Baropodometry platform or baropodometer is a device which is used to measure the load distribution on feet while walking and resting. The foot acts as main support for walking and load transfer during walking. Baropodometry platform is an important tool used to study the distribution of the plantar pressure. The tool uses a software to produce images like a podoscope and provide information such as load distribution, plantar pressure, and abnormalities of pelvis, spine, and foot.
The global baropodometry platforms market is expect to expand at a constant CAGR during the forecast period. High prevalence of obesity increases the pressure of feet. This is an important factor driving the baropodometry market. According to the World Health Organization, the number of people with obesity has tripled since 1975. In 2016, 650 million adults over age of 18 were obese. Surge in obese population can be attributed to unhealthy lifestyle. Rise in musculoskeletal injuries due to sedentary lifestyle and recreational activities and increase in accidents are few factors boosting the global market during the forecast period. Another important factor causing biomechanical dysfunction is the ‘tech neck’, which is pain and injury caused due to the use of wireless devices. This is expected to boost the global baropodometry market during the forecast period. Factors such as requirement of improved calibration systems and lack of awareness about biomechanical dysfunction are expected to restrain the global market.
The global baropodometry platforms market can be segmented based on modality, patient type, end-user and region. In terms of the modality, the global baropodometry platforms market can be classified into portable platforms and fixed platforms. The portable platforms segment is expected to hold a significant share of the market due to feasibility of the device. Based on type, the global market can be bifurcated into veterinary and human. In terms of end-user, the baropodometry platforms market can be segregated into physiotherapy clinics, hospitals, and others.
In terms of region, the global baropodometry platforms market can be segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to hold a dominant share of the global baropodometry platforms market. Increase in prevalence of obesity and rise in biomechanical dysfunction due to technologically advanced infrastructure are some factors propelling the baropodometry platforms market in North America. Furthermore, rise in awareness among people toward the benefits of baropodometry, rise in per capita health care expenditure, and early adoption of advanced technology are some factors driving the baropodometry platforms market in North America. The market in Europe is also anticipated to hold a considerable share of the global baropodometry platforms market due to the increase in geriatric population. The market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to expand at a considerable pace during the forecast period. Asia Pacific is a highly lucrative baropodometry platforms market due to factors such as rise in geriatric population, increase in the number of accidents, surge in biomechanical dysfunction caused due to technology, and sedentary lifestyle. Furthermore, increase in awareness regarding new technology, rise in recreational activities are some factors driving the baropodometry platforms market in Asia Pacific.
Key players operating in the global baropodometry platforms market engage in strategies such as mergers and acquisitions, product improvements, development of cost-effective products, collaborations, and partnerships. Some of the key players operating in the global baropodometry platforms market include Biodex, BTS Bioengineering, Sani Corporate, and Bauerfeind USA Inc.
