Increasing Concerns Pertaining to Patient Comfort to Drive Market
Patients with mobility disorders are already suffering from lack of free body movement. Added to that is the discomfort of using regular crutches, which are industrial in design, but low on comfort. Thus, crutch pads can go a long way in reducing the discomfort of patients, which will boost the global crutch pads market growth. For example, crutch pads can reduce chafing and underarm pain as they are generally anti-microbial. This factor is expected to be a major driver in the global crutch pads market.
Furthermore, the global crutch pads market size is set to expand steadily on account of the growing number of cases of disabilities related to mobility. This has been substantiated by the National Institute on Disability, Independence Living, and Rehabilitation Research which estimates that the number people with mobility disorders has risen to 12.6% in 2015 from 11.9% in 2010.
