Demand for Home Care Products in US Goes Up, According to Kalorama Information

11 May 2012 • by Natalie Aster

Home medical equipment such as mobility aids and bathroom safety supplies, for example, addresses the needs of individuals requiring assistance with activities of daily living. For administering certain drugs, particularly anti-infectives and nutritional products, infusion therapy allows individuals to receive care in their own homes, for greater quality of life as well as considerably lower expense than inpatient treatment. Oxygen therapy equipment assists individuals with breathing difficulties resulting from severe lung diseases. Defibrillators may be used on an emergency basis to re-start the hearts of patients with cardiovascular impairments. Miscellaneous medical equipment may be used to manage chronic conditions including incontinence and stomas, while general supplies support other home care segments.

Growth in the ambulatory aids market continues to be driven by several key trends including the aging U.S. population, new product introductions and relatively generous government reimbursement programs, despite recent modifications.
