Repositioning and Offloading Devices Market : Global Industry Analysis 2016 - 2020 and Opportunity Assessment 2021 - 2031
Repositioning and Offloading Devices Market Overview
According to the latest research by Future Market Insights, the repositioning and offloading devices Market is set to experience 6% growth during the year 2021-2031.
Repositioning and offloading devices are particularly used for the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers.
These ulcers in the diabetic person are caused due to poor circulation in a particular area, hyperglycaemia or any nerve damage. During the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers, pressure modulation also known as offloading is used to mitigate the pressure from a particular area.
What is the Driving Demand for Repositioning and Offloading Devices
The main aim of offloading devices is to mitigate the pressure and promote healing. The drivers for this market can include the recurrence of ulceration in the diabetic foot.
The growth of this market is anticipated due to the rise in the prevalence of diabetes. According to research, diabetes-related foot ulceration (DFU) affects 26 million people annually worldwide and results in large mortality.
The increasing geriatric population are more prone to diabetes and DFU. According to a UN report, the geriatric population is expected to increase by 16% by 2050. This may act as a driver for the market. Apart from DFU, different pressure ulcers are caused majorly due to immobility. This is particularly seen in elderly people and patients with spine or back injuries.
These injuries restrict the movement of the patient, due to which pressures are created on specific body parts. The increase in the number of surgeries and the development of pressure ulcers will drive the market.
The repositioning devices are particularly used to move the patient from one place to another. This may include shifting them from one department o hospital to another. For example, shifting them from outpatient department to inpatient department or ICU. The rise in the prevalence of accidents and injuries drives this market.
Impact of Covid on Repositioning and Offloading Device Market
In March 2020, WHO declared the outbreak of Covid-19 as a pandemic. Like any other sector, the healthcare sector was also tremendously impacted by it.
Due to restrictions, the lifestyle of the people changes and became sedentary. This sedentary lifestyle has led to an increase in chronic disorders, diabetes and the occurrence of pressure ulcers.
To combat the deadly virus, the hospitals were asked only to perform essential surgeries. For the movement of patients post-surgery repositioning devices were used. Hence, COVID-19 had a positive impact on this market.

Regional Demand Outlook for Repositioning and Offloading Devices
The repositioning and offloading devices market is dominated by North America with the US being the dominating country.
Also, the major manufacturing companies are present in this region. For instance, Next Health in partnership with McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine and University of Pittsburgh’s Human Engineering Research Laboratory (HERL) developed a zero lift transfer and repositioning system known as AgileLife Transfer & Mobility System.
This system approximately requires only 2 minutes to transfer the patient from bed to chair or vice versa.
This reduces the time required for transfer and makes it easy for caregivers. The other major country dominating this market in the UK. The prevalence of diabetes is increasing in the UK. According to a report by Diabetes UK, by 2030 5.5 billion people will have diabetes if proper measures are not taken.
Followed by North America, Europe is expected to dominate the repositioning and offloading market. This is due to the growing obese population. According to a report by Eurostat, in 2019, 53% of the population were overweight. Therefore, the growing obese population will drive the market.
