Global Neurostimulation Devices Market 2015


Reading time ( words)

Available pharmacological treatment for conditions such as chronic pain, epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, and depression are not sufficient for all patients at all stages of treatment. More than 100 million people suffer from these conditions in the US alone. Though drug therapy, physiotherapy, and surgeries are effective treatment options, they are not suitable for all patients. For example, approximately 15-20% of epilepsy patients are drug-resistant and require alternate treatment method. Neurostimulation is a potential alternative for patients for whom the drug therapy or surgery is not effective.

Neurostimulation devices are implantable devices that help in the therapeutic activation of the nervous systems. These devices deliver electrical stimulation to the brain and nervous systems for the treatment of various types of neurological disorders such as pain, epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, dystonia, and tremors. These devices target specific areas of the brain or spinal cord by blocking the pain messages before they reach the brain. 

Technavio's analysts forecast the global neurostimulation devices market to grow at a CAGR of 5.37% over the period 2014-2019.

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

01/11/2021 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.
