Key Findings from The Patient Simulators Market

  • The patient simulator market by product is segmented into adult patient simulator, infant simulator and childbirth simulator. The adult patient simulator segment held a largest market share of 50.3% of the patient simulators, by product.
  • This segment is also expected to dominate the market in 2025. The growth of the market is primarily attributed to the use of adult patient simulators in various training programs across the globe and also the segment is expected to grow with the fastest growth rate of 17.3% during the forecast period, 2018 to 2025.
  • On the basis of end user, the patient simulator market is segmented into patient institutes, hospitals and military organizations. the academic institutes segment is expected to dominate the market based on the end user contributing a share of 41.9%. This is primarily attributed to rising training programs in the academic institutes using simulators. Moreover, academic institutes segment is anticipated to grow at a fastest growth rate of 17.4% during the forecast period.
  • The major players operating in the global patient simulators market include, CAE Healthcare, Laerdal Medical, 3D Systems, Inc., Gaumard Scientific, Kyoto Kagaku Co., Ltd., Simulab Corporation, Simulaids, Surgical Science, Surgical Science and Limbs & Things LTD among others. For instance, in January 2018, Laerdal Medical launched the new SimNewB and SimBaby simulators. The launch increased the ability to strengthen the portfolio of simulators. The developments performed by the companies are helping the market to grow in the coming years.

Increasing Demand for Minimally Invasive Treatment Methods

A minimally invasive medical procedure is generally carried out by entering the device in body through the skin or through a body cavity or anatomical opening, but with the smallest damage possible to these structures. Minimally invasive surgeries are being performed widely during the recent years.

In the last few years, remarkable development has been made in the field of cardiovascular disease treatment. However, these complex medical procedures require a combination of rich experience and technical skills. The complex treatment of the cardiovascular diseases are made easier with the help of simulators. The system can generate realistic 3D vascular models segmented from patient datasets, which include a beating heart, and deliver a real-time computation of force and force feedback module for patient simulators.

The medical simulators offer clinicians the most realistic hands-on experience in medical training using surgical simulators to perform minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and interventional procedures, at the least patient risk. Nowadays, there are laparoscopic surgery simulators with haptic or tactile feedback, wet-lab courses involving live animals in laparoscopic or microsurgery, and virtual reality computer programs addressing a widening range of surgical and interventional procedures.

High Cost of Patient Simulators

Patient simulators are combined with computer software that replicate normal and abnormal bodily answers to asthma attack and therapeutic interventions. Costs associated with the use of medium- and high-fidelity manikins were calculated to determine the total cost for each. The cost-utility analysis with the help of multiattribute utility function was conducted for the combination costs and three outcomes of clinical reasoning, knowledge acquisition and student satisfaction from a quasi-experimental study to arrive at an overall cost utility. For instance, 3B Scientific Patient Care Manikin BASIC, for simulation in healthcare was developed for scenario-based training of basic patient care and nursing skills. The simulator costs approximately US$ 2700. Moreover, the 3B Scientific Birthing Simulator P90 PRO is developed for the skill training in normal deliveries, in complicated deliveries and in obstetric emergencies. This simulator costs around US$ 1500.

Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality in Patient Simulators

Virtual reality (VR) is the combination of human senses that include touch & sight, hearing, with software & hardware to create an immersive examining virtual environment. VR is a three-dimensional (3D) computer generated environment that an individual can explore and interact with, and also perform a series of actions or manipulate objects within the environment. Augmented reality (AR) is comprised of virtual reality superimposed into the real life, where users are able to interact with virtual contents of the real world. These virtual contents are basically in the form of digital imagery and sound which include videos or 3D models.
