By and large, the COVID-19 pandemic has been a tipping point for the healthcare sector. It has created a wider demand for essential life-saving devices and other essential medical supplies for the patients in a short span of time since the first outbreak. That being said, the most in-demand medical instrument amid this time has been catheters. And it is not just for the treatment of the patients with suspected or confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 but also for patients of other diseases like urological and cardiovascular disorders. This also involves a growing number of surgeries at hospitals, demanding catheter usage at some point in the procedure. Therefore, the demand for these devices will remain huge throughout the pandemic and the period thereafter.
Driven by the growth of the catheter stabilization market, medical manufacturers are upping the ante with specialized micro-assembly production lines. These assembly lines are capable of manufacturing minimally invasive surgical devices such as a therapeutic catheter with complex geometry and functionality. This would enable precise fabrication of detailed parts, in a reliable and controllable manner and for a multitude of use-cases. Additionally, the functionality of catheters is now being further augmented by using sensors, screens, and data recorders among other electronics.
Along the same line, there is also a growing trend of using embedded electronics in catheters. It is currently replacing bulky control panels of older catheter designs, without sacrificing the device’s safety, usability and efficiency. Subsequently, catheter handling is becoming simpler, more energy-efficient and straightforward while reducing the device’s overall weight and increasing its portability.
At this juncture, there is a variety of catheter device providers are available in the market that cater to the different needs of healthcare organizations. To help healthcare businesses choose the solution provider that best fits their requirement, MedTech Outlook has compiled lists of catheter device providers. Besides, the magazine also comprises insights from thought leaders in the sector on the industry trends, best practices, recent innovations, and their advice for aspiring CXOs.
