  • Improving health care in major countries, such as the U.S., Japan, and China, have led to increased life expectancy of the population. According to the data released by the WHO SAGE publication group, Brazil, Thailand, South Korea, and China are expected to have a large geriatric population in a short span of time.
  • Japan, the U.S., and the U.K. are also expected to follow a similar pattern. Growth in geriatric population is likely to lead to an increase in disabilities. This will drive the demand for various mobility devices.
  • The ‘Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD)’ promotes access to mobility devices and assistive technologies among its member countries in a bid to provide these devices at affordable cost. This convention also facilitates training people with disabilities to use patient lifting devices apart from professionals working in facilitation and rehabilitation services.
