Functional Electrical Stimulation Market: Overview

Functional electrical stimulation is a medical technique used for patients who have suffered from paralysis to regain mobility. The technique involves applying small electric charges to the patient's muscles to contract them in a way that can aid in performing functions like standing, walking, holding a toothbrush, grasping a key, etc.

Functional electrical stimulation was initially deemed as an assistive device but with intensive research and clinical trials, currently, the technique has gained high therapeutic importance with multiple clinicians using it for patients who have suffered from paralyzed body parts and to help them with regaining movement capabilities. Two of the major reasons for paralysis involve a stroke or a spinal cord injury.

A stroke refers to the death of brain tissue owing to a disruption in blood supply. 87% of strokes are ischemic strokes which means they occur because of a ruptured blood cell. Spinal cord injury occurs when there is damage due to the cord resulting in loss of motor or sensory function. Suffering from mobility loss can lead to deterioration of well-being and hence many patients try different measures to regain movement strength with functional electrical stimulation being a preferred choice. FES can be used to restore mobility pertaining to muscle movement, and bladder & bowel control. The technique has been extremely helpful in other areas like treating pressure sores or ulcers, restoring breathing, and reducing pain by blocking pain-related signals to the brain.

Covid-19 Impact:

The global market cap witnessed significant growth because of the onset of Covid-19. The reasons can be attributed to the rise in the number of Covid-19 related strokes resulting in paralysis. The Covid-19 virus was extremely unpredictable and had different impacts on different individuals, and in many cases left long-term after-effects resulting in a growth in the number of patients who had to receive medical treatments for other medical conditions like limb mobility as a consequence of Covid-19 infection.

As per official research reports, the virus was responsible for increasing the risk of ischemic stroke. Out of 8163 patients that were studied to understand the correlation between the virus and stroke, around 103 patients developed ischemic stroke although the chances of suffering from stroke were higher in case of the presence of other cardiovascular diseases.

Functional Electrical Stimulation Market: Growth Drivers

Rising central nervous system disorders to propel market growth

The global functional electrical stimulation market cap is anticipated to be driven by the rise in CNS disorders that impact the structure of functions of the spinal cord or the brain. In the majority of CNS cases, the patients are known to suffer from either partial or full paralysis, especially if the spinal cord is greatly damaged. CNS may occur due to a majority of reasons including but not limited to trauma, degeneration, CNS tumors, stroke, autoimmune diseases, structural defects, and others.

The growing trend of the rise in other musculoskeletal disorders may also aid global market growth. MSD refers to injuries related to nerves, muscles, joints, tendons, spinal discs, and cartilage. The three most common forms of MSD are arthritis, back pain, and trauma. Such disorders if left untreated may lead to the patient losing the natural mobility of body parts thus propelling the use and demand of functional electrical stimulation.

As per National Center for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), 6 out of 10 men, and 5 out of every 10 women suffer from some form of trauma once in their lifetime. In case, the trauma is relatively more severe and leaves a long-lasting impact, the brain function may get disrupted resulting in loss of movement of certain body parts. The changes in medical personnel recommending FES as a part of the treatment plan are extremely high given the positive results experienced by many patients from FES treatments.

Functional Electrical Stimulation Market: Restraints

Risks associated with FES to restrict market cap expansion

Since FES deals with a low voltage of electric current, electrodes form an essential part of the treatment procedure as they are placed on the skin to pass the controlled electric current. Even though the process is non-invasive and is not dangerous when used by experienced professionals, there are some risks associated with the treatment pertaining to the position of the electrodes that are placed under the skin or in deep tissue. These risks involve infection at the electrode position, broken wires, formation of scar tissue, etc. However, in the case of electrodes that are placed externally have not been reported to show any side effects.

Functional Electrical Stimulation Market: Opportunities

Growing research in FES to provide market expansion opportunities

Functional electrical stimulations have been in existence since the 1960s. With every passing year, more research was conducted to understand and upgrade the process of FES looking at its high potential. As of 2022, a large number of private companies and government entities are investing in the field of functional electrical stimulation to enhance its applications and make it affordable for low-income groups as well thus improving patient reach. Such factors are anticipated to provide lucrative growth opportunities for global functional electrical stimulation market growth.

Functional Electrical Stimulation Market: Challenges

High cost of FES treatment to challenge the market expansion

Since FES systems may range anything from USD 4000 to USD 14000, the final cost of the treatment is generally high, especially in developing countries with lower-income populations. The medical treatment cost depends on the device that is used on the patients and the length of the treatment prohibiting a higher adoption rate. The high variation in treatment costs may inhibit global market expansion unless the healthcare sector works towards standardizing treatment expenses for the general population.
