Assistive devices are devices used by disabled individuals for maintaining their everyday activity. These devices assist users to overcome limitations on their ability to function in the workplace, home or other non-institutional settings caused by their existing physiological or mental conditions. Disabled or handicapped people need these devices to perform their daily activities and to be more productive in their everyday life. These devices have special features that fulfill the needs of the user by making their use comfortable.

These devices include:

  • Hearing aids.
  • Computer assistive devices.
  • Wheelchairs.
  • Crutches.
  • Walkers.
  • Canes.
  • Orthotic devices.
  • Prosthetic devices.
  • Smart scooters.
  • Sensory impairment devices.
  • Lift vests.
  • Voice recognition devices.
  • Screen enlargers.
  • Screen readers.

The rise in incidence of orthopedic injuries, increase in the geriatric population, increase in incidence of obesity and the rise in road accidents are the driving factors for the growth of the assistive devices market. In addition, the rise in awareness regarding availability of various types of technologicallyadvanced orthopedic devices provide lucrative growth opportunities to the market.

Key Findings:

Based on device type, sensory impairment devices captured the largest share of the market in 2017 and are expected to lead the market during the forecast period, given the high prevalence of sensory disabilities among individuals and hence the high usage of sensory-impairment devices.

North America generated the highest market share in 2017 due to high technological advancements. Europe is expected to be the second-leading region in the assistive devices market.
