Rehabilitation Robotics refers to automatic operation of a machine which is especially designed to overcome suffering from disorder associated to impairment of physical functioning. The aim of the robotic methods is further to aid an individual having a disability in movement. The key driver associated to the market. Moreover, the growing prevalence robotics in the clinics, hospitals and rehabilitation environments for facilitating the lengthy duration of training to patients with a better and safe environment thereby improvement in therapeutic result. Added to this, the continuous enhancement over the rehabilitation robots have been further inspired by scientific & technological advancement in functional recovery and plastic products.
Primarily there are only two types of rehabilitation robots. The first one being an assistive robot which substitutes the lost limb movements. The second one is called as therapy robot, which allows patients to perform and practice movements as aided by the robot.
According to report, “Asia-Pacific Rehabilitation Robotics Market 2018-2025 by Product Type (Exoskeletons, MPC Prosthetics, Assistive Robots), Application (Stroke, Orthopedics, Others), Body, Mobility and Country”. Some of the key companies operating in the Asia-Pacific rehabilitation robotics market are AlterG, Inc., Chas. A. Blatchford & Sons Ltd. (Endolite), Assistive Innovations Corp., Cyberdyne, Inc., Bionik Laboratories Corp., Freedom Innovations, LLC, BionX Medical Technologies, Inc., Instead Technologies Ltd., Ekso Bionics, Kinova Robotics, Focal Meditech, Otto Bock HealthCare GmbH, Hocoma, Rehab-Robotics Company Limited, Invacare Corporation, Parker Hannifin Corporation, Myomo, Teh Lin Prosthetic & Orthopaedic Inc., Ossur, Rex Bionics Plc., ReWalk Robotics Ltd., U.S. Bionics, Inc. (suitX), SynTouch LLC, Touch Bionics Inc. The rehabilitation robot market is a competitive and consists of several players. The market also witness attractiveness by many startups engaged closely with design and use of new robotic technologies for increase their market presence.
Based on type market is segmented as upper extremity rehabilitation robots, lower extremity rehabilitation robots, therapeutic rehabilitation robots, full-body exoskeletons based on applications sports and orthopedic medicine, neuro rehabilitation, military strength training, others, end user hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, others). Based on type upper extremity rehabilitation robots, lower extremity rehabilitation robots, therapeutic rehabilitation robots, full-body exoskeletons, Based on geography the Asia-Pacific rehabilitation robotics market is further driven by rise in prevalence of medical conditions associated to spinal cord injuries, stroke, Parkinson’s disease and cerebral palsy, Moreover the other factors driving the market include increase in aging population. However, high cost of the devices may further impact the market. The aging societies in the Asia-Pacific, economies such as Japan and China, where in the medical technology sector, created a huge market opportunity for the rehabilitation robots in the region. The disabilities like stroke may also lead to cause adult disabilities in country like China. This in turn, may result in rise in awareness concerned to robot-assisted treatments, driving the investments in this technology.Similarly, the other countries in the region further expected to adopt robotic devices to provide better treatment for the patients. They are using robotic devices that are attached to the patient to help them move their limbs in a natural manner.
It is estimated that future of Asia-Pacific rehabilitation robotics market is expected to be bright as a result of well-established robotic industry, rapid adoption of new technologies and robotic rehabilitation assistance over the forecast period.
