Neurological stimulation is the primary focus of this Kalorama Information Report. Numerous treatment techniques and devices apply therapeutic energy to selected areas of the body. Most act on nerves and muscles, and many use electrical stimulation. Such electrical techniques are variously referred to as neurostimulation, or neuromodulationthese two words refer to essentially the same group of techniques.
Market numbers discussed in this report are focused on the global neurostimulation device market with special coverage on the U.S. and European markets. All sales are displayed at the manufacturers' level in U.S. dollars. Rather than attempting to define and classify all of the varying electrostimulatory methods, this report groups technologies into basic categories based on application and complexity. Two general segments are discussed with various sub-segments included.
Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) and Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS) Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) External Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation (eTNS) Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation (t-VNS) Carotid Sinus Nerve Stimulation (CSNS) Cochlear Implants Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Gastric Electrical Stimulation (GES) Phrenic Nerve Stimulation (PNS) Sacral Nerve Stimulation (SNS) Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS)Neurostimulation is often associated with use in pain relief or therapy. It is naturally segmented into two classifications: those that use external electrodes and those that use internal (implanted) electrodes.
The two common external electrode methods are electromuscular stimulation (EMS) and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), which both use similar equipment and external electrodes. Spinal cord stimulation and vagus nerve stimulation rely on implanted electrodes to mitigate pain or minimize seizures or tremors. The base year for the report is 2014 with forecasts provided for each year through 2019. Market size and trends are discussed for the years 2009 through 2013. The market was evaluated via a combination of disease prevalence trends, population trends, device innovations, federal and industry standards and regulations. Both primary and secondary sources were consulted in developing market estimates.
The market was formulated by first calculating individual market segments within the global neurostimulation device market, i.e. deep brain stimulation, sacral nerve stimulation and spinal cord stimulation, using direct manufacturer data. These data were collected through interviews with industry participants and experts. Secondary methods were used to verify initial findings including, but not limited to, company literature, medical databases, insurance databases, pricing reports, government reports and databases and other key secondary resources.
Key players in the market are also discussed including:
American Imex Amrex Electrotherapy Equipment Bioness, Inc. Boston Scientific, Inc Cochlear, Ltd. Cyberonics, Inc Delsys, Inc DJO International Dynatronics Corporation Electromedical Products International (EPI) Magstim Company, Ltd. Medtronic, INC Multi Radiance Medical, Inc Neuronetics, Inc Noraxon USA, Inc Prizm Medical, Inc. Rich-Mar Corporation RS Medical ST Jude Medical, Inc.
