Market Intel: Bioelectronics, Imaging Fortify Medtech's Defense Against Rheumatoid Arthritis

As rheumatoid arthritis treatment improves in the biologics era, patients need fewer joint replacements. Instead, they now require more closely monitored, agile care, in the face of a growing shortage of qualified rheumatologists. These demands help propel digital health applications, bioelectronic devices and novel imaging modalities into the medtech spotlight.

Wireless Technology And The Rise Of “Anywhere” Monitoring

The emerging market for wireless and remote monitoring technologies comes at a time when providers are looking for new tools to not only keep patients out of the hospital, but also to prevent unnecessary readmissions. These goals, along with a growing list of enabling technologies in the pipeline, are helping drive health care toward an era of unprecedented connectivity – one in which physicians and other care givers are able to monitor and even treat patients whenever needed wherever they may be – a shift that many believe will profoundly change health care as we know it.

Deep Brain Provides Stimulating Market

There are signs that the field of deep brain stimulation (DBS) has gained a certain momentum of late: three start-ups raised venture rounds in 2011 and there have been two acquisitions in the space within the past year. DBS enables the giants in cardiac rhythm management – Medtronic, St. Jude Medical, and Boston Scientific –to leverage existing technology platforms from CRM to address a new area once served primarily by drugs, and start-ups can help them by validating new disease targets and increasing procedural accuracy and efficiency. The space is appealing because with a single platform, companies can address several diseases with large populations, such as depression and Alzheimer’s disease. But the opportunities remain far from certain with this highly complex technology.
