Patient lift pendants are majorly used in intensive care unit (ICU) in hospitals, home care, and elderly care facilities. Increasing number of spinal cord injuries is expected to boost the growth of global patient lift pendant market. For instance, according to a Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) report of Spinal Cord injuries Australia, During 2017-18, 318 new cases of spinal cord injury (SCI) were reported to the Australian Spinal Cord Injury Register (ASCIR) with 131 of these resulting from non-traumatic causes such as vascular disorders, infectious conditions, spinal canal stenosis, disc herniation, myelopathy, and cancer. The total number of new cases incurring SCI from traumatic causes, and over the age of 15, was 187.

Global Patient Lift Pendant Market- Regional Analysis
On the basis of region, the global smart hospitals market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.
North America is expected to hold a dominant position in the global patient lift pendant market, owing to high number of overweight and obese adults.
For instance, in June 2019 according to a report published in Statistics Canada, in 2018, 26.8% of Canadians aged 18 and older (roughly 7.3 million adults) reported height and weight that classified them as obese. 9.9 million adults (36.3%) were classified as overweight. This led to 63.1% out of total population were in health risk due to excess weight. The proportion of adults who were overweight or obese was higher among males (69.4%) than among females (56.7%).

Patient lifts are designed to lift and transfer patients from one place to another (e.g., from bed to other rooms, chair to stretcher). These medical devices provide several benefits, including reduced risk of injury to patients and caregivers when properly used. Patient lifts can be operated using a power source or manually. The powered models generally require the use of a rechargeable battery and the manual models are operated using hydraulics. While the design of patient lifts will vary based on the manufacturer, basic components may include a mast (the vertical bar that fits into the base), a boom (a bar that extends over the patient), a spreader bar (which hangs from the boom), a sling (attached to the spreader bar, designed to hold the patient), and a number of clips or latches (which secure the sling). However, improper use of patient lifts can pose significant public health risks. Patient falls from these devices have resulted in severe patient injuries including head traumas, fractures, and deaths. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has compiled a list of practices that should be followed by users of patient lift:
Increasing number of product launches is expected to drive the global patient lift pendant market. For instance, in June 2017, Biodex Medical Systems, Inc., a manufacturer and distributor of physical rehabilitation, radiological and nuclear imaging equipment company, announced the launch of the Mobility Assist, the first motorized lift assist and ambulation aid in one device. This assistive aid lifts patients safely from a seated to a standing position without staff support using the protection of a safety harness and motorized lift mechanics.
However, growth of the global patient lift pendant market is expected to be hampered over the forecast period, owing to high cost of patient lift pendants. For instance, according to a report published in June 2015, an average cost permanent overhead lifts cost an average of US$ 16 thousand per room to install and can be used only in that one room.
