Homecare Medical Equipment Market Examined in New WinterGreen Report Recently Published at MarketPublishers.com

17 Feb 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The market for homecare medical equipment is expected to witness growth on a continuous basis as the ageing population needs homecare treatment. Homecare medical equipment, comprising mainly wheelchairs, oxygen treatment equipment, scooters, accessibility beds, toilets and lifts, has been sold chiefly through distributers until more recent times. The influence of direct sales via the Internet has given rise to some consolidation of the distribution market, resulting in a drop in the number of distributers for homecare equipment.

As the population ages, people are more feeble and in need of assistance for mobility. Wheelchair technology is developing to offer more mobility to people with disabilities. Mobility depends upon wheelchairs that are fit to purpose, with manual and power wheelchairs being bought according to the customers’ needs. Medical scooters are a booming segment of mobility for the ageing population due to their improved performance outdoors. A slew of issues affect the choice of a wheelchair, comprising price and reimbursement availability.

Demand for homecare equipment is also being driven by high incidence rates of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other respiratory tract diseases where oxygen can enhance the quality of the life dramatically. Having become more affordable, portable devices support a mobile lifestyle even whilst on oxygen.

Homes are also required to be outfit to meet the needs of the ageing population, where lifts, beds, and specialty toilets are the major equipment in the home. The equipment distributors work with each customer to fit the home and car with the necessary equipment to provide mobility individualised for each specific case.
