Market Overview

The requirement of medical simulation in minimally-invasive surgery has been established over the past few years. In minimally-invasive surgery (MIS), doctors use various methods to operate with minimal damage to the body as opposed to traditional open surgery. Traditional open surgeries involve long incisions that should be made through the muscles, which take considerable time to heal. MIS procedures, however, involve smaller incisions, leading to a quicker recovery.

Over the past few years, VR (virtual reality) trainers have been introduced for training in minimally-invasive techniques. MIS is highly suitable for such type of training. The specific eye-hand coordination and psychomotor skills required for MIS can be learned, mainly using VR simulation techniques. Simulation has thus proven to be a proper tool to learn and train these skills. Thus, with the increasing number of minimally-invasive procedures, the demand for medical simulators is likely to increase in the region.

Scope of the report

As per the scope of the report, medical simulation is the modern-day methodology for training healthcare professionals through the use of advanced educational technology. Medical simulation is experiential learning that every healthcare professional may need, but cannot be always engaged in during real-life patient care. The market for medical stimulation is growing with increasing healthcare facilities.

Key Market Trends

High-fidelity Simulators Segment is Expected to Show Better Growth in the Forecast Years

Based on technology, the market is segmented into high-fidelity, medium-fidelity, and low-fidelity simulators. The high- fidelity simulators (HFS) are the latest models incorporated in the computer hardware technology, which includes wireless and programmed, very realistic, full-body patient presentations. A high-fidelity manikin can be used for a variety of high stakes learning scenarios, such as a mock code, postpartum hemorrhage, or mass casualty incident.

Currently, high-fidelity simulations are widely accepted in nursing education, and are introduced into acute care to support with orientation programs, continuing education, certification courses, and staff development. Hence, the requirement of realistic models to provide a better training environment is promoting the usage of high-fidelity simulators.
