Also referred to as non-disposable medical equipment or home medical equipment, durable medical equipment are specially designed for patients with chronic or acute medical conditions to assist them in carrying out everyday tasks. Durable medical equipment are generally categorized into temporary hospital-grade equipment, personal mobility devices, monitoring and therapeutic devices. Personal mobility devices (such as wheelchairs, crutches, canes, and walkers) are designed for providing assistance to individuals with mobility-related challenges, while monitoring and therapeutic equipment include oxygen equipment, blood glucose analyzers, infusion pumps, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) devices, and vital sign monitors.

Durable medical equipment enable patients to be more independent and help reduce the amount of assistance they would otherwise require from caregivers. Moreover, these devices help improves the psychological wellbeing and social engagement ability of patients with certain disabilities. Hence, growing need for point-of-care therapies and home healthcare solutions, increasing patient pool, rising awareness of the significant benefits of durable medical equipment, latest advancements in assistive technology such as incorporation of robotics and exoskeletons are other factors expected to further boost market revenue growth over the forecast period.
