Patch test?

A look at the rise and rise of sensor use and of virtual

healthcare services.

IDTechEx* has released a report

on the market for electronic skin

patches. The report captures

the impact of the COVID-19

pandemic as well as the broader

emerging trends across the relevant

product sectors.

Having covered the subject over

the last decade as part of wider

research efforts in wearables and

medical devices, this report looked

at each of the key market sectors

involved. Diabetes management

is the largest and most successful

sector, predominantly with CGM but

also increasing adoption of patch

pumps for insulin delivery and moves

towards closed-loop systems.

Cardiovascular monitoring is the

other sector generating revenue

in the billions of dollars each year

but is far more fragmented in

terms of players, product trends,

and geographies. These skin

patch cardiovascular monitors

are increasingly at the centre of

an expansion to a more general

approach to patient monitoring, both

for hospital inpatients and beyond

into various outpatient applications.

Other sectors such as temperaturebased

monitoring (fever monitoring,

fertility monitoring), electrical

stimulation devices, iontophoresis

(a treatment for excessive sweating),

and other patient monitoring devices

are also covered in the report.

On the impact of Covid-19,

James Hayward, Principal Analyst

at IDTechEx and lead author of

the report, said, "Rather than any

lasting negative impact as seen

elsewhere, the pandemic has led to

an acceleration in many of the key

trends underpinning the development

of this market. Wider adoption of

telehealth, additional drivers for

remote patient monitoring, and

larger-scale adoption of digital

patient management solutions

were all trends which we covered

previously, but the acceleration in

each has left us two years ahead of

our original projections for their

widespread adoption."

Telehealth

The report says that initial lockdowns

caused a significant negative

impact in many sectors due to the

postponement of 'non-essential'

physician visits. However, many

companies immediately shifted to

more telehealth-based services

which helped to meet the demand.

In addition, regulatory barriers were

Caption 28 application areas discussed within the report. Source IDTec.
