Electrotherapy Market Segment Insights

Electrotherapy Treatment Type Insights

The market segments of electrotherapy, based on treatment type, includes extracorporeal shock wave therapy, interferential current therapy, magnetic field therapy, ultrasound therapy, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy, micro-current therapy. The transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy segment held the majority share in 2022 contribution in respect to the market revenue of electrotherapy. This is primarily owing to the rising prevalence of pain injuries and the increasing number of road accidents across the globe. As per the article published in the prevalence of sports specialization among the young athletes in 2021 was 17% to 41% and the trend is rising globally. Rising sports activities and specialization can increase the risk of injuries related to sports. So electrotherapies such as transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is commonly used to recover arthritics conditions, neck and back pain, and deep and soft tissues injuries caused by sports, the sports related injuries are expected to rise the demand for TENS globally.

March 2022: In a recent study sponsored by universities acroos the United States and published by the Europeon Pain Federation, the OMRON FocusTM TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) Therapy for knee (PM-710) device was assessed for its favourable effectiveness in reducing pain for people with mild to moderate knee “wear and tear.” The researchers found that when used during functional tests, such as stair climbing and walking, the OMRAN Focus TENS Therapy for knee was effective in delivering noticeable pain relief.

Electrotherapy Device Type Insights

The Electrotherapy Market segmentation, based on device type, includes transcutaneous electrical neural stimulator (TENS) electronic muscle stimulator (EMS), interferential stimulator (IF), high voltage pulsed galvanic stimulator (HVPGS).
