What is the place of rehabilitation equipment in medical devices
Rehab is an industry at the bottom of the medical chain, so even workers in the medical industry don’t know about it. Very few people know that rehabilitation medicine is also one of the four types of medicine, and the other three types are preventive medicine, healthcare medicine, and clinical medicine. In 1969, the World Health Organization first defined rehabilitative medicine, which consists of eliminating or reducing the functional disability of patients and helping patients to return to work or functional ability and to reintegrate the society.
Among these four types of medicine, rehabilitation medicine succeeds clinical medicine, which means that rehabilitation medical equipment is widely applied to post-clinical interventions for patients suffering from post-stroke rehabilitation (neurological damage and hemiplegia resulting from blockage or cerebral vascular rupture), post-operative orthopedic rehabilitation (limb damage and movement disorders due to various causes), neurological diseases (autism, cerebral palsy and peripheral neurological damage), post-operative oncology, cardio diseases -pulmonary, chronic pain and sports injuries, etc. brought back to life” by clinical medicine, all of these patients live uncomfortable lives. Therefore, they need medical rehabilitation equipment.
However, most ordinary people don’t think that way and call rehabilitation a process that helps patients recover. They usually say “rest well and get well soon” when visiting patients in the hospital. Moreover, many medical reports believe that patients recover when the disease is cured. But it is obvious that rehabilitation medicine intervenes only after the cure of the disease (the patients have been saved).
The rehabilitation system is a kind of equipment that helps patients with passive movements and daily activities and promotes recovery
In the Chinese blue book on medical devices published by the National Institute of Medical Devices, medical devices are divided into four major categories according to product characteristics, including medical equipment, in vitro diagnostics, high-value consumables and low value consumables. Several subcategories are contained within each category. Rehabilitation equipment belongs to medical equipment, but its representative products listed are sports rehabilitation, postpartum rehabilitation, postoperative rehabilitation and neurological rehabilitation. China began to include medical rehabilitation equipment in the health insurance reimbursement system in 2011. In just a few years, a large number of international advanced medical rehabilitation equipment has been introduced in China, as well as technologies advanced rehabilitation medicine, directly improving China’s treatment capacity. rehabilitation equipment. Previously applied to pediatric cerebral palsy, stroke hemiplegia, spinal cord paraplegia and amputation, rehabilitation technologies have gradually expanded to pain rehabilitation, neurological rehabilitation, rehabilitation orthopedic, Chinese medicine rehabilitation, postpartum rehabilitation, accelerated rehabilitation surgery, cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, geriatric rehabilitation, chronic disease rehabilitation, disability rehabilitation, critical illness rehabilitation, pediatric rehabilitation, rehabilitation of burn injuries, stroke rehabilitation, spinal cord injury rehabilitation and sports injury rehabilitation, etc. Changzhou Kondak Medical Rehabilitation Equipment Co., Ltd., a leading rehabilitation equipment manufacturer in China, has formed a rich product structure with 16 series of products after years of development.
Materials and characteristics of rehabilitation equipment
Rehabilitation equipment and supplies are cross technical products and involve biomedical, mechanical, electronic, computer, new materials and other technical fields. With the continuous development of science and technology, rehabilitation equipment will become informative, intelligent, family-oriented and individualized. 1. Informed. The smart rehabilitation equipment industry, which applies Internet of Things (IoT) technology to rehabilitation equipment, will become one of the most important industries in the future. Intelligent rehabilitation creates a regional information platform for rehabilitation records, and uses IoT technology and cloud computing technology to realize interactions between functionally disabled people and rehabilitation equipment and rehabilitation institutions medical, thus gradually making the services of the rehabilitation system computerized. With the increasing popularization of smartphones, IoT technology also shows a trend of integrating smartphones to realize intelligent remote rehabilitation, such as home security monitoring and early warning for the elderly, as well as the distance treatment and rehabilitation training. 2. Smart. Since rehabilitation devices are mainly used for patients with functional impairment, the automation of devices and the intelligence of human-computer interaction with patients are of great importance for the use of rehabilitation devices. re-education. As computer technologies and artificial intelligence technologies advance, especially international advanced clinical research on brain-computer interface, medical rehabilitation equipment has become more automated and intelligent. 3. Family-oriented: With the continuous improvement of living standards and health awareness, people pay more attention to self-diagnosis, self-treatment and self-care, and people use an increasing number of simple and easy-to-use tools. use rehabilitation and home health care devices. Rehabilitation equipment manufacturers are also seeing increasing business opportunities in the home rehabilitation equipment market due to the aging population. At the same time, the development of home rehabilitation devices echoes the “prevention-oriented” principle advocated by the development of rehabilitation medicine. 4. Individual. Rehabilitation is essentially an individualized service that must meet the different needs of people with functional disabilities due to differences in degree of functional impairment, age and body size. Customized medical devices and services for different people with disabilities will become crucial to improving the quality of rehabilitation, while posing challenges and opportunities for rehabilitation equipment manufacturers.
China Rehabilitation Equipment Market Bottlenecks
The medical rehabilitation equipment industry started late in China, and is an emerging medical field in recent years, with a wide range of products, a large number of manufacturers, and low market concentration. In terms of competition, high-end rehabilitation equipment is mainly monopolized by foreign countries, with imported products dominating the market, and domestic rehabilitation equipment products are mainly imitations. Major Chinese manufacturers mainly include Xiangyu Medical, Lifotronic and Kondak. The overall localization rate of rehabilitation medical devices in China is high, but the localization rate of high-end rehabilitation medical devices is relatively low. According to the statistics of medical rehabilitation equipment on a medical platform, as of December 20, 2021, there are 5,013 valid products of medical rehabilitation equipment, of which more than 90% are domestic products. This platform also pointed out that China’s medium and low-end rehabilitation medical equipment products have low but large-scale unit prices, while high-end rehabilitation equipment is still imported from abroad. .
