Tampa, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/16/2017 -- A recent market research report forecasts robust growth in demand for compression therapy medical equipment.
The continuing market growth for compression therapy will come as the result of a similar increase in the pace of surgeries, market researchers found. The prediction comes as no surprise to Greg Grambor. As president of Vascular PRN, a leading distributor of pneumatic compression therapy devices, he sees demand for the technology rising steadily.
"As the rate of surgeries picks up, many of those procedures are very well-suited to compression therapy," Grambor said. "More doctors, hospitals, and nursing homes are discovering the benefits of compression therapy every day. They can see for themselves the cost savings, the excellent patient compliance and the post-surgical recovery."
The report, titled "Global Compression Therapy Market 2017-2021," finds a recent uptrend in compression therapy following surgery for the prevention of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). The devices are also used during lengthy laparoscopic surgery in order to prevent venous blood return.
Researchers also noted that pneumatic sequential compression therapy generates rapid results in just one to two hours per day, while static compression therapy can take up to 48 hours to show a similar result.
Some of the highest growth rates in compression therapy are forecast for the Eastern Hemisphere. Researchers predict robust demand in the Asia-Pacific market due to high inclination toward medical innovation as well as a rise in chronic ailments in the region.
"A move away from dangerous blood thinners and toward non-invasive compression therapy is to be expected in high-growth, innovative markets," Grambor added.
