The global single-use negative pressure wound therapy devices market is
witnessing a shift toward advanced home care settings from traditional
hospital settings. In hospitals, the cost of stay and wound care
treatment accounts for around 50%-60% of the total NPWT (both single
NPWT and standard NPWT) wound therapy treatment. Hence, to reduce that
cost, the individuals prefer home care settings, where the wound can be
treated with simplified portable NPWT systems and single-use NPWT
systems. These systems are less expensive, and a skilled nurse is only
required for the wound care treatment, which reduces the cost burden on

The top three application segments of the global single-use negative
pressure wound therapy devices market are discussed below:

Pressure ulcers

Pressure ulcers affect people who are confined to bed or a wheelchair
for a long period. Continuous pressure on the skin reduces the
circulation of oxygen and blood. This results in tissue damage and
formation of wounds. Pressure ulcers usually occur on elbows, shoulder,
ankles, the spine, and heels.

According to Srinivas Sashidhar, a lead orthopedics
and medical devices
research analyst from Technavio, "A pressure
ulcer can increase cost burden based on the severity of the disease. To
reduce the cost burden, healthcare systems use single-use NPWT devices,
which offer better patient care. Medela, which manufactures products for
surgery and patient care develops Invia Motion, which has a disposable
NPWT pump. It also develops disposable canister and tubing sets for

Diabetic foot ulcer

Diabetic patients are at a risk of developing foot ulcers because of
damage to the sensory nerves and reduction of blood circulation.
According to a study conducted by the Health Research Institute,
Diabetes Research Center, Ahvaz Jundishapur University of Medical
Sciences and Nursing and Midwifery School, Ahvaz Jundishapur University
of Medical Sciences, Iran in 2015, diabetic foot ulcer affects around
15% of the diabetic population.

"Diabetic patients also have high blood sugar levels, disrupted blood
movement, and an impaired immune response; so, they are prone to
infection as the process of wound healing is delayed, and amputation is
often required. A diabetic ulcer usually heals in 12-14 weeks,"

Venous leg ulcer

Venous leg ulcers occur because of high pressure in the veins of legs as
a result of an injury. According to a study conducted by the Department
of Dermatology, INHS Asvini, India in 2014 showed that the prevalence of
venous leg ulcer increases to 4% in the population aged 65 years and
