Market Intel: Apps for Epilepsy, Steps for Health, Meditation Guides, Mouth Labs Cross Digital Divide For Better Health
Startups at the convergence of technology and biomedical innovations showcased compelling innovations at this week's Exponential Medicine conference in San Diego. This article offers a roundup of new devices targeting a wide range of applications from neurology, cardiology, chronic diseases and wellness.
Latest From Market Intelligence
The global market for ventilators and pulmonary function assessment products is expected to reach $1.7bn by 2022, driven in large part by rising incidences of pulmonary diseases in the elderly population. The larger market segment of diagnostics spirometry products will grow at a faster rate than the smaller pulmonary function testing and disposable products market, driven by an emphasis of disease prevention via early diagnosis in outpatient and alternate care settings. Check out our infographic on the market.
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement pioneer Martin Leon discussed what is coming down the pike for technologies in the TAVR and heart valve device space at the recent Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) conference in San Diego. Here is a run-down of what he highlighted, including AI-driven technologies that promise to improve patient access and outcomes. This is the first of a two-part series focusing on innovations in interventional cardiology.
The worldwide joint-replacement implants market is expected to hit $20bn by 2022, according to a new report from Meddevicetracker. The growth is driven by the rising number of elderly patients, whose natural joints have been damaged by arthritis, and the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, such as obesity and diabetes, and sport-related injuries. But a look at the market and the three largest segments – shoulder, knee and hip replacements – show that new technological advancements and improved surgical techniques are increasingly making joint replacement surgeries an option for younger people as well. Here's an overview and key insights from two orthopedic surgeons on the current market and key growth drivers and limiters.
Robotic pill technology, which is already being used for diagnostic purposes, will likely be embraced for the oral delivery of biologic drugs as well. Biologic therapies currently require injections in most cases, but some are exploring specialized robotic pills as a pain-free approach that could increase convenience and compliance, and thus efficacy, of medicines. Several established companies and research centers are working on both diagnostic and biologic therapeutic applications of pill-based technologies.
Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Provista Diagnostics is looking at breast cancer with a focus on early detection. The manufacturer's Videssa assay aims to rule out breast cancer in women with both dense and non-dense breast tissue, and the firm is providing guidance to physicians in cases where imaging modalities are inconclusive. See what Provista CEO Gary Altman said about it here.
The potential to use a simple blood test to guide physicians in monitoring cancer therapies, detect early cancers, serve as a companion diagnostic to guide targeted therapeutics and predict the likely course or outcomes of disease in patients has spurred a lot of interest and innovation. Here's a look at emerging companies hoping to make an impact, including insights from interviews conducted with C-Level visitors at the recent Liquid Biopsy Conference in San Francisco. This is the second of a two-part series focusing on the global liquid biopsy market.
