Electric-mechanical support by the standing wheelchair helps the user/ patient to move from a seated position to a stand position. The market has two types of standing wheelchair, namely the mechanical one which needs the patient's energy to push forth and back while walking, and the electric one which is an automated chair that allows the users to perform multiple tasks besides standing with support. Major end-users or patients having the following disorders opt for standing wheelchairs: multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, Lung disease, and other mobility-related ailments.This type of wheelchair supports the user with efficient blood circulation, improved breathing function, uniform pressure on the spine,enhanced bladder and bowel functioning, better bone density, reducing contractures&spasticity,and reduced bed sore issues.
The negative impact of seated wheelchairs is on the patient’s skin.Increasing geriatric patient population, high prevalence of multiple sclerosis and road accidents, rising demand for compact and user-friendly wheelchairs, the high purchasing power of patients from developed nations, increasing government spending on research activities for advanced and high-end electric wheelchairs, high incidence of spinal injuries and sports injuries, increasing patient hesitation due to pressure ulcers, ease in patient transfer, and rising patient-centric healthcare service will propel the market to grow.
Based on the propulsion, the market can be classified into a manual and electric standing wheelchair. However, based on the added advantages the electric function offers, the market for an electric standing wheelchair will be the largest from 2021 to 2026. Benefits such as high portability, ease in patient transport, added features in electric function, a wide range of control on patient movement via joysticks, and touchpads, outdoor-friendly mechanism, and high-end patient comfort will help the market grow faster than the manual one.
Based on the patient category, the market for a standing wheelchair can be segmented into adult wheelchairs and pediatricwheelchairs. Owing to a high prevalence of multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, lung disease amongst geriatric patients, the market for adult wheelchairs will be dominant until 2026. Also, with a high incidence of road accidents, spinal injuries, and sports injuries, the market is in favorof adult type standing wheelchair. It is also witnessed that, most spinal injuries occur due to road accidents. Thus increasing demand for comfort and a patient-centric wheelchair for road accident cases, the market for adult wheelchair type will be the fastest-growing too.
Based on the type of setting the market for standing wheelchair is classified into indoor and outdoor settings. Owing to the high portability of electric wheelchair, rising demand for an advanced technical wheelchair for patient transportation, the market for outdoor setting will be the largest and fastest-growing segment from 2021 to 2026.
As per the geographical analysis, the market report is classified into the U.S., Canada, and Mexico (North America), China, Japan, India, and RoAPAC (Asia Pacific), Germany, UK, France, Italy, Spain, RoE (Europe), Middle East & Africa and Central & South America. High awareness regarding patient-friendly and outdoor-based standing electric chairs, the flexible purchasing power of patients and government hospitals in developed countries, availability of subsidized rates of medical equipment for geriatric patients, will support the North American market to be dominant throughout the forecast period. On the other hand, rising incidence of orthopedic disorders, and increasing patient population, the Asia Pacific segment is set to grow the fastest in the market from 2021-2026.
