Patient Lifts Market Predicted to Grow at a Moderate Pace Through 2018 – 2026

Patient lifts are assistive devices designed to lift and transfer patients from one place to another (for example, chair to stretcher, or bed to bath). These are an integral part of hospitals, nursing, and home care settings. These are different from stairway chair lifts or elevators. The two types of patient lifts used commonly are manual and power lifts. Manual patient lifts are operated using hydraulics. Power lifts are operated by rechargeable batteries. Patient lifts offer advantages such as prevention of risk of musculoskeletal injuries while transferring from one place to other. Moreover, it is convenient for caregivers and hospital staff to handle patient with care. Power lifts enable caregivers to focus on the patient and not the lifter. Power lifts are ideal for transferring patients from bed to chair and vice versa, and for bathing, toileting, and showering.

Safe patient handling is a major concern among people living in Europe, the U.S., and countries in the developing regions. Hence, increase in demand for patient lift technologies is likely to make the patient lifts market highly lucrative for investment. Moreover, rise in the global geriatric & disabled populations, grants from governments & international organizations, technological advancements, rise in hospitalization rate due to increase in incidence of chronic diseases, and surge in adoption of minimally invasive surgeries are likely to boost demand for patient lifts during the forecast period. However, high cost of the products and lack of awareness and training to caregivers about the available advanced products are projected to restrain the global patient lifts market.

The global patient lifts market can be segmented based on product type, application, end-user, and region. In terms of product type, the patient lifts market can be bifurcated into electric lifts and hydraulic lifts. Electric lifts is projected to be a lucrative segment during the forecast period, as these lifts offer advantages such as convenience to caregivers, smooth transfer of patients without injury, and ease of transition. Manual lift is used to transfer a patient from one room to another. Manual lift is a better option in areas with limited power supply. Cost effectiveness makes the segment attractive in regions with limited spending capacity. Moreover, manual lifts are most commonly used in home care settings owing to insurance reimbursements and physician recommendations. Based on application, the global patient lifts market can be classified into heavy duty lifts, stand up lifts, lifts for scooters, lifts for wheelchairs, lift slings, and personal mobility lifts. In terms of end-user, the patient lifts market can be divided into hospitals, clinics, ambulatory surgery centers, home care settings, and others.
