COVID-19 Impact:

The introduction of advanced technology in the manufacture of adaptive equipment for the elderly and handicapped during the pandemic was seen to drive the global elderly and disabled assistive technology market. Automated assistive devices are beneficial to geriatrics because they eliminate manual work. Because of the increase in federal assistance in the form of financial support for the buying of mobility equipment, the healthcare mobility aids and portable devices sector is expected to develop at a fast rate. The governments of the United Kingdom, Switzerland, and the United States subsidies the purchase of assistive equipment for handicapped individuals, whilst the Canadian government allows impaired persons to pay little or no tax. 

Disabled and Elderly Assistive Technology Market: Growth Drivers

Evolution of assistive technologies and increases awareness to drive market growth

The rising awareness among the general public about the benefits that these products offer such as improved safety, increased independence, and more comfortable life is a growth factor for this market. The availability of various types of assistive devices in different applications (hospitals, nursing homes) has also led to increasing demand for these products globally which will be another positive driving force over the forecast period.
