With the continuous promotion of multiple policies, rehabilitation robots are giving birth to a huge blue ocean market


The market share of rehabilitation Robots in the overall medical robots ranks second, second only to surgical robots, and is a high-end rehabilitation medical technology developed in recent years.

Rehabilitation robots can be divided into two types: auxiliary and therapeutic. Among them, auxiliary rehabilitation robots are mainly used to help patients, the elderly, and disabled people better adapt to daily life and work, and partially compensate for their weakened functions, while therapeutic rehabilitation robots are Mainly to restore some functions of the patient.

Judging from the current clinical effects, rehabilitation robots can comprehensively reduce the workload of rehabilitation practitioners and improve treatment efficiency and accuracy. Relying on a series of intelligent technologies, rehabilitation robots can also promote the active participation of patients, objectively evaluate the intensity, time and effect of rehabilitation training, and make rehabilitation treatment more systematic and standardized.

Generally speaking, a large number of disabled people, patients with mental disabilities, patients with neurological diseases and other rehabilitation groups are the key service targets of future rehabilitation robots. With the continuous emergence of new technologies and new directions such as artificial intelligence and 5G, rehabilitation robots will make The rehabilitation medical industry has ushered in subversive innovations, which have produced important values, and will further promote the medical field to move towards intelligence and achieve win-win cooperation in multiple fields.

Multiple policies boost the accelerated development of rehabilitation robots

Not long ago, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and other 17 departments issued the “robot +” Application Action Implementation Plan, which directly pointed out that it is necessary to accelerate the application of robots in the fields of medical health and elderly care, and actively promote the application verification of elderly care robots in elderly care service scenarios.

At the same time, it also encourages relevant experimental bases in the field of elderly care to use robot applications as an important part of experimental demonstrations, and to develop and promote technology to help the elderly, new technologies, new products and new models. Research and formulate standards and specifications for the application of robotics to help the elderly and the disabled, promote the integration of robots into different scenarios and key areas of elderly care services, and improve the level of intelligence in elderly care services.

The previously released “14th Five-Year Plan for Robot Industry Development” and “14th Five-Year Plan for the Development of National Aging Care and Pension Service System” also pointed out that for the needs of medical health, elderly care and assistance for the disabled, focus on promoting services Research and application of robots, accelerate the integrated application of new technologies in health-promoting rehabilitation aids, and develop rehabilitation aids such as exoskeleton rehabilitation training.

Compared with western developed countries, my country’s rehabilitation robot industry started relatively late, and it has only gradually risen since 2017. After more than five years of development, my country’s rehabilitation robots have been widely used in rehabilitation nursing, prosthetics and rehabilitation treatment. Data show that the compound annual growth rate of my country’s rehabilitation robot industry has reached 57.5% in the past five years.

In the long run, rehabilitation robots are an important driving force to effectively fill the gap between the supply and demand of doctors and patients and comprehensively promote the digital upgrading of the medical rehabilitation industry. As my country’s aging population continues to accelerate and the number of patients with chronic diseases increases year by year, the huge demand for rehabilitation medical services and rehabilitation medical equipment is promoting the rapid development of the local rehabilitation robot industry.

The data shows that from 2016 to 2020, the market size of China’s rehabilitation industry increased from 57.5 billion yuan to 122 billion yuan, with an average annual compound growth rate of 20.69%. The market size of rehabilitation medical equipment alone is as high as 38 billion yuan. The compound growth rate is as high as 21.39%. According to the analysis of industry authorities, it is estimated that by 2025, the market size of China’s rehabilitation medical equipment will reach 81 billion yuan.
