Stimulation of muscles and nerves by the use of electrical stimulation, notably TENS and EMS, has long been part of pain management. But recent developments, such as implanted technologies and the small size/low cost systems, have created a pathway for increased usage and revenue growth. The growing approval of these applications by government regulators and insurance carriers have helped boost demand.

Since Kalorama Information's last look at this market six years ago, several implanted electrode therapeutic systems have recently emerged in the market and the potential of this market has clearly caught the eye of pharmaceutical and microelectronics companies, which are actively expanding their stake in electrode therapeutics through research, collaborations, and acquisitions. These actions will push more applications into the marketplace, and medical insurance will likely recognize a long-term savings for electronic treatment of chronic and debilitating conditions.

Kalorama's Electrical and Magnetic Neurostimulation: Applications, Technologies, and Market Potential, looks at the market for these devices and provides current market and forecast for the following segments:

External Electrical and Neurological Stimulation Devices, including:

  • Bone Growth Stimulators
  • TENS
  • EMS
  • Ultrasound-accelerated Fracture Healing
  • Other (ECT/TMS)
Implanted Electrical and Neurological Stimulation Devices, including:
  • Implantable Bone Growth
  • Cardiac Rhythm Management
  • Deep Brain (DBS)
  • Gastric Electrical (GES)
  • Sacral Nerve (SNS)
  • Spinal Cord (SCS)
  • Vagus Nerve (VNS)
As part of its comprehensive coverage of electrical and magnetic neurostimulation, the report looks at several trends that will have positive and negative effects on the marketplace. These include:
