Medical Dynamometers are devices that measure the strength of different muscle groups along with bones and neurons. It is a medical device that is used for measuring patient’s hand strength to evaluate the patient trauma or hand dysfunction as well as to determine how a patient is responding for ongoing treatment and therapy. These devices are utilized for clinical decision making and outcome evaluation of pathologies such as tendon injury of the hand, carpal tunnel syndrome, neuromuscular disorder, and nerve injury. Various types of medical dynamometers are used such as hand dynamometers, wrist dynamometer, pinch dynamometer and inclinometers. These devices are used to test the muscle strength of hand, grip strength, pinch strength, and also measure the range of motion. Medical dynamometer is an alternative to physiotherapy treatment for those suffering from various joint, muscle, and tendon disorders. These devices are efficient in rapid pain management and mobility restoration.    

Global Medical Dynamometer Market - Drivers

Increasing prevalence of orthopedic surgeries, increase in arthritic patients, rise in ergonomic health approaches, surge in research and development initiatives, and increase in demand for diagnostic devices drive the global medical dynamometer market growth. According to the National Inpatient Sample, in 2014, there were 370,770 total hip replacements (THR) and 680,150 total knee replacements (TKR) in the U.S. According to American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, by 2030, primary THR is projected to grow 171% and primary TKR is projected to grow by up to 189%, for a projected 635,000 and 1.28 million procedures, respectively.

Moreover, rise in prevalence of bone injuries drive growth of the global medical dynamometer market. According to International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), 2017, osteoporosis causes over 8.9 million fractures across the world each year, with an osteoporotic fracture every 3 seconds. IOF further states that by 2050, the global incidence of hip fracture in men is projected to increase by 310% and 240% in women. Furthermore, increase in sports injuries also fuel the global medical dynamometer market. For instance, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, high school athletes alone account for 2 million injuries, 50,000 doctor visits, and 30,000 hospitalizations in the U.S. each year.

Moreover, manufacturers and researchers are developing advanced systems for rehabilitation of post stroke patients left with upper-extremity hemiparesis. For instance, in July 2016, Biodex Medical Systems, Inc., a provider of innovative medical devices, announced the availability of upper extremity hemiparetic attachments for its multi joint system computerized robotic dynamometer. Furthermore, in January 2019, ActivBody introduced the Activforce, a digital dynamometer platform designed to increase clinician’s access to precise data, creating a more efficient experience with manual muscle testing.  

However, high costs associated with the medical dynamometer is restraining the market growth.
