The U.S. market for home care products and equipment continues to post steady gains, primarily as a result of the aging population and increasing shifts of chronic care patients from hospitals to home. In 2004, an estimated 16 million people received home health care in the United States, and most of these individuals also used associated home care products.
Through 2009, the numbers of home care patients will continue to grow as patient lifespans are extended with more sophisticated medical care and new technologies, and home care becomes an increasingly important and accepted means to contain healthcare costs for managed care providers.
