand for Stroke Rehabilitation?

“Low Focus on Technology-based Rehabilitation & Dearth of Skilled Professionals”

For post-stroke patients to acquire full functional independence while lowering or preventing impairments, rehabilitation is important. In terms of patient function, technological solutions produced to date have primarily focused on physical recovery, since mobility is a key factor in the independence and confidence of impaired patients.

VR-based technology can reduce care cost by replacing hospital-based care with home-based care; however, development of such systems is yet to emerge. This can have a negative impact on the overall growth of the stroke rehabilitation market.

For post-stroke rehabilitation, there is a requisite of skilled specialists such as speech and language pathologists, neurologists, psychologists, physical and occupational therapists, social workers, physiatrists, recreational therapists, rehabilitation nurses, etc. Dearth of skilled professionals in these areas can lower the quality of services offered, ultimately affecting demand growth of stroke rehabilitation.
