Markets for electrostimulation devices (neurostimulation, cardiac rhythm management, fracture healing and others)
Markets for Electrostimulation Devices (Neurostimulation, CardiacRhythm Management, Fracture Healing and Others)Electrical and magnetic stimulation is the primary focus of this Kalorama Information Report.Rather than attempting to define and classify all of the varying electro stimulatory methods, thisreport groups technologies into basic categories based on application and complexity.The audience for this report includes technical directors, business development managers,investors, and analyst’s who want a panoramic view, at a quantitative level, of the technologyand medical applications of electrical and magnetic stimulation. This is a far-reaching field, andthis report thus serves as a survey aimed at providing insight about the realm of marketpossibilities. Two general segments are discussed with various sub-segments included:External Electrical Stimulation Devices: Bone Growth Simulation Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) Ultrasound-Accelerated Fracture HealingImplanted Electrical Simulation Devices Bone Growth Stimulation Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Deep Brain Stimulation Gastric Electrical Stimulation Implantable Cardiac Pacemakers Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillators Sacral Nerve Stimulation Spinal Cord Stimulation Vagus Nerve StimulationCompanies involved in the market are profiled to provide an understanding of today’scompetitive environment and marketing strategies.Demand for both electrical and magnetic neurostimulation technologies is expected to growmoderately during the next few years.TENS is commonly used for pain management. Despite controversy over the degree to whichTENS is more effective than placebo in reducing pain, the market for TENS equipmentcontinues to remain steady. Electro muscular stimulation (EMS) of muscle tissue can aid in therecuperation of overworked muscles. Technological progress continues in EMS, especially withmicroprocessors that allow protection against the risk of burning and elimination of electrical
pain. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive technique that uses anelectromagnet placed on the patient’s scalp to alter brain activity. Repetitive TMS (rTMS),which uses varying frequencies and intensities of magnetic fields, seems to have therapeuticvalue. During the previous years, rTMS has received a growing attention in the popular andscientific media. The market forecasts reflect growing professional medical acceptance. Thedemand of electro stimulation products based on external electrodes is expected to benefit frominnovative developments in FES designed to augment movement of atrophied muscles, promotenew nerve function, and provide interfaces between nerve cells and computing devices. Themarket for treating depression is one of the most promising applications of neurotechnologydevices. The potential market opportunity is huge, with between over 20 million people in theU.S.alone who could potentially benefit.A new group of active electrodes are underdevelopment. These can connect nerve cells tomicrocircuits and provide aliving link between living tissues and hardware. Direct interfacesbetween small networks of nerve cells and micro devices are advancing the understanding ofnerves and leading the way to a new generation of hybrid devices that communicate betweencomputers and biological neural networks. There are several research teams in the U.S.andEurope that are currently working onso-called neural-silicon hybrid chips. Wireless technologycould lead to the replacement of leads with small radios that can transmit and receiveinformation and energy.Companies Profiled in this report include: Amrex Electrotherapy Equipment (Division of Amrex-Zetron) Biomet, Inc.
