A sensor is embedded in an electronic based medical device which helps to convert various stimuli into electrical signals for early detection and preventative care. Sensors play an essential role in improving the efficacy of monitoring equipment. These have helped to establish the utmost level of reliance and precision of a medical device and are the most important diagnostic tool for healthcare providers. Cost effectiveness and hygiene consciousness are paving the way for disposable sensors and sensor based equipment, which in turn is likely to drive the overall market for medical sensors.
Although, sensors do not need a direct approval from FDA or CE, meeting stringent output specifications in terms of accuracy, reliability of measurement, precision and ease of use is one of the major challenges in this market.
The report focuses on various sensors in medical applications such Image sensors, pressure sensors, flow sensors, temperature sensors, etc. The report also studies sensor technology across virtual reality and associated sensors along with sensors in home care setting which include patient fall detection, ear and forehead thermometry. The geographies covered in this study are North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC) and Rest of the world (ROW). The report will also analyze opportunities in the market for the stakeholders by identifying high-growth segments of the market.
