Acute Spinal Cord Injury Market was Valued at USD 5,121 million in 2018, at a CAGR of 4.1%

Spinal cord injuries are the most medically complex and associated with a high mortality rate. Many factors can cause these injuries such as accident, fall, violent incidence, and sudden shock or cut to spine, among others. Advancements in the technology for the diagnosis of acute spinal injuries is likely to support the market growth during the launch of new and effective products. For instance, the SCI Researcher at the Spinal Cord Injury Research Facility at Auckland University received a grant of USD 100,000 to discover the possibilities of healing paralysis. The therapy involves inserting genes into damaged spinal cord tissues for enabling motor neurons to regrow and restore function.

Increasing Applications of Robot-Assisted Rehabilitation Technology

Currently, robotics and different electrical stimulations are the most researched approaches for rehabilitation. These technologies are expected to play a key role in the future of SCI rehabilitation by enabling the patients to achieve maximum movements. Robotics has become valuable in the rehabilitation of spinal cord injury and many organizations offer these services with the objective to increase the mobility of patients. For instance, the UPMC Rehabilitation Institute’s Robotics and Gaming Center offers many technologies such as Lokomat and GameCycle.

Increasing Medical Tourism for Post Spinal Surgery Rehabilitation

After spine surgery, post-operative rehabilitation can cost a huge sum from patients. However, advancements in the healthcare infrastructure, introduction of low-cost procedures, and favorable government’s policies for affordable healthcare have facilitated growth in several developing countries. This, in turn, is flourishing the medical tourism in many Asian countries such as China, India, and Thailand, among others. According to the International Healthcare Research Center (IHRC), medical tourism is expected to grow by 14% annually in Thailand due to huge arrival of international tourists. Apart from this, countries like India are expected to witness huge growth in the coming years as result of strengthening healthcare infrastructure, availability of skilled healthcare professionals, and rising penetration insurance and awareness about health.
