The rising incidence of road accidents and other severe injuries also contributes to the increase in hospitalizations. This has led to a sharp increase in the demand for patient handling equipment. Additionally, the burden of physical inactivity in chronic patients has also led to the increasing demand for patient lateral transfers. Furthermore, the high risk of musculoskeletal injuries suffered by caregivers while manual handling the patients is also propelling the growth of the overall global market.
