Researchmoz, in a new market report, projects the rehabilitation robots market to reach $1.1 billion by 2022, increasing from $221.4 million in 2015.

Rehabilitation robots are mostly used inside rehabilitation treatment centers and sports facilities to help provide rehabilitation to patients who have incurred injuries or physical dysfunction.

One such use is in stroke therapy, to help engage patients in repetitive tasks to help rewire their brains’ neurological pathways and relearn movements.

Such devices are based on automated processes, the use of a motor, or the use of microprocessor technology controlled by software, according to a media release from Researchmoz.

A growth possibility is the opportunity for launching a homecare equipment market if it is done through sports clubs rather than through clinical facilities. In addition, per the release, as clinicians realize that more gains could be made by using rehabilitation robots in the home, the pace of vendor acquisitions could pick up in an effort to consolidate the industry.
