With age, healthcare workers statistically become more vulnerable to infections and musculoskeletal injuries. According to OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), approximately 34% of all injuries occurring in hospital workforce are related to patient interactions and patient handling; of these, back injuries are the most prevalent. The risk of back injuries increases during lateral transfer, as caregivers must reach over the stretcher to the bed and physically pull the patient across onto a stretcher. Thus, to prevent injuries among caregiver’s, lateral patient transfer device demand has increased over the years and this is expected to increase further.

Opportunities: Growing demand of home health care services;

Globally, an increasing number of government regulations are being implemented for reducing the duration and cost involved in healthcare treatments. For instance, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has implemented steps to provide incentives to healthcare providers for reducing hospitalization costs. Under this initiative, the CMS is promoting healthcare settings such as nursing homes and approaches such as home healthcare as they can provide quality care at reduced costs (as compared to the cost of hospitalization). Homecare settings are expected to account for 28.3% of the patient handling equipment market in the US. Owing to this, private nursing institutions and geriatric care homes have become highly viable end-user segments in the US. market. This will eventually increase opportunity for home healthcare services in patient lateral transfer market
